Dock Shelters and Seals

Dock Shelters and Dock Seals - Well-protected on all sides

Hörmann dock shelters and dock seals protect loaded goods from adverse weather conditions and also save energy costs by minimising heat loss. In addition to this, they prevent draughts that could result in worker absences due to illness. When combined with a dock leveller, dock shelters and seals mean that complex canopies and ramp assemblies are not required.

Hörmann flap shelters fit all lorry sizes and can thus be used universally. High-quality top and side flaps, mounted on a galvanised, compressible frame, result in a stable and tear-resistant construction. Flaps and frame parts are manufactured as easy-to-assemble individual elements that can be screwed together. This also makes replacements simple and inexpensive. Inflatable dock seals and cushion dock seals for special applications complete the comprehensive programme.

Good reasons to try Hörmann Loading Technology

Robust dock levellers

Sustainability and quality go hand in hand. Dock levellers have to withstand the rough day-to-day loading environment. For this reason, all components are manufactured using high-quality materials. The design of all dock levellers corresponds to EN 1398 and, with regard to loading capacity, is dimensioned generously. Particularly sturdy flat anchors, ventilation slots in the edge bracket and adjustment angles to screw ensure reliable fixing in the building structure, one of the most important prerequisites for a long service life

Energy-efficient loading houses

The dock leveller is fit directly in front of the building with a loading house, allowing the building opening to be sealed efficiently with an industrial door. As early as the quotation phase, we are able to provide model statistics defining the maximum wind and snow loads for Hörmann loading houses.
Any unevenness in the door can easily be compensated for using adjustable feet.

Flexible dock seals and shelters

Dock seals and shelters are particularly efficient when they are optimally adapted to the docking vehicles and the loading situation. This requires a wide range of flexible solutions.Robust push-in flap dock shelters with different frame constructions prevent them from being damaged during docking.Inflatable dock seals adjust to different vehicle dimensions. Roll-up flaps compensate for even larger differences in vehicle heights. Dock seals and shelters with telescopic link arms or rising roof constructions are recommended to compensate for vehicle movements or when placing interchangeable containers.

Compatible control systems

From development to production, all Hörmann door and dock leveller controls come from the same source, making them optimally matched to each other. As a result, you benefit from a uniform operating concept with standardised housing sizes and the same cable sets for dock levellers and door controls. Another advantage: If the dock leveller control is placed beneath the door control, both controls can be combined into a single compact uni
