Retractable Dock Shelters

Loading Bay 1

Typical Application

Retractable dock shelters provide good all round protection from the outside elements keeping the workforce and goods protected. The seal is created by the side and head curtains moulding around the top and side of the vehicle as it reverses ino the loading bay to meet the dock bumpers.

In the event of of a misaligned vehicle impacting the front of the shelter, the shelter will retract preventing any potential damage to the bay. Once the vehicle leaves the bay the shelter will return to its original position.


  • Galvanised pantograph steel frame (should a vehice impact the shelter it recoils dampering the force and avoiding possible damage)
  • 3 mm thick PVC/Polyester front and side curtains
  • Strong wind and tear resistance
  • Verticle guide markings for safe operation
  • Adjustable head option
