How do I properly install and maintain truck loading dock bumpers?

To properly install and maintain truck loading dock bumpers, follow these steps: 1. Measure the dock height and choose bumpers of suitable size to ensure adequate protection. 2. Mark the installation points, keeping bumpers centred on the dock and spaced evenly. 3. Drill pilot holes and secure bumpers using heavy-duty anchor bolts for optimal stability. 4. Regularly inspect bumpers for wear, cracks, or damage, and replace as needed to maintain effectiveness. 5. Clean bumpers periodically to remove debris and prevent premature deterioration. 6. Ensure that truck drivers accurately position their vehicles to avoid excessive stress on bumpers. 7. Schedule routine maintenance checks to prolong the life of your loading dock bumpers and maintain a safe working environment.
