Different sizes of loading/unloading openings of warehouses and the docked vehicles result in gaps that need to be effectively sealed. Dock shelters protect your goods against the adverse effects of wind and rain. An integrated rain channel allows lateral drainage of the rain water. Energy efficiency is one of the positive side effects that can be reached thanks to this type of dock shelter. It is delivered pre-mounted in three parts and can easily be installed at the façade. This particular design guarantees considerable cost and time efficiency.
The PMN alcove-mounted dock shelter is installed directly in the recess of the building so as not to disturb the continuity of the façade and improve the overall appearance. This type of dock shelter is made of aluminium sections mounted to both sides and to the top edge of the recess. The shelter can be set in concrete, steel or installed using a special fixing system. The high-durability, 3 mm thick curtains are made of 2-layer, PVC-coated fabrics. Warning stripes on the front section of the dock shelter facilitate the vehicle dock-in procedure. This type of dock shelters is delivered in three pre-mounted parts and can easily be installed at the façade. This particular design guarantees considerable cost and time efficiency.
The mechanical dock shelter PMSK is a new product of PROMStahl’s wide product range. It mainly consists of an height-adaptable roof part and two side parts. These side parts are made of a special foam material. If a vehicle does not dock in perfectly, these foam side parts are compressed and then move to the sides. Therefore, the dock shelter is not damaged even if the truck does not reverse centrically. Thanks to the special design of the height-adaptable roof part, damage is avoided even for very high trucks like jumbo vehicles or demountable containers. If the vehicle is lifted, the roof automatically follows this upward movement. The roof returns to its original position after the vehicle has left the docking station.
The PWI inflatable dock shelter combines optimal sealing characteristics with a wide range of applications. Inflatable side and top cushions seal the loading opening providing almost airtight connection. That’s why these dock shelters are ideal for cold stores and air-conditioned warehouses. Summer heat, winter cold, draught, dust and insects are kept out of the warehousing facility. This type of dock shelter is delivered in three pre-mounted parts and can thus easily be installed at the façade. This particular design guarantees considerable cost and time efficiency.
The PROMStahl PMK dock seal is designed for loading and unloading truck fleets consisting of vehicles almost identical in width and height. It guarantees perfect protection from draught, rain and wind and thus prevents energy losses.
The dock seal is equipped with a horizontal cushion and two vertical cushions consisting of foam material completely covered by a PVC-coated high-resistance Trevira fabric. The dimensions of the dock seals are defined depending on the individual characteristics of your loading bay and the vehicle types to be loaded/unloaded i.e. your PROMStahl dock seal is always tailor-made.
The PMK dock shelter is pre-mounted and consists of just three parts; therefore, it can be mounted to the façade very fast and easily. Considerable savings regarding time and money are the decisive advantages of this design.
