While it can seem like a small issue, every little gap that you can see around a parked trailer at the entrance to a warehouse, can end up costing you hundreds of dollars in lost energy, every single year. Aside from the lack of energy efficiency, all of the gaps let in dust, wind, rain, bugs and rodents to your facility, and create not only a uncomfortable working environment for your employees, but can cause issues should you have to undergo a warehouse inspection.

Fortunately, here at Industrial Door Systems, we have the perfect solution for this problem, and stock a selection of dock seals and dock shelters. While both products serve the same purpose, they are designed differently for use in certain applications.

Dock seals come in all shapes and sizes, but the more you spend on them (as with many things in life!), the better they will perform, and the longer they will last. Top of the range dock seals come with special features that help to protect against many different types of damage, such as trailer pressure, friction, burns from trailer marker lights and head pad sag and pop off.

What is a dock shelter?

A dock shelter provides a secure seal around a trailer when parked up in a loading or unloading position, and hugs the sides and top of the trailer with a fabric that has been stiffened with fiberglass. The dock shelter is flexible enough to be adapted to suit a variety of trailers while still offering maximum sealing protection.

If you’re searching for a way to effectively seal the gaps between a vehicle such as a trailer, and a loading bay, then our dock shelters offer the perfect solution.

Here at Industrial Door Systems, we have a several different types of dock shelter, and we can help you determine which one would best suit your needs. Our most popular types are listed below:

Cushion dock shelter

If you have a dedicated fleet of vehicles, for example, then this type of dock shelter might work the best as they’re most effective when used for vehicles with minimal size differences.

Curtain dock shelter

These can be used for a wide variety of purposes, but are perhaps best suited where many different sizes of vehicle are being served.

Curtain dock shelter with foam core

This particular dock shelter works best when used in conjunction with vehicles that raise and lower over extreme distances, or for container vehicles.

Inflatable dock shelter

If vehicles that vary significantly in size are being served, then our inflatable dock shelter is the most effective way of providing a secure seal between the vehicle and the warehouse.

Below are some of the specific product details related to our range of dock shelters:

  • Dock shelter fabric – these are available in a variety of different fabrics for maximum durability and strength.
  • Wooden/metal framework – available in pressure treated lumber as standard, there are also options for steel tubing for added longevity
  • Fiberglass panels – this allows greater light to pass through the translucent panels and into the dock area.
  • Steel guards – protection from trailer impacts is provided by the heavy-duty steel channel guards that all dock shelters come with.
  • Draft pads – to prevent air from entering the sides of the trailer, all dock shelters come with fabric covered foam draft pads.
