Rite-Hite Corporation introduces its new line of Frommelt Platinum Series dock seals, featuring advanced engineering and materials that significantly extend the life of foam compression dock seal components.

Features of the Platinum Series dock seals include head pad and head curtain designs that ensure they easily withstand abuses delivered by backing trailers, which frequently destroy other dock seal headers. Removable/replaceable wear components also make maintenance simple and cost-effective.

Platinum Series dock seal headers have an outer reinforcing of high-strength, friction-resistant Durathon fabric, which protects against extreme wear and tear on high-traffic docks. Tough corner-wear boots (instead of ordinary wear pleats) cover the ends of the header and upper side pads to protect areas of the seal most prone to damage. The independent, double-reinforced boots attach with Velcro, making them easy to remove and replace when worn.

These seals are offered with high-performance heads pads or head curtains. The head pads have a backerless, pivoting design so the entire header moves along with movement from a semitrailer at the dock, thereby preventing wear associated with air-ride trailers, and damage from yard jockeys. Seals with head curtains feature impactable, high-molecular-weight-polyethylene framing, making them resistant to damage from trailers that back in off-center.

Platinum Series headers also feature Firefighter heat-dissipation protection, a triple-layer, reinforced foil technology that prevents heat buildup from trailer marker lights that can lead to burning of dock seal headers. Headers with Firefighter protection are guaranteed not to burn from the heat of trailer marker lights.

Additional durability can be built into Frommelt’s dock seals by eliminating traditional wear pleats along the side pads, and replacing them with a continuous layer of friction-resistant Durathon fabric, which also wraps around to protect the inside edges of the side pads from damage from forklift traffic in and out of the trailer.
