Sector key

Our Inflatable Dock Seals can be used in the following sectors.

Standard Specification


1000 denier Condura fabric is sewn for the head and side bags. Condura is a very hard wearing, tear resistant waterproof material. It is manufactured from a woven nylon coated with tough polyurethane skin. A heavy duty two ply PVC to 3.5mm thick is used for the head storage curtain.

Head Seal

Mounted on a backboard complete with a counterbalance roller retraction system to return the deflated bag to the stored position behind the PVC storage curtain. The whole assembly is mounted under a 50mm thick insulated panel coated both sides with plastisol coated galvanised steel sheet, standard colour white. The roof is supported on a galvanised steel brackets at either end which are bolted back to the building.

Side Seals

Mounted on a lightweight galvanised steel profiles the side bags have an internal retraction system storing them flat against the building when deflated.

The side bags inflate straight out to seal the back of the vehicle giving minimal loading stresses to the building structure. The counter balance weight for the head seal runs vertically behind one of the side seals. A high visibility vehicle guide stripe is stitched to the lower front face of the side seals to aid the docking vehicle to locate centrally to the doorway.
