Compression Dock Seal

Compression Dock Seals
Where a standard size truck is being serviced in a loading dock, compression seals are the most effective and economical solution.  These seals are made with foam or cushions wrapped with heavy-duty vinyl and are installed around the opening of the dock door. When the truck reverses backwards into the dock, it presses against the seal, thereby creating a seal against the pads and preventing airflow in and out of the dock.
Types and Models Available
CDS1000 Series - Fixed Head Pad
Compression dock seals with foam-filled head and side pads provide the most effective seal and the most economical solution for 8′ to 9′ high doors.

CHDS 1000 Series
Compression dock seals with a curtain style head member and foam filled side pads provide an effective seal and the most economical solution for door sizes 10' and higher.
CHDS 1000
