GS Series

General Description

NOVA GS Series Dock Shelter—engineered for use with swing-door trailers, the GS Dock Shelter seals the air and light gaps through door hinges while still allowing full access into the trailer.  Provides maximum dock protection while minimizing pressure on the building wall.  Utilizing foam side pads in its construction, it is capable of compressing and bending out of the way of a truck which fails to properly align with the doorway, preventing costly repairs.  Designed for door openings up to 12 feet wide x 12 feet high.
