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!
What Our Customers are Saying
Company gave us the best price on garage door installation and have been prompt, efficient and reasonably priced in all our dealings with them.
The guys who fixed my door were very polite and helpful, and I appreciated they got the job done that very day.
Good Morning. Just wanted to take the time to say thank you for this past Saturday. We had an incident where a vehicle drove through our DT door, your team came and fixed the door by putting new paneling all done within same day. We were able to arm the alarm by end of day. I know people do not take the time to say thank you. We appreciate it! Have a good day and tell the team member who was here that he did a great job and thank him from our Management team.
Javier and his coworker were very knowledgeable and very good at their job and exceptionally good and dealing with customer - me!
Technician - Alex. Very professional and was very helpful in providing explanations and responses to any of my questions. He did an excellent job and in a very timely manner. Thanks
It was a pleasure dealing with both Mike on the sales side and Alex on the service side. Mike recommended a cost efficient repair rather than a new door and Alex came out and made the door work like new. I have complete confidence in McKee Horrigan after my experience with both of them and would recommend them to anyone looking for help with garage doors.
Technicians were extremely helpful and very professional. A pleasure to work with. Lady at the office also very helpful and professional. I would definitely recommend McKee-Horrigan to friends and neighbors.
I just had my new garage door installed by McKee Horrigan and I am very happy with their service. The door looks great and has really increased the overall appearance of our house. The installers were very professional and a pleasure to deal with. I will be recommending McKee Horrigan to all of my neighbours, family and friends.
We recently got our two door garage merged into one big double door which was very challenging. Mike was very professional and patient throughout, our various trips to pick up samples for design and color and he too helped in leaving a big sample for us to take the right decision and we are so happy with the final outcome though it took months as we had to get the right engineer and permits from the city of Oakville. Jeff who too did a marvelous job in preparing the structural drawings our special thanks also go to Jeff and Luis and his team who did the construction work. Great job done by all of them. We will highly recommend Mike and his team especially for any complex job.
Very good guys, I'm very happy with my finished garage door. Scott organized and took my order and Chris installed it for us and both are great guys and very kind. These guys fixed my old garage door as it was too dangerous to operate while we waited for the new garage order to come in. I highly recommend this company for all garage door needs.
