Dock Shelters

Dock Shelters


Dock shelters from Barron Equipment Company are a great way to protect dock personnel and equipment from outside elements. Because the entire back of the truck is enclosed by the shelter, leakage of water and heat is kept to a minimum.

Protection from the Elements

With a heavy duty rigid frame, dock shelters from Barron Equipment are able to withstand damaging force and compression from trailers, as well as inclement weather. Employees will have full unimpeded access to trailers, allowing for safe loading and unloading of trucks. Climate controlled facilities can also benefit from the use of dock shelters due to the foam pads on the sides and the improved dock sealing technology of dock shelters. Overall, a frame dock shelter is a great choice to allow employees full access to trailers while keeping products and personnel safe.

Dock Shelter Construction

Rigid Frame Series Dock Shelter

This is an example of our Rigid Frame Series Dock Shelters and is our most popular style of dock shelters. It is designed for dock door openings up to 12 feet wide by 12 feet high.

Soft Sided Series Dock Shelter

Our Soft Sided Dock Shelter Series can also accommodate dock door openings of 12 feet x 12 feet but has added flexibility for minimizing impact of trailers.


Our team of service technicians at Barron Equipment have been installing dock shelters for over 43 years. Our experts can replace old dock shelters with brand new ones, or install new ones to an opening that has not previously had dock shelters.
