Polymatic’s dock seals and shelters seal your loading area from outside elements, defending your facility and shipments while maximizing efficiency.
Dock seals and shelters are critical components in any warehouse loading dock. They safeguard shipments, improve energy efficiency, boost productivity, and enhance environmental control.
Properly installed dock seals and shelters protect the loading area from outside elements like wind, rain, snow, dust, and insects. Polymatic’s dock solutions safeguard shipments by providing a sealed, weatherproof environment for loading and unloading.
Our dock shelters completely enclose the rear of trucks at the dock. Side pads and head pads compress against the truck to create a tight seal. This prevents outside air, moisture, contaminants, and pests from entering the loading area.
Our inflatable dock seals use pressurized side and head pads to provide a flexible seal that adjusts to a range of truck sizes. Foam dock seals have durable pads that compress when trucks back in.
Open docks allow huge amounts of unconditioned outside air to enter warehouses. This strains HVAC systems trying to maintain indoor temperatures. Proper dock seals and shelters from Polymatic Solutions seal out external air, reducing the energy needed for heating and cooling.
Uncontrolled air circulation reduces worker productivity and comfort. Consistent indoor temperatures and protection from drafts allow staff to work more steadily and efficiently.
Polymatic’s dock solutions protect goods from moisture, dirt, and pests—preventing damage and delays that hamper operations. Streamlined loading and unloading keeps inventory and shipments moving.
Controlling warehouse environments is key for industries dealing with sensitive products. Polymatic’s dock enclosures maintain product integrity by regulating exposure, preventing contamination, and shielding inventory.
Our equipment also prevents the loss of energy-controlled air in refrigerated and heated warehouses. This allows optimal storage conditions for perishables, chemicals, and more.

Polymatic offers standard and custom dock seals for a wide range of warehouse needs. Size and design factors provide optimal sealing and accessibility:
- Adjustable widths accommodate varying truck sizes
- Durable fabrics with coated surfaces shed moisture and resist wear
- Pressurized pads inflate to differing truck heights and compress tightly
- Modular pads permit interior access without full deflation
Adjustable dock seals provide maximum sealing flexibility. Pressurized head pads and side pads mount on sliding parallel arms, allowing the pads to self-adjust vertically and horizontally to fit the vehicle.
Inflatable seals use pressurized air to deploy pads against trucks. Head curtains remain inflated for full access to trailers, while side pads can deflate inward for easy personnel or material handling.
Polymatic provides dock shelters engineered for reliable operation and easy maintenance:
- Galvanized steel support frames withstand corrosion
- Tough fabric and foam panels endure heavy use
- Modular components simplify servicing needs
Rigid shelters have permanent galvanized frames that keep panels stationary. Foam pads compress against the trailer for a tight fit during loading.
Advanced units feature retractable head frames and pads that lift and lower for easy access. Side pads stay fixed to compress against trailers when the overhead section is extended.
Polymatic also offers fully customized dock enclosures for your facility’s dimensions and operational needs.
Our experts collaborate with you to address unique layouts, product handling needs, traffic volumes, and more.
