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.
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.
