Dock shelters and Dock houses

PMS - Mechanical shelter


Mechanical PMS shelter is a new solution among broad range of PROMStahl products. It is intended for customers who attach a lot of weight to energy savings and who want to protect their goods against the effects of the weather conditions. The differences in the dimensions between the door opening of a warehouse and the docked truck form empty spaces that must be sealed as tightly as possible.

PMS shelter is composed of a mobile roof and side walls. The side parts are made of flexible foam (providing additional insulation in comparison to conventional solutions), which sags under the semi-trailer pressure on the shelter. With such a possibility, the shelter is not damaged even in the case of eccentric docking of a vehicle. The roof structure also prevents its damage during docking of even very large trucks e.g.: semi-trailers with containers. During a vehicle reversing, a semi-trailer presses on the roof and thus deflects it to a safe height. After vehicle departure, the roof returns to its original position. The front part of the shelter is provided with 3 mm thick extremely tear-resistant tarpaulins made of PVC, reinforced with dual textile interlace and lamella. Such solution improves the shelter working surface adhesion to a vehicle semi-trailer. To facilitate the docking process, the shelter is equipped with vehicle guide stripes. The foam is finished on the sides of the shelter with durable and waterproof black PVC material. Additional gasket mounted from the building wall side and the roof equipped with drainage gutter and eaves are efficient protection from rain. The top curtain is by standard made with side slits (cuts).

Optionally we also provide the version with partially or fully slit curtain. The equipment is delivered in pre-assembled parts, including sets of connectors appropriate for the structure of the building, which ensures quick and low cost installation in any construction industry situation.
