If you’re in the market for dock seals, Raymond West provides a wide range of choices for almost any application.

Dock seals can help you sustain a controlled atmosphere on your loading dock and safeguard shipments from weather as they move in and out of your facility.

Do you really need to seal your docks? Consider the following advantages:

  • Energy savings: Dock seals can quickly pay for themselves by lowering your building’s climate control costs.
  • Safety: rain soaked concrete is slick and hazardous. Defending your dock against the elements makes it a much safer place to be.
  • Morale: no one appreciates working in extreme weather like snow or rain. The productivity, morale and comfort of your team will improve when your doors are sealed.
  • Cargo protection: Seals keep rats, mice and other pests out of your warehouse and protect it from harsh weather.
  • Security: Seals assist with keeping thieves, vandals and vagrants out of your warehouse.
  • Temporary storage: docked trailers can serve as short term, secure, environmentally-controlled extensions of your building.

Dock Seals Come in a Variety of Different Designs

Dock seals are typically fabric-wrapped foam panels that attach to the exterior side of your dock door frames. When a trailer pushes against it, the foam gets squeezed, creating a secure seal that keeps the weather out. Seals are generally applied to smaller door openings, and they can mitigate air flow on your loading dock with about 90% efficiency.

Fixed Head Dock Seal: A foam-filled side and head pad are utilized in this kind of dock seal. For applications with unvarying truck heights and standard dock requirements, it's one of the most common and efficient dock seals.

Head Curtain Dock Seal: This style of dock seal is put to use when your warehouse has a lot of variation in truck heights and door heights. It has foam side pads wrapped in fabric. A stationary or adjustable fabric head curtain sized for specific trailer types is common for the seal. Optional foam-filled curtains can provide a tighter seal and improve its energy efficiency.

Adjustable Head Pad: Frequently seen in the past, this category of seal is no longer in demand due to the difficulty of maintaining the moving parts. This seal, similar in function to a "Head Curtain," is best used for variable truck heights and door dimensions.

L-Shaped Dock Seal: This seal has “L” shaped side pads, as the name implies. The seal's shape and increased protrusion make it perfect for bigger door openings. The configuration and protrusion are engineered to seal the trailer's sides rather than the back. This allows for easier entry and exit to the trailer's opening. A “curtain” or “fixed head” header may be utilized on this kind of seal.

Inflatable Seal: When a truck is backed up to the bay door, the inflatable seal enlarges with the assistance of a blower. These seals are typically used in conjunction with an interlock system with the leveler and door, and will only inflate once the leveler and door are in the correct positions. Inflatable seals come in a variety of sizes and shapes.
