Functionality of dock pads
The quality and lightness of the materials allow safe and superior performances. Sizes and materials of the elements that constitute the cushion are specifically designed to ensure durability with intensive use, being resistant to wear and tear.
Furthermore, the softness of the cushions also prevent the vehicles to get damaged by either the side or the top wall, regardless of the truck height. Indeed, the shape and the colour of the product can be selected by the customer according to individual needs. A wide range of colour shades is available so that the end-user can choose the one that best matches the building to which it will be applied, preserving its style and design.
In addition, the dock shelter presents a set of frontal flaps that guarantees maximum protection and adherence to the vehicle.
Depending on the needs of each customer, it is also possible to choose either permanent or removable cushions; the latter type is perfect when working with trucks of different heights.
The trailer compresses into the foam pads when it backs in and comes to rest against the dock bumpers, forming a seal around three sides of the trailer. In addition, this type of structure also seals the spaces between the passage and the sides of the vehicle, providing maximum protection for people, goods and equipment.
