The Eclipse® Dock Shelter by Rite-Hite blocks out the light and offers maximum environmental control at the loading dock. Along with the PitMaster® Under-leveler Seal, the Eclipse offers an advanced, highly effective seal around all four sides of the loading dock opening.

1. Seals Trailer Top:
Heavily Weighted Head Curtain

Creates a tight seal along full width of the trailer, using gravity to block gaps and main- tain constant contact during trailer heights. Diverts rain without the need for additional overhead device.

3. Seals the Sides:
GapMaster® Hooks

Creates a tight seal along full width of the trailer, using gravity to block gaps and main- tain constant contact during trailer heights. Diverts rain without the need for additional overhead device.

2. Seals the Corners:
Integral fabric sealing pockets

Side curtains and weighted head curtain work together when trailer backs in for a seal at the corner, where gaps often exist. Sealing pockets connect sides to top, block- ing gaps that other shelters cannot address.

4. Seals the Bottom:
PitMaster Sealing System

Gaps large and small beneath and around the dock leveler are sealed with optional PitMaster components, providing substan- tial energy savings, and improving cleanliness and sanitation.

The images below demonstrate the Eclipse Shelter’s ability to block out light at the loading dock, preventing contaminants, product damage, energy loss, safety hazards, quality concerns, and even employee discomfort from affecting your operation!

The Eclipse shelter, together with the PitMaster® Under-leveler Seal, offers an advanced, highly effective seal around all four sides of the loading dock opening.

Not only is the Eclipse shelter effective at sealing the costly gaps at the loading dock and obscuring daylight, but it is also extremely durable due to the Durathon® fabric side curtains, impact-absorbing header, and crushable side frames that offer superior protection against trailer wear and tear.
