Dock shelters are incredibly effective products that form a vital part of any loading bay.

If you receive goods on a daily basis you should already be well aware of how difficult it can be to prevent sudden temperature fluctuations when a loading bay door is opened. However, did you know that selecting the right dock shelters for your operating environment can help reduce your utility bill by as much as 40%?


Why invest in dock shelters?

Here at Easilift Loading Systems Ltd, our dock shelters are designed to provide an effective and durable seal between the internal and external environments of your loading bay. Our inflatable dock shelters can significantly reduce the amount of air that ingresses or egresses from your building during the loading-unloading process

Our dock shelters can be designed bespoke to create a tight fit around your fleet of vehicles which helps to protect your delicate goods from exposure to contaminants.

Easilift Loading Systems dock shelters are manufactured to the highest standards to cope with the demanding requirements of a 24/7 operating environment and can be designed to suit all types of vehicles.


The other benefits of our dock shelters

Our dock shelters do much more than simply reduce your energy consumption and make it safer and easier to load and unload goods.

By maintaining the temperature inside your building, you will be able to improve the working conditions for your employees, reduce the spread of illness and keep the number of absences to a minimum - meaning that you will also improve staff morale, achieve your deadlines and save money.


What types of dock shelters do we offer here at Easilift Loading Systems?

All of our dock shelters can be customised to cater to the needs of your existing loading bays and vehicles. We have three variations of dock shelter you can choose from:

Collapsible Dock Shelters: Our most popular shelter and one which is best suited to ambient temperature environments. Very flexible and accommodates a wide range of vehicle heights and widths. Collapsible dock shelters provide an effective weather seal and also prevent the risk of rain and vermin from entering into the building.  

Cushioned Dock Shelters: Well suited to temperature controlled environments or situations where preventing contamination of goods is important. However, whilst this dock shelter is very effective it is best suited to a fleet of dedicated vehicles with consistent heights and widths.

Inflatable Dock Shelters: Well suited to temperature controlled environments or situations where preventing contamination of goods is important. Inflatable dock shelters provide the optimal seal between the internal and external environments and are the best solution for cold storage warehouses. An inflatable dock shelter provides a high level of flexibility and is able to interface with a much wider range of vehicle heights and widths.
