Akron Loading Dock Seals
ENERGY GUARD™ provides a superior perimeter seal along the sides and rear of your dock leveler and blocks dirt, debris, insects and most importantly prevents energy loss. The innovative design closes off the gaps between the dock leveler and concrete pit walls typically missed by traditional weather seal or under-leveler seals attached to the front of the dock leveler. ENERGY GUARD prevents the mass flow of air, minimizing the transfer of heat and energy into and out of the facility.
Guard Against Energy Loss At Your Loading Dock
- Factory Installed: ENERGY GUARD is factory installed on new equipment orders. No field installation necessary.
- Simple and Effective Design: No parts or assemblies installed under the dock leveler or on the pit floor.
- Long-term Durability: No fabric exposed to the face of the loading dock wall which is easily torn and damaged by trailers and debris.
- Expanded Sealing Range: Effective perimeter seal (sides and back) up to 9″ above dock level.
- No Maintenance Required: Seal assemblies rotate during operation rather than scrape the pit wall – no scheduled maintenance
- Easy Pit Access: Unrestricted access to pit for cleaning and dock leveler inspection. No curtains or fabric blocking access to the dock leveler and pit.
- Primary Seal Assemblies positioned horizontally on both sides of the dock leveler to seal while the leveler is in the stored position or below dock level. Seal is made of triangular shaped open cell foam covered in reinforced black vinyl and attached using a 1″ aluminum retaining bar.
- Triangular Shaped Seal & Pocket Design ensures longer product life by allowing the seals to pivot with the motion of the dock leveler during above and below dock operation versus scraping the concrete pit walls.
- Secondary Seal Assemblies have identical construction as the primary assemblies but are positioned at a downward angle in order to maintain the seal while the dock leveler is operating up to 9″ above dock level.
- Rear Hinge Seal Assembly is constructed of durable 2-Ply material that is die cut to fit around the rear hinges of the dock leveler and capable of flexing during operation in order to block air flow at the rear of the dock leveler.
- Vertical Seal Assemblies close off any gaps that exist between the primary and secondary assemblies whether the dock leveler is stored or in operation above or below dock level.
- Brush Seal Assembly provides an additional layer of protection against infiltration of dust, dirt, insects or debris. The dense nylon brush is attached using an aluminum track for easy replacement.
- Brush Cup Seals are provided to restrict air flow through operating openings in the dock leveler deck.
