Pitmaster : How to reduce energy costs at the loading dock

PitMaster is the industry’s best-selling seal to complete the job of the loading dock seal or shelter by simply and effectively sealing the 4th side of the dock opening.

With a variety of optional components, PitMaster can dramatically improve:

Facility cleanliness

Helps keep dirt, debris and refuse out of leveler pit; closes gaps around leveler that allow dirt, dust and insects into the building. Improves industrial hygiene and sanitation, and reduces white space to help pass inspections.

Simple installation and maintenance

“One-size-fits-all” design installs easily on all Rite-Hite levelers, and on many other leveler makes and models as well. Quick-disconnect feature allows main sealing curtain to be released for access to the leveler pit. PitMaster sealing components require no regular maintenance of their own.

Energy savings 

Seals gaps to prevent heating or cooling energy from escaping the building through air flow, and reduces heat transfer through steel leveler deck. Can save up to $1,000 per year per dock position in total energy savings, depending on climate. Refer to table below to see typical annual energy savings by location.

How PitMaster works ?

A PitMaster under-leveler seal can help you save substantially on your energy costs. Without PitMaster, the front of a typical dock leveler pit is fully open to the outside environment. Open spaces allow airflow in and out of your facility, and heat is constantly transferred through the steel deck of the dock leveler.

Sealing the front of the leveler pit with PitMaster cuts energy loss in two ways. First, it closes open spaces that dock seals and shelters don’t seal, preventing the exchange of hot and cold air through your dock opening. Second, PitMaster helps prevent the transfer of heat through the leveler deck.
