Industries put high demands on loading bay sealing in order to keep the temperature chain as intact as possible. The dock shelter must provide continuous weather protection throughout the entire loading and unloading operation.
Contrary to other types of dock shelters, with the inflatable shelter the vehicle does not push towards the shelter. Instead, the shelter is inflated around the docked vehicle, providing complete sealing. The inflatable shelters are suitable for a wide range of vehicle sizes and their sealing capacity exceeds by far the standard normally required by operators.
In rest position, the shelter seal is completely retracted behind the side structures, giving the vehicle driver the possibility to use the complete width of the loading bay when reversing into it. In addition, yellow front line indicators further facilitate the dock-in navigation. Stable collision protectors at the ramp height prevent shelter damages.
The inflatable dock shelter is installed into a frame construction covered by insulated panels, giving additional insulation effects. The design facilitates easy and fast component exchange, should this be needed.
The side and top inflatable airbags are made of impact resistant material with a strong, woven core. It is non-flammable, color stable and highly resistant to weather impacts – in other words a material well suited for optimal function in rough docking environments.
