Dock shelter is mainly used in situations where an optimal sealing is required, and in which large differences in vehicle size apply. Furthermore, the dock shelter is well-suited to serve as a drivethrough shelter.Dock shelter front projection model consists of stable construction with an anodised and extruded aluminium front frame and a hot-galvanized steel rear frame. the solid and rigid construction provides an optimal strength during side loading, ensuring that the bottom sections do not deflect outwards. The frames are connected by means of hinged arms. these ensure that the dock shelter can retract in the event of inaccurate docking, to prevent damage to the dock shelter and vehicle. in the retracted position, the vehicle – at the location of the top curtain remains accessible for loading and unloading while using internal transportation means.
The front projection is closed by means of a continuous projection cover made from one single piece of material. as such any chinks between, the attachments at the dock shelter sides and topside can be prevented, meaning draught or leakage will not apply. the positioning and form (integrated drainage at the top side) of the continuous projection cover ensure optimal drainage. rainwater is drained off from the dock shelter side. this ensures that no water will enter the door opening during loading and unloading, as such goods and products will be protected. Due to the intensive working load of the curtain material, high quality of tear and wear resistance is applicable. the curtains can be deliveredin various models.
- Optimum aesthetic finish
- Robust flaps made of durable material
- Continuous projection cover prevents leakage
- Lateral drainage
- Stiffness in lateral load
