Docks and Shelters

Dock shelters offer an effective barrier against the elements to form an efficient and effective protection during loading and unloading.

When the vehicle reverses into the shelter, it pushes back the curtains to create a seal from wind and rain.

Thorworlds’ standard Dock Shelters are of a ‘collapsible’ design, meaning that the frame will hinge back against the building when impacted by misaligned vehicles, rather than breaking like most traditional fixed frame designs.

Low cost and low maintenance.

Designed to compensate for a wide variety of vehicle sizes and poorly aligned vehicles.

If hit in a particular way, it will collapse to minimise damage.

Manufactured from Polyester Trevira fabric with PVC UV resistant coating on both sides ensuring very high tear resistance.

Up to 900mm projection possible, (standard projection 600mm).

Supplied to suit heights between 2.5 and 3.0 m and a usable width of 2.3 – 2.8 m.
