Dock seals are the solution to loading bays built into the sides of buildings. When trucks back up, they come to a stop against the dock seal and press into the foam pads that make up the dock seal. This creates a compression that then seals the truck trailer to the building with little to no space gap leading to the outside. Now employees can open the trail and load and unload without contaminating the docking area.

Dock seal “seal” the back of the trailer to the building. Dock shelters go a step further by providing full access to the back of the trailer. A trailer backs into the shelter area housing, almost like a bit of garage area before the dock doors.
The entrance to the dock shelter is a series of curtains hung from the dock shelter frame. The action of the trailer backing up causes the curtains to create a seal along the trailer. The trailer then backs up against other cushions for a snug and protective fit. Now all the inventory, employees, unloading equipment, and more are protected on all sides, including against any bottom or side drafts.
