The PWI Inflatable Dock Shelter combines optimum sealing efficiency with the flexibility of use. It has been designed to allow clients to maximise potenitial energy savings and who want to protect their goods against adverse weather conditions. The difference in size between the docking vehicle and the warehouse opening inevitably creates a gap and needs to be sealed. Inflatable cushions form a tight seal on the sides and top of the vehicle. This type of shelter is ideal for cold storage facilities and air-conditioned storage rooms. Using this type of shelter can result in significant energy savings, improvement of working and sanitary conditions, helping to increase staff productivity. In addition, unauthorized persons are not able to enter the warehouse unnoticed. Inflatable side and top cushions not only provide effective sealing around the vehicle, but also automatically adjust to the dimensions of the truck allowing an effective seal to be produced on different-sized vehicles.
The PWI combines high-quality materials with stringent and modern design demands. Inflatable cushions are made of durable PVC Codura, which is highly resistant to mechanical damage, moisture and mould problems. The frame is made of aluminum sections, encased with 40 mm thick sandwich panels making it robust and durable. These advantages make the PWI a good investment with a short return on investment period. It is delivered in pre-assembled sections, including fixing kits appropriate for the structure of the building, which ensures quick and low cost installation.
