Rite-Hite’s PitMaster V system seals trailer dock face gaps

Rite-Hite recently improved the sealing power at the dock with its innovative PitMaster V Dock Face Sealing System.

Rite-Hite recently improved the sealing power at the fourth side of the dock with its innovative PitMaster V Dock Face Sealing System.

The product is designed to seal open gaps on the dock face and pit floor in vertical leveler applications, saving energy, improving pit cleanliness and helping reduce infiltration of weather and contaminants, the company claimed.

The PitMaster V consists of easy-to-install SealWheel and PitPad components, which work together to seal open gaps on the dock face and pit floor in vertical leveler applications.

“A good loading dock enclosure seals all four sides of loading dock openings, and holds up against wear and tear from trailers that crush into it day after day,” said Mary Blaser, director of marketing for Rite-Hite. “The PitMaster V is designed to seal those vertical leveler applications, including when trailer doors are opened inside the building as a security measure.”

Rite-Hite says the PitMaster V offers several benefits, including:

  • Effortless environmental control—Interactive sealing components adjust automatically to trailer and leveler lip position.
  • Easy installation—The simple two-part system installs quickly, requiring minimal dock downtime.
  • Durable design—Rugged materials hold up over time; the components are individually replaceable as needed.
  • Flexible application—Designs available for standard as well as drive-through situations.

When a trailer backs up to a dock, there is typically an unsealed space between the dock face and trailer, which can drive up energy costs, as well as increase the risk of cargo compromise due to weather and unwanted pests. With the two-step system of the PitMaster V, the open gaps are sealed and the leveler lip has the ability to move and serve its purpose in virtually any vertical leveler application, Rite-Hite said.
