Each dock must be equipped with a form of dock bumper to protect the building from vehicle impact damage. Keep in mind that an approaching vehicle can generate up to 300,000 lbs. of impact force. Several styles of bumper are available to suit application requirements.
For typical level approach applications, bumper projection should be specified at not less than 4″. For recessed docks or special applications, additional projection or build-out boxes may be required.
The two most common styles are molded rubber bumpers and laminated rubber bumpers.
Molded Bumpers – Fabric reinforced masticated rubber, shaped with lag bolt holes
Laminated Bumpers – Fabric reinforced rubber pads, laminated and secured between steel angles
Loading dock bumpers that are damaged, missing, or misapplied can result in trailer collisions with your building, causing costly structural damage.
