Dock Shelter System
Deciding between a dock seal and a dock shelter can be a difficult task and making the right choice can impact the energy efficiency, sustainability efforts and overall productivity of your business. Dock seals offer superior sealing capability but they also restrict trailer access. Conventional dock shelters offer full trailer access but when a trailer’s doors are opened a series of gaps appear between the trailer hinges allowing weather to enter the facility and conditioned air to escape, reducing employee comfort and increasing energy costs. Dock Shelter System is specially designed to close off trailer hinge gaps while not restricting trailer access, securing superior energy-efficiency for your loading dock.
Extreme sealing dock shelter addition: designed to effectively seal the perimeter and stop air movement between the exposed trailer hinge gaps along the sides of 102” (8’-6”) wide trailers with swing-out doors
Ease of functionality: the HINGE GUARD option is automatically activated by the backing trailer by grasping the sides of the trailer and covering the hinge gaps to create a consistent seal top to bottom.
Offers superior sealing capabilities with full width trailer access.
Greater protection against dust, insect and other debris at the dock.
HINGE GUARD is an available option on all FoamSide® Dock Shelters.
Durable design: made from impact resistant High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (HMPE).
Available in two (2) profiles: a large profile for refrigerated trailers and a smaller profile for standard trailers doors.
Virtually no Maintenance Required: can easily be replaced when desired.
