Dock shelters

By November 16, 2021December 16th, 2021No Comments



Giesse designs and builds isothermal dock shelters for loading bays that include all required components. Dock shelters are suitable structures for ensuring the safety of logistical activities between warehouses and vehicles. A dock leveller, an industrial door, and a dock shelter are common components of a loading point.


Dock shelter Characteristics

When the vehicle is moored at the platform for loading and unloading, the product offers suitable protection. The shelter is meant to alleviate the shock generated by erroneous moves due to the exceptional quality of the materials and the robust structure.

Among its attributes and capabilities, the dock shelter provides protection for products, which is a great benefit when dealing with delicate commodities that must not be subjected to temperature variations and must be effectively protected from atmospheric agents. Furthermore, by easing the handling of the items, the equipment safeguards the people involved in the loading and unloading processes.

The dock shelters have all been properly built so that the impact of the docking vehicle does not compromise the structural integrity of the structures and equipment.

The end-user can select between the hanging isothermal dock shelter and the ground-level isothermal dock shelter, which differ in placement.

Wall Dock® Dock Shelters with hanging frame

This style of dock shelter may be built inside the warehouse’s wall, exactly fitting the platform’s edges. It has a PVC flexible top curtain and hanging swinging bars and does not require resting on a foundation.


Dock On The Ground Level Ground Dock® Shelters

Because it is fastened to the wall but also sits on the ground, this sort of dock shelter needs a distinct installation. The synthetic rubber front flaps let the vehicle approach the building, while pantographs and wheels ensure flexibility throughout the docking procedure.

Both the hanging and ground-level frames are ideal for adequately sealing the loading point and providing thermal and acoustic insulation. Maximum safety is ensured by a signal system equipped with frontal flaps, whose visual signals (grey and yellow arrows) aid in vehicle manoeuvring.

Use of an isothermal dock shelter

The primary goal of the product is to make logistical operations easier. Because of its nature, it may be used in practically any industry:

To simplify logistic operations in the industrial sector, which is characterized by frequent transit of goods and resources, sturdy and lasting equipment is required.

Typically, the food industry deals with very delicate items. It is critical to seal the premises’ doorway and achieve optimal thermal insulation.

The commercial sector In the case of industries, regular loading and unloading procedures necessitate the use of the appropriate equipment.

Installation methods of dock shelters

Giesse dock shelters are made of galvanised steel. The material chosen is both strong and light. The material’s small weight enables quick and easy installation while also promoting long-term preservation, even under extreme weather conditions.

The side and top curtains are constructed of tear-resistant and scratch-resistant self-extinguishing PVC fabric. For optimal abrasion resistance, the PVC fabric is coated with specialised materials.

Swinging arms and wheels on the items increase the overall flexibility of the construction.

The sheet has a wind resistance rating of class two and a light system to help prevent mishaps.

The buyer can choose the size, shape, and colours that best suit his or her demands.
