The top of the range shelter is a durable pneumatically operated unit that inflates and deflates by push button and is ideal for refrigerated sites. Automated units are commonly controlled with dock doors and dock levellers.
A seal can also be added, to improve energy savings and thermal insulation between the building and the dock. There are different types of seals:
Improve working conditions and the operations of handling goods by providing considerable thermal insulation and hygiene.
