Loading Dock Bumpers – Entry Point Dock Safety!

Loading dock safety with dock bumpers in Dallas TXDid you know that the force of impact that a backing up semi truck can generate is about 300,000 pounds of force?  That’s why loading dock bumpers are one of the basic, most important safety components of the loading dock area.

Loading Dock – Entry Point Dock Safety

At the very beginning or end of every trucking journey, there is a loading dock in which they need to pull in to.  Having a point of entry that protects truck, trailer, product, and dock is essential.  Rubber dock bumpers have impact resilience and strength to withstand the awesome impact from daily truck stops.

But over time, the rubber wears and tears becoming a potential safety hazard.  Fortunately, they’re one of the most cost effective safety components to replace and install in your loading dock area!


When Should You Replace Your Dock Bumpers?  

The dock bumpers you see in the top picture belong to a busy customer of ours in the pollution control industry.  Perfect example of wear and tear over the busy life of a rubber bumper.  Once you see large rubber chunks dropping off, it’s definitely time to replace.

We know there are a few factors that affect dock bumper selection such as dock height, dock approach, truck bed heights, general truck/trailer volume, and what dock equipment is being used such as dock levelers or standard dock plates.

Dock Bumper Replacement = Safety

after-bumper-installSales account manager, Chris Bewley, knew the exact bumper they needed for efficient and safe un/loading.  Always ensuring proper and safe equipment installation, install tech Jody Rogers increased safety at their point of entry.  Bewley was also able to evaluate any other potential safety issues within the loading dock area.  This helps provide the crew with current operational equipment status and awareness of any potential hazards.  Having a consistent loading dock maintenance and repair plan is a great way to preserve the life of your equipment while keeping a consistent eye on safety.

Warehouse Collision Prevention Equipment - Dallas TX

Bollards and guardrail protect equipment and personnel from heavy traffic areas - Dallas TXSafety is a priority for our loyal customer and W.W. Cannon offered a safety solution for their productive manufacturing plant.

Plant manager, Eli needed his pallet rack relocated quickly into their brand new add-on facility. Our Warehouse Lifeguard, Doug Hutchins, went into action to provide the safety measures and equipment they required.

Guardrail protects personnel from heavy traffic areas - Dallas TXTo ensure the safest environment, Doug suggested adding guard rail, end of isle protectors and bollards to protect equipment, and ensure employees can move in and out of the isles safely.

Implementation and configuration of safety products included: 

  • protecting new pallet rack
  • the building walls
  • electrical panels
  • bathrooms

Column protectors keep columns safe from collision. Dallas TX Guardrail keeps your equipment safe from forklift damage. Dallas TX Guard rail was added outside the building to protect the building itself and the offices that large delivery trucks are being driven around the area.

Bollards were strategically placed: 

  • next to door ways
  • building columns
  • around battery charging area for their forklifts and encircled around the area for maximum safety

End of Aisle protectors were added to pallet rack to ensure the safest possible solution for product and avoid unnecessary fork lift damage.

Since getting the job completed safely was a #1 concern, our crew worked quickly at night. Productivity in the manufacturing and shipping areas ran smoothly without delays during the installation project. Our installation foreman, Frank Guevara, managed the project from beginning to completion with speed, safety and excellence.

Two companies that value safety come together and get the job done!

Dock & Door Preventative Maintenance Service Plans for Dallas/Fort Worth

Dock & Door Preventative Maintenance Plans for the Dallas Fort Worth TX AreaWe all know the importance of keeping our cars or trucks properly maintained. There are many parts that move and rub against each other. As this occurs the force and friction can create problems with overheating, warping, or loosening of components and hardware.  You wouldn’t trust your family in a vehicle that wasn’t safe – the same should apply for warehouse equipment and workers.

Just like getting a tune up or your oil changed on your vehicle, preventative maintenance is equally as crucial for the safety and longevity of your industrial doors and dock equipment. Routine maintenance extends the life of your equipment and also helps to prevent the possibility of downtime and accidents. Without a maintenance plan, failure of your equipment is almost certain.

after-installing-bug-dooreEarly detection of operational malfunctions increases efficiency, safety and reliability.

The loading dock is the heart of your warehouse operations – either you’re receiving products or shipping them out – there’s a lot of movement and energy.  Without this process running smoothly, it can cost money and be detrimental to your client relationships. Your reputation is on the line.

Having a preventative maintenance program is not a guarantee against failure or damage to your equipment, rather it’s an asset to the overall efficiency of your operations.
