Dock Shelters

FLEXFRAME® Dock Shelter

This dock shelter's accommodating design services a wide variety of vehicle sizes and types, while providing full trailer access during the loading process. A gravity-biased, flexible frame yields to misguided vehicles, preventing costly building and shelter damage.

As the vehicle approaches, if off-center vehicle contact occurs, it moves upward and back to prevent costly damage to the wall and shelter. After the vehicle leaves, a gravity-biased design returns the frame to its original position.
