The Ultra Dark Dock Shelter is the ultimate combination of a soft-sided shelter with rain dam as one unit. This unit comes with light eliminating pleats and gap hooks for the side curtains to
assist with no light and tight seal requirements that assist with FDA compliance for food and pharmaceutical products.
RAIN DAM HEADER:
Tubular steel and fiberglass construction with black fabric Perma Pleats that eliminates light transmission into the dock area. The Rain Dam header effectively diverts rain off to the sides of the trailer. Galvanized steel frame gussets support the head frame so the foam side frames can move independently with the trailers.
Side curtains are made from the same fabric as a head curtain with fiberglass stiffeners sewn in. Extra wear areas on the bottom of curtains at critical truck contact points. Side curtain can be easily replaced.
PERMA GAP HOOK SEALS:
Perma Gap Hooks on the side curtains reduce air infiltration around the trailer door hinge gaps that can be equal up to an 18” x 18” hole in the building wall at each dock!
YELLOW GUIDE PATCHES:
18 oz. yellow vinyl, that is 10 ft. on center so drivers can easily see them all the way back into the dock position.
BOTTOM DRAFT CUSHIONS:
Designed for an improved seal at the bottom of the shelter behind the side curtains. Independent of the side curtains for an easy and economical replacement. Hi-Visibility “NO STEP” printed on draft cushions for dock operator safety.
Foam filled side frames, high density, full memory 55 lbs. foam with 2” x 6” or 8” wide pressure treated backboards.
Option: 16 gauge steel backing available.
DECLINE OR INCLINE:
Tapered dock shelter projections are available to accommodate an inclined or declined approach
