The PitMaster under-leveler seal closes off the fourth side of dock openings, beneath and around the dock leveler. The resulting barrier seals air gaps to reduce energy costs.

The standard unit is designed to fit a variety of leveler types and features a compressible sealing curtain made of black vinyl. The curtain is held in place by spring-loaded arms and flexible stays that keep the seal engaged against the leveler and pit sides throughout leveler operation. A separate header curtain maintains the seal.

It closes up the pit and seals air gaps where the leveler, the truck and the dock seal or shelter meet. By eliminating small openings at the trailer level, the seal helps prevent dust, pests, debris and refuse from collecting in leveler pits; and keeps the dock area and facility clean.

Leveler lip corner seals help to eliminate hard-to-seal gaps at corners of the dock leveler. When a trailer is in place, optional filler pads close the gaps between the leveler and dock shelter to further seal gaps.

It has a quick-disconnect feature that allows the main sealing curtain to be released for access to the leveler pit when dock equipment maintenance is needed.
