Dock shel­ters are the es­sen­tial cov­er­ing re­quired to pro­tect tem­per­a­ture sen­si­tive cargo from harsh en­vi­ron­ment while load­ing and un­load­ing goods in cargo trucks.

Sen­si­tive cargo needs to be pro­tected from ex­ter­nal en­vi­ron­ment while load­ing and un­load­ing in cargo trucks. This pro­tec­tion is best of­fered by dock shel­ters. Dock shel­ters are in­stalled mainly to seal the gap be­tween the build­ing and the ve­hi­cle in such a way that when the sec­tional over­head door is opened, goods and per­son­nel are pro­tected against the harsh weather con­di­tions out­side. Dock shel­ters pro­vide a seal be­tween the in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal en­vi­ron­ments, thus as­sist­ing in the re­duc­tion of en­ergy con­sump­tion. The sav­ings in en­ergy costs are con­sid­er­able. In­dia’s No.1 en­trance au­to­ma­tion and load­ing bay equip­ment com­pany, Gandhi Au­toma­tions of­fers a com­plete range of dock shel­ters avail­able for every re­quire­ment and en­vi­ron­ment.

Re­tractable dock shel­ters: The re­tractable PVC front pan­els dock shelter is com­monly used. With its sim­plic­ity and ef­fi­ciency, it grants for a con­stant pay­back of the in­vest­ment. These are avail­able for dock level in­stal­la­tion or for ground level in­stal­la­tion for the pro­tec­tion of doors without dock. The front pan­els are made of high re­sis­tance black PVC re­in­forced with a dou­ble weav­ing of polyester that works like a spring in or­der to seal the ve­hi­cles of dif­fer­ent shapes. The flaps are flex­i­ble and have very high wear and tear re­sis­tance. De­signed to re­tract un­der the shock of any pos­si­ble wrong ma­neu­vers of the dock­ing ve­hi­cles and ex­tend when the ve­hi­cle drives away.

Cush­ion dock shel­ters: Due to its high in­su­la­tion fac­tor, the cush­ion dock shelter is the ideal so­lu­tion for con­trolled tem­per­a­tures. The three cush­ions are made of elas­tic polyurethane foam, cov­ered with PVC coated polyester fab­ric, sup­port­ing the ve­hi­cle pres­sures and per­fectly seal­ing the three sides, in­clud­ing the space be­tween opened rear doors and sides of the ve­hi­cle. The two ver­ti­cal cush­ions have con­tin­u­ous over­lapped anti-fric­tion limpets al­low­ing for the up and down heavy fric­tion of the ve­hi­cle on its sus­pen­sions, dur­ing the load­ing. It is avail­able with fixed or ad­justable hor­i­zon­tal top cush­ion, ad­justable to the dif­fer­ent ve­hi­cle heights.

In­flat­able dock shel­ters: The in­flat­able dock shelter is the best so­lu­tion for in­su­lat­ing and im­prov­ing the work­ing en­vi­ron­ment. It can be rapidly in­flated with a fan and it cre­ates a per­fect in­su­la­tion be­tween the ve­hi­cle and the load­ing bay, shel­ter­ing from cold, rain, wind also dust and hu­mid­ity. The in­flat­able dock shelter is made of polyester fab­ric, PVC cov­ered, a ma­te­rial re­sist­ing to hot tem­per­a­tures and bad weather con­di­tions. In­flat­able dock shel­ters pro­vide the most ver­sa­tile seal avail­able to ser­vice the widest va­ri­ety of truck and trailer con­fig­u­ra­tions. Con­trary to other types of dock shel­ters the ve­hi­cle does not push to­wards the shelter in­stead the shelter is in­flated around the ve­hi­cle.
