Features & Benefits:

(Classic seal with traditional header)
  • Rugged ArmorPleat™ protection – Available on full length of side pads, ArmorPleats provide additional abrasion protection to extend the life of the dock seal. Available in high-strength, friction-resistant Durathon® fabric.
  • Head Pad Model: Traditional head pad – Foam compression head pad seals directly against trailer. Corner wear pleats provide added reinforcement.
  • Head Curtain Model: Adjustable head curtain – Pull-rope activation allows flexibility to manually adjust seal to varying trailer heights to ensure most effective coverage. Corner wear pleats provide added reinforcement.
  • Available Firefighter® header protection – Optional Firefighter system prevents head pad from burning due to the heat buildup of compressed trailer marker lights.

  • Rugged ArmorPleat™ protection – Available on full length of side pads, ArmorPleats provide additional abrasion protection to extend the life of the dock seal. Available in high-strength, friction-resistant Durathon® fabric.
  • Triple-reinforced corner wear boots – Multiple layers under outer Durathon friction-resistant fabric fortify corners, where earliest and most severe damage typically occurs.
  • Replaceable wear components – Corner wear boots and head curtain face are attached with Velcro and are quickly and easily replaced, if needed, for simple, low-cost maintenance or upgrades.
  • Internal Firefighter® technology – Triple-layer foil heat-dissipation system in header prevents burning from the heat build-up of compressed trailer marker lights.
  • Light-blocking header face – Mini pleats close gaps caused by seal-breaking protrusions on backs of trailers.
  • Head Pad Model: Anti-sag head pad construction – Backerless head pad with internal stabilizing panel adapts to trailer movement, preventing foam from sagging over time after repeated trailer impact and bouncing motion.
  • Head Pad Model: Head pad pop-off protection – Unique mounting allows head pad to pivot upwards freely, preventing it from becoming pried off the wall by trailers when yard jockeys are in use.
  • Head Curtain Model: Impactable header frame – Flexible framing resists damage if struck by trailer coming in too high.
  • Head Curtain Model: Head curtain stability system – Self-locking design improves sealing integrity at trailer top and eliminates the need for wind straps. Prevents curtain from blowing in wind and losing contact with trailer.
  • Available PitMaster™ 4th-side sealing system – Gaps beneath and around dock leveler and bumpers are sealed with optional PitMaster components, providing energy savings, improving cleanliness and helping pass inspections.
