The loading dock is one of the busiest areas in a warehouse. A small gap between a parked trailer at the loading dock will result in to increase in energy cost and expenses of the business.
The air conditioning and heating escape between the gaps and allows the outside elements like rain, dust, wind, and bugs into your facility. This will cause product damage, problems in the business facilities, and with employee safety.
The loading dock area must be productive and safe for workers. To achieve this, business facilities must have a dock seal or shelter in their loading system. 
What is the difference between a dock seal and a dock shelter?
Dock seals offer a tight seal and consist of foam pads. It forms a seal in the trailer when the vehicle compresses the foam pads as it parked against the dock bumpers. This is ideal for minor variations of trailer size and style.
Dock shelters serve as enclosures and form a seal in the border of the trailer. It fits for larger openings of dock doors and various trailer heights.

Reasons why a dock seal and a dock shelter in Raleigh, NC must be installed in a loading dock, here are the following:
  • The loading dock has safer working conditions
Seals and shelters promote a safer working environment in the loading dock area. Rain is kept out and floors remain dry that helps prevent slip-and-fall injuries. 
The dock seal and shelter block the entry of bugs and pests into the warehouse creating a more comfortable working area. Also, they prevent the wind from getting in for the safety of workers who are loading or unloading in the trucks.
  • The loading dock has increased productivity
The installation of dock seals and shelters makes a loading dock a more efficient workplace and improves productivity. When the safety of employees is improved the loading or unloading of goods moves faster.
  • Loading dock doors increase their lifespan
Loading docks are the busiest areas in a business operation. The exterior parts of warehouse dock doors are exposed to the sun, wind, and rain. Exposure to environmental elements decreases their useful lifespan. Installing dock seals and shelters lessen the impact of these harmful elements and preserve the dock door.
