* Durathon is a proprietary, high-strength, friction-resistant fabric with a textured surface for increased abrasion resistance compared to standard fabrics
** Guraranteed not to burn from heat of trailer marker lights
A large Distribution warehouse in the Twin Cities area needed a tight seal at the dock to control temperature but was experiencing excessive wear on their dock seals due to a high volume of traffic. For years they had been using foam dock seals with wear pleats, but the wear pleats were being quickly torn off by the movement of the trailers from air-ride systems and during normal loading/unloading. They were also damaging the inside face of the side pads with pallets and wide loads.
Pugleasa's salesperson evaluated the situation with the customer and suggested the INSULATOR dock seal as a solution. The INSULATOR features a durable, no-pleats design that is capable of withstanding the abuse caused by trailer movement and loading/unloading. Additionally, the INSULATOR includes a FireFighter head pad that provides protection against fires caused by trailer indicator lights, a problem that the customer had experienced at other locations.
The customer now benefits by having dock seals that last longer, maintain temperature, require less frequent replacement and protect against loading dock fires, thereby saving them money over the long-term.
