Inflatable Dock Shelters

For temperature-controlled operations

Our Inflatable Dock Shelters

Our inflatable dock shelters provide an airtight seal between the loading bay and the vehicle and are best suited to temperature controlled operations where protection against heat loss, draughts and cold air is required. Energy costs can also be minimised by reducing heat loss from the building by maintaining the internal temperature of the warehouse.

The inflatable head and side bags are stored when deflated behind high-visibility, side and head curtains, to ensure there is no damage when the vehicle is docked and because of the unique way in which the inflatable cushions work it is suitable for a range of vehicles.

Technical Information

The frame that projects from the building is manufactured from 40mm thick insulated steel panels or galvanised steel frame clad with HP 200 plastisol sheeting. The shelters can be coated in many standard colours to suit the individual requirements of the end user. Inflatable dock shelters can be mounted at the dock level height or can be installed down to ground. The inflatable shelters are suitable for trailers that vary in height from 3600mm to 5100mm.
