Stertil Dock Products launches coloured dock shelters
11 January 2018
Following successful use throughout mainland Europe, Stertil Dock Products now offers bespoke coloured curtains for its range of dock shelters to customers in the UK.
The Stertil range of dock shelters is used extensively to support loading and unloading operations at thousands of installations including distribution centres, warehouses, manufacturing sites, retail outlets, transport hubs and many other locations. In these applications, the shelters provide a universal and flexible solution by ensuring optimal sealing on vehicles of varying types, heights and widths.
Having earned an enviable reputation for quality and reliability over many years, Stertil has become increasingly involved in designing and developing bespoke solutions to help promote customers’ branding. This has involved the incorporation of logos and colour schemes to reinforce corporate identities and the introduction of bespoke coloured dock shelters is a continuation of this process.
Stertil dock shelters are made from top-quality materials. The combination of an aluminium frame and strong, reinforced curtain materials results in a very effective structure that will last for decades. Top and side curtains automatically press against vehicles whilst an effective wind protection system keeps the curtains in place even under extreme wind conditions.
The curtain shelters are available in four different models including the WL as the standard premium model with maximum versatility, the WF model without side panels for use on recessed platforms, the WSP model with a fixed frame and the cost effective WE version.
The WL curtain shelter incorporates many features to ensure the best possible seal in all environments. An integral collapsible aluminium frame prevents damage from badly positioned vehicles and can be fully customised. Also, by safely accommodating a wide range of vehicle sizes and offering a range of projections from 600 to 900mm WL curtain shelters are extremely versatile. Other advantages include:
• Optimal drainage of rainwater
• Standard double guidance chevron markings for correct positioning of vehicles to shelter
• Attractive, streamlined exterior design
• Wide range of materials and options
• Low weight for easy installation
Incorporating a fixed frame comprising 40mm thick insulated sandwich panels, the WSP curtain shelter offers a wide range of dimensions combined with a distinguished design. Weatherproof cut-outs are also available to ensure top performance when the face of the building is not flush.
The WF curtain dock shelter is the perfect solution for docks located in a recess. With its fixed frame mounted into the wall, the shelter ensures a perfect seal without moving parts.
Stertil's WE Dock Shelter has been specially developed to fulfil the requirement for cost effective accommodation of a wide range of vehicle parameters.
Alongside its family of curtain dock shelters, Stertil also offers an extensive range of inflatable shelters. Featuring inflatable side and top seals to provide a virtually airtight contact with vehicles, these are ideal for supporting loading and unloading operations within temperature controlled warehouses and distribution centres to seal against summer heat, winter cold, draught, dust and insects. All models in the inflatable range can be supplied with 3mm thick curtains which may be specified in any colour to suit a customer’s branding and house style.
“We still supply the majority of our dock shelters complete with standard black curtains,” says Andy Georgiou, general manager of Stertil Dock Products. “However, we have responded to a growing requirement for bespoke coloured curtains and we are pleased to help promote our customers’ brands alongside providing a range of world-beating dock products.”
