Worn down or broken loading dock seals pose a number of risks to the energy efficiency, security and safety of your warehouse.
A worn down loading dock seal doesn’t provide the necessary insulation between the truck and loading dock. These air gaps allow cold or hot air to slip through the seal pads and enter your facility causing uncomfortable working temperatures and increased heating and cooling costs.
If trucks regularly stay at your loading dock overnight, even small gaps between the truck and loading bay may allow someone to enter your facility. Even if you have a loading dock seal in place, security can still be a concern. Worn down or broken seals can create vulnerable gaps between the trucks and your loading bay. This gap makes your business vulnerable to theft and property damage.
