Scotlifts Inflatable dock shelters offer optimum protection from the outside elements keeping the workforce and goods protected and insulated, making the DR400 the best choice for cold storage or other ambient applications.
Once the vehicle is docked the shelter is switched on activating the fan and the head and side bags inflate against the vehicle creating a good all round seal. Loading or unloading of the vehicle can then take place with little risk of the goods or operatives being affected by the outside environment. The standard size is 3600mm wide x 3700mm high x 900mm projection, however this can be changed depending on the vehicles using the bay.
Dockright airbags are manufactured from 1000d cordura type material which is a hardwearing, woven nylon coated fabric with a high tear resistance. The fan used is normally a three phase centrifugal fan that fully inflates the bags between 10-20 seconds. Once the fan is deactivated the bags will return to their deflated position behind the storage curtains by a counter balance weight system.The standard DR400 has fully insulated side and head panels, however if temperature control is not key but your customer would still like the benefits of the inflatable shelter we manufacture the DR400B which has sides constructed of box section and a PVC type material.
