BUTT Inflatable Door Shelters
The inflatable dock seals from BUTT combine an optimum seal with universal application opportunities. The inflatable side and top cushion renders the cargo opening almost airtight. As a result, this model is excellent for cold storage warehouses and air-conditioned storage rooms. Summer heat, winter cold, drafts, dust and insects haven’t the slightest chance to penetrate into the warehouse. The result is significant energy savings and less downtime due to illness of warehouse personnel.
But there are even more benefits. The inflatable top and side cushions not only ensure an optimal seal, but the cushions automatically adapted to the dimensions of the lorry up to a maximum of 1,250 mm in height and 800 mm in width. As a result, lorries with varying dimensions can be effectively sealed on the loading dock. These advantages make this dock seal a good investment.
The materials used are of high quality and extremely durable. The inflatable cushions are made from high quality Cordura ®. Cordura ® has many positive features such as high tear resistance, colour fastness and resistance to moisture and mould. The frame is extremely robust and is made of 40 mm ISO panels. The standard colour of the frame is light grey.
Type 800 is deliverable as a Ramp Level seal or a Ground Level seal. The Ramp Level models will be fitted to the docking stations at roughly the same levels of the warehouse floor and lorry bed. The Ground Level models are used at ground level loading.
Since the cushions in their resting position (not inflated) are retracted behind the front plane of the dock shelter, the lorry driver has a perfect view of the loading dock when docking. This is a favourable characteristic that applies to the entire series. Once the lorry is on the dock shelter, the cushions are inflated within 15 seconds achieving a perfect seal above and on the sides of the trailer. A nice side effect is that the cushions cannot reach the area of the loading opening, as is often the case with Plane Dock Seals. This results in optimal accessibility of the cargo bay with maximum working space on the ramp. The models come with integrated inflatable sub-cushions as standard equipment. As a result, the last opening underneath on the back side of the cushion is sealed.
