At Euroseal, we stock high levels of varying shelter material, which allows us to offer short lead times and non-standard sizes.
The shelter frame is constructed from electro-galvanised steel hollow section with aluminium angle curtain flashings. The front and rear side frames are joined by cantilever arms of the same steel section, which are pivoted at each end to allow for retraction in the event of accidental vehicle impact.
The roof and side frames are covered in a 610gsm heavy duty PVC fabric for a waterproof and tear-resistant finish. The top and side face curtains are made from a 3500gsm PVC with double insert nylon reinforcement and high visibility guide stripes to the side curtains to aid vehicle alignment. The roof of the shelter is also sloped to allow any water to run off to each side and not the rear or front.
The retractable dock shelter is also used on ambient heated or part heated facilities, as it maintains an optimal seal that reduces energy consumption, maintains hygiene, as well as protecting goods and loading bay personnel from external weather conditions.
