Dock Seals & Shelters
Loading dock seals and shelters prevent rain and snow from getting into your facility, which can cause damage to your facility and products within. The dock seals and shelter keep dust, dirt, and other debris out.
How Dock Seals Work - The trailer compresses into the dock seal when it backs in and comes to rest against the dock bumper, forming a 'seal' around the side of the trailer.
How Dock Shelters Work - The side and top curtain provide shelter like wiper action to keep the weather out, while the raked header allows for water run-off
Loading Dock Levelers
Dock levelers provide an easy way to correct the height difference between a dock and trailer bed.
How Dock Levelers Work: The leveler is positioned by lifting and pulling the handle to the dock floor. The latch assembly activates the lip, projecting it forward onto the trailer bed as the handle lifts.
When released, the handle automatically returns to its stored position.
The loading dock is a high-risk area for on-the-job accidents with leading causes including premature departure, trailer creep, and dock walk. This is why OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.178(k) (1) stipulates that all trucks must be restrained throughout loading and unloading operations.
Vehicle restraints enhance loading dock safety by latching onto the trailer and keeping them from detaching from the dock during loading and unloading.
