Dock Shelters

Product details

Static dock shelters provide good all round protection from the outside elements keeping the workforce and goods protected. The seal is created by the side and head curtains moulding around the top and side of the vehicle as it reverses into the loading bay to meet the dock bumpers. The DR200 is a robust shelter that is well suited to high wind areas. The standard size of a DR200 is 3500mm wide x 3500mm high x 600mm projection but can be made to suit varying vehicle heights. The standard head curtain size is 1200mm and the side curtains are 700mm, although this can be changed to suit. The roof of the shelter is sloped to allow any water to run off.Static shelters are constructed from electro-plated box section and covered in a PVC type material. The curtains are made from heavy duty material with high visibility guide stripes to the side curtains.

Retractable dock shelters provide good all round protection from the outside elements keeping the workforce and goods protected. The seal is created by the side and head curtains moulding around the top and side of the vehicle as it reverses into the loading bay to meet the dock bumpers. In the event of a misaligned vehicle impacting the front of the shelter, the structure will retract preventing any potential damage to the bay. Once the vehicle leaves the bay the shelter will return to its original position.

The standard size of a DR300 is 3500mm wide x 3500mm high x 600mm projection but can be made to suit varying vehicle heights.

Inflatable dock shelters offer optimum protection from the outside elements keeping the workforce and goods protected and insulated, making the SDSI400 the best choice for cold storage or other ambient applications. Once the vehicle is docked the shelter is switched on activating the fan and the head and side bags inflate against the vehicle creating a good all round seal. Loading or unloading of the vehicle can then take place with little risk of the goods or operatives being affected by the outside environment. The standard size is 3600mm wide x 3700mm high x 900mm projection, however this can be changed depending on the vehicles using the bay. Dockright airbags are manufactured from 1000d cordura type material which is a hardwearing, woven nylon coated fabric with a high tear resistance. The fan used is normally a three phase centrifugal fan that fully inflates the bags between 10-20 seconds. Once the fan is deactivated the bags will return to their deflated position behind the storage curtains by a counter balance weight system.The standard SDSI400 has fully insulated side and head panels, however if temperature control is not key but your customer would still like the benefits of the inflatable shelter we manufacture the SDSI400B which has sides constructed of box section and a PVC type material.

Options

  • SDSI00B non-insulated version
  • Various sizes
  • Ground level
  • Other colours available
  • Your logo at no extra cost
  • Single phase fan

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Investing in any form of secure door system requires a relative outlay and prior to purchase it’s important to feel fully confident in the company you choose.

    We have compiled a list of some questions that are worthwhile asking when researching and requesting quotes.

    1

    Do your secure doors meet the relevant UK health and safety standards?

    Whether buying power-assisted gates or doors, these MUST be fully compliant with UK law. It’s important to understand and even request evidence to prove that everything is above board. Once purchased, companies then become responsible for maintenance whilst ensuring the safety of use based on specific circumstances.

    2

    Does your company have public liability insurance in place?

    This may seem like a question you’d never ask but it’s certainly an important one. Without insurance, should something go wrong during installation, the customer could be landed with a costly and unexpected bill. This seemingly bold question should never be a problem, especially to a business who’s covered.

    3

    Do secure doors come with a warranty?

    Again, we’ll highlight the fact that secure doors are an investment. It’s important to know they are going to be under warranty, even if it’s only for a short time. When using a reputable company the topic of warranties will be discussed in the first instance. If not, don’t be afraid to ask or request paperwork.

    4

    Do you provide support after purchase?

    The worst thing any company can do is vanish once the deal is done. Having mentioned health and safety above, it’s intrinsic to to understand that high levels of safety must continue. Again, a company with a decent reputation will discuss this initially whilst recommending maintenance services. Make sure you’re fully aware of your responsibilities as a company owner with regards to secure door systems.

    5

    What times of the day can we get in touch?

    As not every company works the traditional 9am – 5pm shift pattern, you’ll need to be fully versed with applicable times to call, especially in the case of an emergency. Ideally, a secure door provider will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When this is the case, should you experience a breakdown, help will be on its way sooner resulting in less downtime and revenue loss.
