Dock Shelter for Loading Docks

Rite-Hite, Milwaukee, Wis., introduced the Eclipse shelter—what is said to be the first system to block light and seal gaps, guaranteeing the darkest, most Rite Hite dock shelterenvironmentally-secure dock possible.

In a single piece of equipment, the Eclipse shelter provides a tight, consistent seal all the way up trailer sides, across the top and at the corners.

On the sides of the trailer, durable GapMaster hooks wrap around swing-open trailer doors, sealing the gaps created by the door hinge. The hooks are constructed of a rugged, premium material for extreme durability, and are wrapped with a flexible vinyl sleeve that conforms around the hinges for a better seal. Side curtains are built with high-strength Durathon fabric, which features a unique, friction-resistant surface to resist wear.

Along the top of the trailer, an exclusive weighted head curtain applies over 100 pounds of pressure across the full width of the trailer top. This gravity-based system keeps the curtain in constant contact with the trailer during loading and unloading, ensuring a tight, consistent seal without requiring an additional rain diversion header. This weighted curtain automatically adjusts to all trailer heights, eliminating the need for manual pull ropes.

At the top corners, the Eclipse side curtains and weighted header work together to seal gaps. Innovative fabric corner pockets connect sides to top, providing a dark, complete seal when trailers back into place.

Below and around the dock leveler, Rite-Hite’s exclusive PitMaster under-leveler sealing system provides a barrier against environmental infiltration on the exterior of the dock. Meanwhile, lip corner seals, filler pads and other components block gaps on the inside of the dock.
