  • How thick should my dock seal be?
    Your dock seal depth is determined by the slope of your approach and the dock bumper thickness. level approaches typically have 4.5" thick dock bumpers and a 9"-10" thick seal. For each degree of slope we add or reduce an inch of projection depending on whether the slope is an incline or decline.  back to top

  • what dock seal do I need?
    Loading docks are not all the same bumper projection, dock height, approach, door opening size, wall construction, access required to the rear of the trailer, trailer sizes being service as well as several other questions are key factors when designing a dock. For this reason there is no simple answer to this question. On our site there are several tools to help. You can call us during business hours, fill out an RFQ, or submit the dock seal survey on the dock seal page and we will help you with a dock seal fit to match your needs.  back to top

  • why is the dock seal top head pad getting damaged?
    If your top pad is receiving more damage than other parts of your seal there are several reasons it could be happening. The most common reason for this is a sloped approach. When the dock slopes down and the dock bumpers are not thick enough the truck will hit the wall or over compress the top of the seal causing it to wear out early. The way to avoid this situation is a wedged seal with adequate dock bumper projection.   back to top

  • Dock Seal Vs. Truck Shelter?
    A dock seal is traditionally designed to enclose a loading dock reducing its width to an optimal 7'6", while a truck shelter is designed to allow full access to the trailer without restricting the available space around the door. Truck shelters typically afford service to a wider range of trucks than a dock seal as well, due to the nature of the seal. When a vehicle docks with a shelter the curtains with spring steel stays slide along the side of the vehicle rather than compress like a dock seal.   back to top
