Dock Seals & Shelters


Dock seals and shelters can significantly improve the energy efficiency and environment control of buildings, reducing costs.  They provide an effective barrier against the elements, keeping loading docks safe and efficient.

Dock seals and shelters also provide a positive seal between internal and external environments.  They prevent the passage of dust, insects, exhaust fumes and other airborne particulate matter while the loading dock is in use.


Dock seals are constructed from high-density polyurethane foam and solid wood.  Cover material and wear pleats are top-grade fabrics providing superior performance and weather resistance.

The RF Series dock shelter is constructed from solid wood, top-grade, abrasion-resistant fabric and translucent fiberglass panels.
