Frommelt Products Corp., a division of Rite-Hite, introduces the PitMaster X Under-leveler Seal. This product is designed to seal open areas beneath and around air-powered dock levelers. The resulting barrier can reduce energy costs, while improving facility cleanliness by preventing dirt, dust, insects, and debris from entering through gaps.
By preventing airflow though openings, as well as minimizing the transfer of heat through the steel leveler deck, PitMaster X can reduce heating or cooling costs by as much as $900 per dock position, depending on climate. In cold storage facilities, the seal also helps reduce condensation on leveler decks for a safer dock environment.
The PitMaster X Under-leveler Seal is applied in addition to a three-sided dock seal or shelter to seal the fourth side of the dock opening. It features two sealing curtains constructed of durable black vinyl attached to the leveler's lower and upper frames. The curtains are supported by compressible, triangular foam gussets to ensure longterm durability. Separate lip corner seals and an open lip-hinge seal fill remaining gaps to produce a highly efficient seal.
The unit installs easily with common tools and can be released for access to the leveler pit when dock equipment maintenance is needed. Sealing components can be replaced quickly and easily but require no regular maintenance.
