This Article focuses on dock shelters. There are various products available including Retractable Dock Shelters, Inflatable Dock Shelters and Dock Cushion Seals. When selecting the most appropriate solution it is important to review your application and identify a solution that will help you to eliminate gaps at the dock in the most effective way possible. There are pros and cons of each of the products.


We recommend contacting the Dock Technik team with your requirements who can review your loading dock and identify an effective solution.


The Dock Technik Retractable Dock Shelter is extremely robust and durable, with galvanized steel frame and cantilever arms it has been designed to compress in the event of accidental impact.

The front and head curtains are manufactured using nylon reinforced PVC with the option of a parking guide to aid vehicle alignment onto the loading bay utilising wheel alignment guides. The front and head curtain are flashed with aluminium and the roof and sides are completed in a heavy duty, waterproof PVC.

The Retractable Dock Shelter is very versatile and using our experience we can ensure it is tailored to maximise its qualities based on your fleet size and building design. The Dock Technik Retractable Dock Shelter is able to improve hygiene and energy efficiency through its seal whilst also shielding product and personnel from the elements.

The Dock Technik inflatable dock shelter has an insulated frame design with mounted airbags that inflate around the vehicle to make a tight and effective seal. When the motor is activated the three airbags inflate onto the sides and roof of the vehicle to help maintain internal climate whilst loading/unloading.

The inflatable airbags are manufactured using a tear resistant, nylon reinforced fabric and are inflated with a three-phase fan. Our fans are designed for high volume, low pressure airflow to ensure the airbag provides the best seal possible around the vehicle.

Our framework for the inflatable dock shelter is manufactured using food safe insulated panelling with a galvanised gallows bracket for additional support.

With the insulation properties of the inflatable dock shelter along with its impressive seal it is a great solution for cold stores and climate control facilities.

The Dock Technik dock cushion seals have a foam filled PVC case with timber backing. When the vehicle reverses onto the bay of the loading dock it impacts the seal and the internal foam compresses to form a seal around the vehicle. The external face of the seal is designed with wear pleats for added protection and a parking guide to aid vehicle alignment on the bay. Our cushion seal is best suited to a site with a dedicated fleet with the same size vehicle, but it can be supplied with an adjustable head cushion for different height vehicles.
