Loading Dock Seals and Shelters: What’s the Difference?
While both dock seals and dock shelters serve the critical purpose of sealing the gap between your loading dock and the trailer, they operate differently:
Loading Dock Seals
These are foam or inflatable padding that compress against the sides of the trailer, creating an airtight seal. Dock seals are ideal for temperature-controlled environments and for keeping contaminants out.
Loading Dock Shelters
Rather than compressing against the trailer, dock shelters are made of flexible, sturdy fabric curtains that wrap around the trailer, providing a weather-resistant barrier while allowing more freedom of movement. Shelters are suitable for a wider variety of trailer sizes and shapes.
Begley Dock Seals & Shelters
At Begley Overhead Doors & Docks, we understand that every loading dock has unique requirements. That’s why we offer specialized solutions like Rain Shrouds, ComboShelters, and Inflatable Shelters to ensure maximum protection and efficiency in any situation.
Rain shrouds are a perfect addition to your loading dock setup to provide extra protection against heavy rainfall. These durable, waterproof covers are designed to channel water away from the loading area, preventing water damage to your goods and reducing the risk of slips and falls.
The innovative ComboShelter combines the best features of dock seals and shelters, providing an adaptable and versatile solution for your loading dock. These hybrid systems offer a tight seal for temperature control and a flexible, retractable design that can accommodate a wide range of trailer sizes and shapes. Choose a ComboShelter for the ultimate in loading dock efficiency and protection.
Inflatable shelters are an excellent option for loading docks that require a secure, weather-resistant barrier that can be easily stored when not in use. These shelters inflate to create a tight seal around the trailer, offering enhanced energy efficiency and protection against contaminants. When not in use, they can be deflated and tucked away, minimizing wear and tear and saving valuable space in your loading dock area.
