OPERATION

Dock shelters can significantly improve the energy efficiency and environment control of buildings, reducing costs.  They provide an effective barrier against the elements, keeping loading docks safe and efficient.

Dock shelters provide a positive seal between internal and external environments.  They prevent the passage of dust, insects, exhaust fumes and other airborne particulate matter while the loading dock is in use.

STRUCTURAL
