Snap Back & Ultra Dock Shelter

Snap Back & Ultra Dock Shelters

Safetech Dock Shelters and Seals provide a most effective weather-protected passage-way between the building and the vehicle, keeping costly conditioned air inside and unwanted conditions out.

Many other styles of seals and shelters are available in addition to the selection shown. Please consult Safetech for the best style to suit your application.

The shelter and seal systems offer the following benefits:

  • Reduced heating and cooling costs resulting in short term payback
  • Protects products against damaging elements and pilfering
  • Secure environment controlled extension of the facility
  • Keeps weather out whilst improving dock environment and safety.

The Dock Shelter systems also have the added benefits of:

  • Eliminating excessive loading on the building wall structure
  • Adapting to an extensive range of vehicle heights and widths.

Snap Back Dock Shelter - S-3200

The Safetech Snap Back Dock Shelter S-3200 is designed to service a wide variety of trailer sizes and types, while providing full trailer access during the loading process. A gravity-biased, flexible frame yields to misguided trailers, preventing costly building and shelter damage. It also provides a cost effective and energy saving solution for a number of different applications where temperature control is not critical.

S-3200 Features

  • Roll-formed galvanised steel framing (5-year limited warranty).
  • White UV-resistant vinyl-coated fabric allows natural light to enter the dock area.
  • Overlapping layers of fabric provide more wear resistance against the sharp corners of the trailer, extending the life of the shelter
  • Flexible fibreglass stays ensure that head and side curtain pressure is maintained on the truck body while compressible neoprene cords conform to the vehicle’s irregular perimeter.
  • High-visibility guide stripes assist drivers with proper positioning of the trailer.

Construction / Frame

Compression is not required to form a seal, pressure on the exterior of the building is eliminated. The retractable frame prevents any damage in the event of vehicle misalignment.

How It Works

As the trailer approaches the loading dock, if misalignment occurs, the Snap Back frame moves upwards and back preventing costly damage to the building and shelter.
Once loading/unloading is completed a gravity biased design returns the shelter to its original position ready for the next operation.

Ultra Dock Shelter - S-2200

The Safetech Ultra Dock Shelter creates a tight seal between the building wall and the back of the truck. It effectively keeps the outside elements out of the warehouse, providing energy savings and added comfort for your employees. The compressible foam side frame prevents damage from off-centred trailers.
