Dock door seals and shelters play a very critical role in the daily operations of docks in a variety of ways. These products provide a greater sense of employee comfort, a safer work environment and energy conservation year round. Dock door seals and shelters offer protection for not only the dock itself, but also to valuable cargo that is being moved in and out of truck trailers all day long. Sometimes maintenance maybe required, or you might need dock seal replacement or shelter repair.
Loading Dock Seals Create Safety and Efficiency
Loading docks that are unsealed allow a massive amount of airflow to circulate into a building. Whether it be summer or winter season, it is always a good idea to prevent outside air from blowing into the interior of a dock area.
Competing air temperatures from both the outside and inside of a dock area will cause condensation to form, which can be a slip hazard for workers. In addition, energy costs are adversely affected by exposed dock facilities, as HVAC systems are forced to work harder than they normally would.
Often due to extreme use or the heavy weight that truck trailers exert on them, dock door seals and shelters can become worn over time. In addition, worn dock door seals and shelters can hinder the free movement of forklifts by protruding into the trailer. This occurrence can greatly increase the time required for a crew to load or unload a truck. It could be time for us to do a dock seal replacement job.
