Getting a good fit around all sides of the trailers that come to a loading dock can be a big challenge – but Rite-Hite has a solution! In a single piece of equipment, the Eclipse Dock Shelter provides a tight, consistent seal all the way up trailer sides, across the top, and at the corners. Working together, the Eclipse shelter and PitMaster under-leveler sealing system provide an advanced, highly effective seal at the loading dock.
Sealing the Sides
Durable GapMaster™ hooks wrap around swing-open trailer doors, sealing hinge gaps that amount to over two and a half square feet of open air if left unsealed.
Sealing the Top
Along the top of the trailer, an exclusive weighted head curtain applies over 100 pounds of pressure across the full width of the trailer top. This gravity-based system keeps the curtain in constant contact with the trailer during loading and unloading, ensuring a tight, consistent seal.
Sealing the Corners
The Eclipse side curtains and weighted header work together to seal gaps that ordinary shelters don’t address. Innovative fabric corner pockets connect sides to top, providing a dark, complete seal when trailers back into place.
Sealing the Bottom
Below and around the dock leveler, the available PitMaster™ under-leveler sealing system provides a barrier against environmental infiltration on the exterior of the dock. Meanwhile, lip corner seals, filler pads and other components block gaps on the inside of the dock.
