If you’re looking for dock seals, Raymond West provides a wide spectrum of choices to serve your needs.

Dock seals allow you to maintain a controlled atmosphere on your loading dock and shield products from weather as they exit and enter your warehouse.

Are dock seals really needed? Consider the following advantages:

  • Energy conservation: Dock seals can quickly pay for themselves by lowering your building’s climate control expenses.
  • Safety: wet concrete is slippery and dangerous. Protecting your dock from the elements makes it far more secure for your employees.
  • Employee well-being: nobody enjoys working in harsh conditions like rain or snow. The morale, productivity and comfort of your team will be enhanced when you add door seals.
  • Merchandise protection: Seals keep rats, mice and other pests out of your facility and protect it from harsh weather.
  • Building security: Seals assist with keeping unauthorized people out of your warehouse.
  • Short term storage: trailers can act as short term, secure, environmentally-controlled expansions your warehouse.

Dock Seals Come in a Variety of Different Designs

Dock seals are usually fabric-wrapped foam panels that are mounted on the exterior side of your loading dock door frames. When a trailer is backed up, the foam compresses, creating a tight seal that shields your warehouse from the outside climate. Seals are typically used on smaller door openings, and they can mitigate air flow on your dock with up to 90% efficiency.

Fixed Head Dock Seal: Foam side and head pads are applied in this type of dock seal. For applications with unvarying truck heights and standard dock parameters, it's among the most common and efficient dock seals.

Head Curtain Dock Seal: This kind of dock seal is put to use when your warehouse has a wide range of trailer 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. Foam-filled curtains, which are available as an option, can help to better seal the trailer and increase its energy efficiency.

Adjustable Head Pad: Once popular, this category of seal is no longer in demand due to advances in seal technology. This seal, similar in use to a "Head Curtain," is ideal for wide ranging trailer heights and door dimensions.

L-Shaped Dock Seal: This seal has “L” shaped side pads, as the name implies. The seal's configuration and increased overhang make it well suited for bigger door openings. The shape and extended overhang are intended to seal the trailer's sides rather than the back. This permits better access to the trailer's back end. A “curtain” or “fixed head” header may be employed on this category of seal.

Inflatable Seal: When a truck is backed up to the loading dock bay, the inflatable seal enlarges with the help of a blower. These seals are generally part of an interlock system with the door and/or dock leveler, and will inflate only when the door and leveler are in the proper positions. Inflatable seals come in a host of configurations and dimensions.
