A Quick Guide to Loading Dock Seals

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Nov 27, 2019 4:11:00 PM

Your loading dock is a bustling place--orders coming in, shipments going out--there is always something happening. No matter how well-built your loading dock is, there is likely some issue you face that could go a little bit smoother. That’s when accessories like dock seals come into play.

What are Loading Dock Seals?

Loading dock seals are an important way to protect your structure, trucks and shipments. A seal provides a tight closure between the truck and your loading dock. This keeps temperatures consistent and keeps insects, dampness and other things out of your building. If you have a particularly delicate load, this can be vital.

What’s the Difference Between Dock Seals and Dock Shelters?

Dock Seals can provide an airtight seal--where as a dock shelter is not quite as tight. However, since the seal is airtight, it does require a bit more attention to the size of the truck and the dock--there is less flexibility. Using a loading dock leveler may make it easier, depending on the situation at hand. When everthing comes together and fits, a dock seal provides the best possible protection to your most important loads.

Loading Dock Seal Repairs in NYC & NJ Area

Posted by Loading Dock Expert on Nov 23, 2015 6:49:31 AM

Loading docks act as a bridge between a truck and a dock platform.   When it gets really cold, it's important to repair your seals and brushes to prevent the cold drafts that come into your workspace.  Cold drafts can slow down productivity of your material handlers and increase your heating bills.

To stop the cold air from coming around your loading dock, we recommend any dock sealing solution below.  We have brushes to seal and close the gap between a loading dock and the concrete pit.  We have wedge seals to keep out the daylight between the rolling dock door and the pit leveler.

We stock all different types of brushes to help you eliminate the cold.  We even have brushes that act as a rodent deterrent.  

Perhaps you were really interested in dock door seals that hang on the exterior of a building?  To learn more about those seals, go to http://www.overhead-doors.com/dock-seals.
