Raised Dock Bumpers | NYC & NJ Area

Posted by Maria Lacanlale on April 13, 2016

Raised dock bumpers should be considered when there is a difference between the dock height and the trailer truck height. If the truck height is higher than the dock, the truck might miss the bumper.

Using raised dock bumpers can prevent damage to the dock equipment and architectural structure of the building, this will save you money from spending on damaged loading dock and buildings.

For an  instance, on the pictures below you will know why it is important to acquire raised dock bumpers for loading and unloading purposes:

See that the truck trailer height in the picture below is higher than the dock height. The truck trailer height is 51" and the dock height is 45". There is 6" difference,  and the truck is hitting the loading dock & building.

This may lead the ICC bar of the truck to hit the loading dock leveler that may cause damage  to your loading dock equipment.

Applying 6" raised bumpers with steel gussets to take the truck impact  will  prevent the ICC bar of the truck from taking the impact.

As a result there will be no building damage and no loading dock damage. Dock seals will be mounted above the bumpers. As we all know, Loaded trucks only stop when they hit something.
