Benefits of Loading Dock Enclosures

    HOW LOADING DOCK ENCLOSURE CURTAIN WALLS WORK

    TZ Insulated curtain walls can close off open docks on the exterior of the building, interior docks with grade-level openings, or other drafty areas of the building. Likewise, SCH Heavy-Duty Fabric Curtain Walls can be used to close off openings for trailer access when trailers are not present or not in use. Galvanized vertical control staffs with drop pins and floor sockets add stability in windy conditions.

    Zoneworks® TZ Insulated Wall panels are constructed of layers of industrial vinyl fabric wrapped around antimicrobial polyester batting. Custom engineering ensures proper fit around corners and obstructions. Wind retention and structural framing methods are included in the project design.

    • Maintain consistent facility temperatures and humidity levels for increased energy efficiency. 
    • Keep environmental elements outside and a safe, comfortable environment for employees inside.
    • Reduce heating and cooling costs around loading dock zones.
    • Protect your product from weather-related damage.

    INDUSTRIES SERVED

    TZ Insulated Curtain Walls benefit any industrial facility with existing open dock areas wanting to control temperature or humidity levels.

    It's essential to take the time to look at your facility, see if you have any areas where treated air meets non-treated air, and decide if an insulated curtain wall might be a solution to keep these environments separate. Industrial curtain walls can close off these open areas and extend the range of your treated air space.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Q: Do curtain walls attach to the floor?

    A: They do not, and we do not recommend it unless there is a heavy negative or positive pressure situation. Our sweeps at the bottom of the panels seal against the floor and match any voids or elevation changes in the floor slab. In the event the curtain needs to be anchored to the floor, steel angles can be positioned on the floor and the curtain secured to the steel angle.

    Q: What colors choices are available for dock enclosures?

    A: There are 5 standard colors available for the Flame Retardant Vinyl: Blue, White, Green, Gray, and Tan. There are 3 additional colors available (Yellow, Red, and Black), but these are subject to roll minimums and additional lead times. Custom colors are available if the PIM# is provided and a minimum yardage is purchased at additional cost.

    Q: What is the process for ordering a loading dock curtain wall?
