The Benefits of Mechanical-Curtain Dock Shelters


At ASSA ABLOY, our primary focus is to empower people by providing businesses with the innovative door and access solutions they need to facilitate a smooth flow of goods and people during their daily operations.

That’s why we have created a range of dock shelters with cutting edge functionality and safety features, enabling you to carry out the loading and unloading process with heightened efficiency.

Damage Prevention

The Mechanical curtain dock shelters we present to you have built-in-springs to prevent any damage occurring when the shelter follows vehicle movement, and the curtain material has a very high wear-and-tear resistance. The fabric is held in place as the front curtains are fixed to the front frames, increasing flexibility. It is this secured flexibility that strengthens the tear-resistance of the fabric and avoids breaking points, thereby empowering you with a safe and efficient process.

Weather Protection

When it comes to the loading and unloading process, weather protection is a high priority because the operation is not instantaneous, and you ideally want to eliminate any risk of weather damaging your goods. As we are committed to giving you the right solution for you, we have equipped our mechanical dock shelters with a number of standard options to minimise draught being let into the building. Furthermore, the shelters are available in a vast range of sizes to guarantee you can find the perfect fit for you; the invitation our door and access solutions give to a more open world is not extended to inclement weather. 

As with all of our practical dock shelters, you are reducing energy transfer and increasing the energy efficiency of your operations. To improve your working conditions in a way that benefits your business specifically, we have 2 variations available:

DS6060P curtain dock shelter parallel
