Dock bumpers are devices designed with bars attached to the loading docks of commercial and industrial facilities to help absorb impact if hit by a transportation device or truck
. When vehicles dock for loading or offloading, it is not uncommon to get their rear pushing or hitting the end of the facility. This can result in serious damages to the vehicle and the facility. The bumpers are designed to help absorb this impact and prevent or minimize damage. Dock bumpers can be designed using foam or rubber. Foam is considered cheaper and ideal for light-duty cushioning. However, molded rubber is recommended when dealing with heavy-duty trucks and transport vehicles. To increase the efficiency of impact absorption, the dock bumpers are designed in various shapes and strengths. You can opt for the L-shaped dock bumpers, trailer crane bumpers, laminated bumpers, extruded rubber fenders, or hardened molded rubber bumpers.
