Dock seals and dock shelters are used to get rid of gaps in docking spaces where trailers are parked. Dock seals
are specialized foam pads that provide a compression surface for trailers when they rest against the surface of dock bumpers
. Dock seals form a tight seal around the sides of the trailer and are best suited for various sizes of smaller types of trailers. They are relatively cheaper than dock shelters, take up less space and are much preferable where dock holes are small in size. Examples of dock seals include dock seal hoods, under leveler dock seals, and rain guard header seals. Dock shelters are much more expensive than dock seals and require more installation space. They are enclosing shelters that form a seal around the trailer's perimeter by using fiber glass-fitted fiber curtains to apply pressure onto the trailer's sides. Dock shelters are more suited where docking leaves bigger gaps and can seal off trailers with more height and varied sizes than dock seals.Get the finest selection of dock seals and dock shelters from MRO Supply.
