Protecting the entire area with a solid system of sealing products is essential to maintaining the integrity of products, equipment and operations.

    The goal is to seal all gaps that are created, 24/7, when trailers are in place or not, and when overhead doors are open or closed.

    Besides proper top and bottom sealing of the overhead door itself, all four sides of the opening must be considered separately.

    The right combination of dock seals and shelters can provide a complete seal and greatly reduce precipitation that infiltrates a loading dock area.

    HVLS fans will not only provide a nice breeze that workers appreciate on a hot day, they can aid in the evaporation of condensation on dock floors.

    The next time you see a wet spot developing on the loading dock floor, contact a loading dock expert with a background in seals, shelters and HVLS fans to examine possible solutions.
