Dock Bumpers from Metro Dock minimize damage to your building caused by the daily flow of traffic at your loading bay. The bumpers are mounted on the face of the foundation walls in order to absorb truck impact. Metro Dock Bumpers also ensure adequate spacing between the truck bed and the loading dock. The pivoting motion of the dock leveler lip requires this space created by the bumpers in order to fully and safely extend onto the truck beds.
Fabricated of nylon cord reinforced rubber compound, Moulded Bumpers are best used in low traffic docks.

These heavy-duty rubber pads are made of durable recycled truck and airplane tires. They are compressed between structural steel angles and secured with ¾” steel tie rods.

Bumper Risers are used when incoming vehicles are taller than the loading bay floor. They prevent the truck from backing up over the edge of the loading dock.
Some loading docks are approached at a decline. In these instances, projection boxes extend the reach of the bumper to ensure that the top of the truck cannot contact the building or the overhead door.
