Scotlifts 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 into the loading bay to meet the dock bumpers. In the event of a misaligned vehicle impacting the front of the shelter, the structure will retract preventing any potential damage to the bay. Once the vehicle leaves the bay the shelter will return to its original position.
The standard size of a DR300 is 3500mm wide x 3500mm high x 600mm projection but can be made to suit varying vehicle heights. The standard head curtain size is 1200mm and the side curtains are 700mm, although this can be changed to suit. The roof of the shelter is sloped to allow any water to run off.
Retractable shelters are constructed from electro-plated box section and covered in a PVC type material and are made with cantilever arms. The curtains are made from heavy duty material with high visibility guide stripes to the side curtains.
