Frommelt Dock Seals

Oct. 14, 2009
Rite-Hite Corp. says its new line of Frommelt Platinum series high-performance dock seals features engineering and materials that extend the life of foam compression dock seal components.

The Platinum series dock seals’ head pad and head curtain designs help them withstand abuses from backing trailers. An outer reinforcing of Durathon fabric protects against extreme wear and tear on high-traffic docks, and corner-wear boots (instead of wear pleats) cover the ends of the header and upper side pads to protect areas most prone to damage. The boots attach with Velcro, making them easy to remove and replace when worn.

Seals with head curtains feature impactable, high-molecular-weight-polyethylene framing, making them resistant to damage from trailers that back in off center, Rite-Hite says.

Headers also feature Firefighter heat-dissipation protection, a triple-layer, reinforced foil technology that prevents heat buildup from trailer marker lights that can burn dock seal headers.
