A dock shelter is a structure with a curtain style cover designed to protect the space between a truck trailer and the building from the elements. Dock shelters are typically installed when dock seals aren’t an effective solution or a building must accommodate a variety of truck styles and sizes.

Dock shelters work because they allow trucks of various sizes and shapes to back into the curtain perimeter. This creates a vestibule around the truck trailer and accommodates a variety of trucks while providing basic protection from the elements.

Nordock FF FoamFrame™ Series Dock Shelters
Nordock's FoamFrame series provides sided shelters with superior sealing capability. The FoamFrame series features memory core foam sides that eliminate damage due to off center loading. The vertical curtains, with stiffeners, provide a maximum weathertight seal, a safer dock environment and unrestricted access to the trailer. The head curtain contains stiffeners, protective corner reinforcement pleats and wind retention straps.

Standard bottom corner pads reduce energy loss between the curtain and the side members. The rigid head frame is sloped for water drainage and topped with a translucent cover to allow in natural light. Polyurethane foam side frames with double stitched velcro attached vertical curtains containing fiberglass stiffeners provide a maximum weather-tight seal. 99% memory foam core extends the useful life while high tear abrasion fabric ensures durability. The FoamFrame features double stitched seams with high strength thread and pressure treated superior grade lumber backing with galvanized steel mounting hardware. The raked header with translucent fiberglass allows for water drainage & natural light.
