(Carrollton, TX) — The Serco® Thermal Guard Package, available on Serco Vertical Storing Dock Levelers, provides the ultimate energy and security seal for climate-controlled loading docks.  This additional package allows truck doors to be opened from inside the building after the truck is positioned at the door without breaking a thermal seal at the dock.

The Thermal Guard Package includes an enhanced hinged bottom draft pad, bumper covers and extended bumper gussets (to work with 10’ wide door) to provide greater sealing capability, as well as an extra dock bumper mounted on the face of the dock to better protect the building.

Design benefits:

  • Helps protect the integrity of the building’s thermal envelope since the cold air inside a refrigerated trailer or building is not lost in the open air or outside the building.
  • Provides much higher security since the trailer seals are broken inside of the building instead of in the driveway or before the trailer is secured at the dock decreasing the risk of shrinkage.
  • Increases efficiency of logistics since trailers can be staged at dock doors for service at a later date or time, without having to move trailers again in order to open the doors.
  • Utilizing these unique Serco products can help maintain a consistent temperature on the loading dock year-round.
