Foam Dock Seal
A foam dock seal is a loading dock solution to line the edges of a loading dock door. They are designed to seal the gap between the dock door opening and the truck trailer, protecting both workers and merchandise from the elements while the trailer is being loaded or unloaded. Our three-sided seal is the leading cost effective means to seal a loading dock door opening.
Vehicle Restraints and Dock Lock Safety Systems
Vehicle restraints and dock lock safety systems are a key component of efficient and safe modern loading docks for both merchandise and employees. Vehicle restraints lock the trailer into position at the loading dock. The vehicle restraint systems incorporate an integrated system of signal lights inside on the vehicle restraint control panel and outside on the facility wall. This system communicates the loading and restraint status to dock attendants as well as to truck drivers, greatly reducing human error resulting in accidental damage to merchandise and employees alike.
