What Is A Dock Seal?

Think of loading dock seals similarly to a cork in a wine bottle. Those corks prevent air from circulating into the bottle. Loading dock seals are a critical component in protecting your building, shipments, and vehicles. The seal provides a barrier between your loading dock and the transportation trucks. Docks seals have help business owners maintain a more stable temperature. Additionally, the seals provide an added layer of protection by keeping bugs and poor weather conditions out of your building. Dock seals are particularly useful if you are working with sensitive shipments, such as food or temperature-dependent loads.
