Loading Dock Bumper

Updated: Dec 24, 2022

What is a dock bumper?

A backing truck colliding with a dock bumper can absorb 90-95% of the impact. Bumpers protect the truck bed from collision damage and up-and-down movement during loading and unloading.

Because bumpers limit how close the vehicle may be parked to the dock, they have an impact on the dock leveller lip, as well as the dock seal and dock shelter safeguards.

A dock bumper literally creates a buffer between building and vehicle. Accidents can occur on a loading dock extremely rapidly. While reversing, the truck driver is susceptible to steering or estimation errors. The result is hard contact between the truck and the loading bay. The building and the car may sustain damage as a result of this. As a result, the costs can sometimes be high.

To prevent accidents with the associated costs, dock bumpers can be mounted on both sides of the dock leveller. The bumpers prevent damage by absorbing the impact forces of the vehicle.
