The current dock seals and shelters were badly worn at Ontario Potato Distributing Inc. in Alliston Ontario. As a result, they were not making a seal when the trailers were backed in. Additionally, there was a lot of heat loss being caused by these gaps in the seal.
By working with the local utility company, Northern Dock Systems was able to acquire a one-time energy rebate of $4,750 for Ontario Potato Distributing Inc. to replace their worn-out dock seals and shelters.
Therefore by replacing the seals with new stationary foam frame dock seals or L-pad foam frame dock shelters, we have sealed up the gaps at the doors when the trailers are there. In addition to the energy savings, these new docks seals and shelters will prevent rain, snow and other weather elements from entering the building.
