Dock Shelters


TRUCK TO DOCK SHELTERS

Dock Shelters, also known as Truck Shelters, come in a wide variety of sizes and models making them the most versatile truck to dock sealing product on the market. Unlike Dock Seals designed to close an opening down to 7'6", Truck Shelters provide full access to the trailer opening. This speeds up loading and unloading the rear of the trailer while reducing damage caused to your seal. The seal is set through the use of hanging curtains with spring steel stays designed to slide along the outside of the trailer as it docks, thus providing an effective weather seal regardless of the trailer size. In addition to a variety of options and add-ons, there are two types of frames offered through Loading Dock Supply.

Unsure of the model or dimensions your job requires?

There are a variety of factors that may affect the dimensions of your dock shelter. When considering which dock shelter model you need keep in mind the points below:

  1. Bumper projection determines the projection of a shelter (frame must be 18" greater than bumper projection from wall)
  2. Head curtain drop (length) and frame projection may be affected by significant truck height variance (We suggest speaking with a representative about this or supplying a completed dock survey found below)
  3. Slope of approach. Truck shelter frames are wedged to accommodate sloped aprons.
