Increase safety for workers: Maintain operational efficiency and enhance worker productivity by keeping workers safe—prevent moisture, dust, insects and other contaminants from entering the facility.

Ensure product safety: Prevent contamination with food, pharmaceutical and other products by creating a tight seal around the dock to inhibit contamination while saving energy at the same time.


Maximum weather protection

The Foam Frame dock shelter uses memory core foam sides that eliminate damage due to off-center loading. Its vertical curtains with stiffeners provide a weathertight seal and allows for unrestricted access to the trailer while the head curtain uses protective corner reinforcement pleats, wind retention straps and also contains stiffeners. Bottom corner pads reduce energy loss between the curtain and the side members. Foam Frame dock shelter’s sloped rigid head frame comes with a translucent top that allows for water drainage and natural light to shine through.

Dramatically enhance indoor safety with a Foam Frame dock shelter

Foam Frame dock shelter dramatically enhances indoor safety by creating the tightest seal around trailers to:

Prevent insects: Including flies, mosquitoes, spiders and other creepy crawlies.
Inhibit pests: Including mice, birds and other living creatures from entering indoors.
Keep harsh weather outside: Limit extreme heat or cold drafts and maintain comfortable indoor temperature.
Eliminate white light: Completely eradicate white light infiltration with a proper dock seal to ensure safety compliance.
Block moisture: Create a strong environmental separation between outdoor and indoor temperatures to prevent moisture build-up.

The benefits of a proper dock shelter

A proper dock shelter yields numerous benefits, including:

  • Energy loss prevention/increased energy savings.
  • Security and protection against stolen goods or unauthorized entry.

Check for air or light leaks in four key areas

An inefficient dock seal/shelter might not be the only cause of issues you are possibly facing—the performance of a dock seal/shelter directly relates to other products as well.

Check your loading dock in four key areas to determine if your dock seal or dock shelter needs to be replaced.

Inspect your dock for air or light leaks in key areas

1. Top of the trailer: Are your floors forming puddles or ice when it rains/snows? Seal the gap between the trailer top and your dock door to prevent slip and fall hazards.

2. Side of the trailer: Are you noticing white light infiltration? If so, you need to modify or replace your dock seal or dock shelter.

3. Dock leveler and trailer gap: Damaged goods or injuries to personnel are the biggest indicators of an uneven level between the trailer and the dock floor. Prevent injuries and damaged goods with a proper dock leveler.

4. Corners of the door: Don’t forget to seal the corners of your doors, which are common areas where insects, dust and other contaminants enter the facility.

Note: Remember that performance dock bumpers and bumper projection also affects the efficiency and longevity of any dock seal or dock shelter.
