When you think about the job dock bumpers do (they get hit by trucks over and over… and over), paying as little as possible for them would seem to make sense. The question is, by saving a little now, will you be paying a lot later? The answer for high-traffic docks, is that the right bumpers can save money, reduce maintenance, avoid dock closures and minimize hassle long past the purchase period.
Properly positioned and maintained, dock bumpers protect: trailers being loaded, the loading dock (including concrete foundation), and all dock equipment (eg dock leveler, dock seal, etc.) The damage that results from an inadequately protected dock can add up fast.
Ideal Warehouse Innovations controls every aspect of the dock bumper production process. We cut, laminate, bend, weld and more, all in the name of ensuring the highest quality bumpers.
Our rubber bumpers are built from the toughest/most durable engineered rubber available – recycled truck tires. Truck tire vastly outperforms recycled conveyor belt material and molded rubber products.
An environmental choice, for every bumper we create, two tires are kept out of landfill.
(A reminder from the product that helps you avoid them.)
The challenge for any dock bumper is less the “truck impact” (easy for us to say), than it is the abrasion caused during loading/unloading of the trailer. As the trailer rises and falls with the weight of the forklift and cargo, the truck/bumper contact point scuffs, scrapes and degrades. Over time, any bumper will wear away, literally shredded like cheese, to the point it no longer offers the protection your dock needs.
The last bumper you will ever have to install!!
Our new SLIDE-effect® dock bumper incorporates a slide mechanism within the bumper assembly. The ‘spring & slide’ action allows the bumper to move up and down with the trailer to limit abrasion and extend the life of your dock equipment while reducing service calls.
And, should the tough, impact-absorbing, reclaimed truck tire rubber pad in the SLIDE-effect® bumper ever need to be replaced, it can be swapped out, inexpensively, in under a minute and without tools.
