Loading Dock Bumpers
Trailers apply a tremendous force on loading docks and over time can cause extensive damage to the building walls and foundation. Wrong-sized and poor quality bumpers do not provide the needed protection.
Protect your investment with Loading Dock Bumpers from Rite-Hite.
Your local Rite-Hite Representative can survey your loading dock conditions to determine the most effective bumper design and application for your operation.
Important considerations will include:
- Dock approach – level, decline or incline
- Dock height
- Air-ride trailers
- Mounting face conditions
- Use of yard jockeys
- Types of trailers serviced
- Quantity and frequency of trailers
