Dock Shelters – a description

Dock shelters and dock seals protect your goods from the ever-changing weather conditions, prevent draughts, help reduce pest ingress, and save energy by sealing the gap between trailer and dock.

Pickerings Lifts can help you select the right size dock seal, retractable dock shelter, or inflatable shelter to best suit your requirements, depending on the ambient or freezer conditions, and trailer sizes.

Introduction to our range

We have a comprehensive range of dock shelters and seals to suit all loading bay environments, including warehouses, distribution hubs, logistics centres and manufacturing environments.

Geographical areas covered

Pickerings Lifts covers the whole of the UK.  We have twelve regional offices, and two dedicated Loading Systems offices.

With more than 200 engineers UK-wide, we have the resources and the capacity to respond to any dock shelter and seal servicing needs.  Each of our loading systems offices, and specialist dock shelter and seal engineers carry stock spares for emergency call-out purposes, with the aim of completing the emergency repair on a first-fix visit.

Dock shelters and seal support, maintenance and servicing

Pickerings Lifts supports all installation of dock shelters and seals, and associated loading bay accessories, with full maintenance, Pre-planned Maintenance (PPM) packages and emergency call-out and repairs.  We also supply bespoke critical repair and spares packages to meet customer demands.

Our range of dock shelters and seals includes:

Inflatable Dock Seals and Shelters

Inflatable dock seals and shelters will effectively seal around a variety of trailer sizes improving temperature control, safety and energy efficiency.

Inflatable seals can be combined with other dock equipment to improve the loading and unloading process.

Foam Pad Seals

Foam pad seals are ideal for ensuring an extremely tight seal. An air-tight compression seal is formed, ensuring all outside elements are kept out of the warehouse.  Foam dock pads tend to be used, more so, when there is a dedicated vehicle range, and when pest ingress might be an issue.

Heavy duty impactable foam is used to suit all trailer sizes and ensure maximum durability.

Foam pads can be tapered to suit loading bay approach slopes and designed to fit wider doorways.

Retractable Dock Shelters

Retractable shelters will effectively seal around a variety of trailer sizes improving temperature control, safety and energy efficiency.  They can be combined with other dock equipment to improve the loading and unloading process.

This type of dock shelter are the widest used in the loading bay environment, due to their flexibility, and their ease of maintenance and replacement of parts.  They also offer the widest range of sealing around the majority of vehicles.

Combined Dock Shelter

Combined dock shelter systems are tailored to your requirements. These consist of dock shelters with foam pad seals and/or inflatable seals.

A bespoke combined system will be designed by our Loading Systems team to provide you with the most effective solution for your bay.
