Dock bumpers are an absolute must-have product for anyone who deals with transporting cargo. These protective shields guard the building from vehicle impact damage as the goods are being transported between them. Left alone, the building can be impacted by hundreds of thousands of pounds of brute force, causing damage to the building, the vehicle, and your wallet. Dock bumpers also prevent friction and abrasion from the vehicle’s proximity to the building; without the bumpers, the body of the truck or attached trailer will rub and grate against the building. This friction causes damage to both the truck and the wall over time that will eventually require repairs. Using edge of dock levellers and vertical storing docks is a novel way to free up valuable space. Installing these shields is a great way to reduce both kinds of damage and save yourself time, energy, and money dealing with the fallout. If you’re finding that moving around and loading cargo is a tight, uncomfortable procedure, then dock bumpers are a great idea.
There is no one true kind of dock bumper that fits all businesses and their needs. We work with you to find the best solution for you and your business. We consider dock height and projection, the slope of the approach, and the existing mounting surfaces, as well as the types of trucks and trailers all being loaded. Different materials may be needed as well. We offer dock bumpers and laminated bumpers with steel faces or molded rubber depending on your particular wants and the common scenarios in your business. We also offer stop lip docks with a vertically mounted dock lip to prevent forklifts from rolling off when there is no truck in place. It doesn’t matter whether you have heavy impact or high traffic scenarios; we can find a product that is perfect for you. Some construction may be required in situations to make sure that our solution fits your building and your requirements. If we can’t find anything that suits your needs, we go the extra mile and offer custom bumper configurations for unique situations. We keep safety, performance, and reliability as our top priorities throughout the entire transaction. Contact McKee-Horrigan Inc. today and we’ll be happy to provide you with a free quotation!
