Dock bumpers can absorb 90-95% of the impact of a backing truck colliding with the dock. Bumpers protect against impact damage and against up-and-down movement of the truck bed during loading/unloading.
Since bumpers limit how close the truck is parked to the dock, they affect dock leveler lip, as well as the dock seal or the dock shelter protections.
Dock bumpers protect against impact damage
Standard bumpers are 4 inches thick, but laminated bumpers are also available in 6 inches (thickness). The 4 inches bumper reduces the gap between the trailer floor and the dock face. Additional thickness may be required for recessed docks or special applications.
Steel Face Bumper
Molded dock bumpers (rubber dock bumpers) are ideal for:
✓ Light traffic loading docks
✓ Indoor wall protection for your facility.
✓ Interior walls from potential damage caused by forklifts or any other material handling equipment.
✓ Molded dock bumpers will not warp, rust or harden.
✓ Light traffic applications where damage to walls or equipment is a concern.
Molded dock bumpers are maintenance-free. These will not warp, rust or harden.
Vertical Molded Dock Bumper
Rectangular Molded Dock Bumper
Laminated bumpers guard against damage to buildings, loading docks, and cargo during loading and unloading vehicles in your loading dock area. These bumpers will hold up to years of low to medium traffic.
We provide laminated dock bumpers that are industry standard and suit most applications absorbing up to 80% of impact forces. These are available in either 4” or 6” projection, with lengths up to 36” long.
- Extra-length dock bumpers and extra-dick dock bumpers are available upon request.
Steel Face Bumpers
Use steel-face bumpers for high-frequency or heavy-impact/heavy-duty applications, or where jockey trucks are used for truck positioning. The steel plate face on the bumper protects against the unusual wear and biting out of the rubber. Integrate these bumpers into your facility's system to get heavy-duty protection.
