LAMINATED DOCK BUMPERS


LAMINATED DOCK  BUMPERS®  (LB-2240)
Laminated bumpers are the "Work-Horse" in the bumper field, having been made for many decades. Docks with no bumper protection or inadequate styles (such as wooden timbers), are in danger of causing damage to vehicle and property. OSHA requires that all docks have proper durable type bumpers.

Special overlapping angles can be provided to standard bumpers where required to minimize the gap between units. Always start with a standard model with the regular flush-angles. Continue with the "OL" (overlap) type. Different size bumpers may be used in the "OL" layout. Each bumper designated "OL" will have one angle offset and one regular offset (see sketch below).

SPECIFICATIONS (C.I.S. Div. 11 Loading Dock Equipment)
Laminated Bumpers are made of resilient recycled rubber-cord material from old truck and airplane tires. They are cut in uniform pads and punched to receive 3/4" supporting rods. Ends of these bumpers are enclosed with metal angles under 1,500 pounds of pressure and welded to the supporting rods. The anchor leg  extends 2-1/2" beyond the rubber with either 2 or 3 anchor bolt holes 13/16". The other leg of the angle is 1-1/2" shorter than the rubber pads so that the metal will not be touched on impact.

Assembly, Installation
We recommend all bumpers be installed 1" to 2" below dock level. Welding should be done where possible and anchor holes should be plug welded. Use 3/4" or 5/8" lag bolts with a minimum length of 3" and corresponding shields if required. Use 3/4" "J" bolts with a minimum length of 8" and 1-1/4" projection.

One Year Guarantee
AFCO Laminated Dock Bumper guarantee offers to replace, on a service pro-rate basis within a one year period, bumpers which have lost their effectiveness because of wear. Damage resulting from faulty installation or accident is not covered, nor is damage to the truck dock or personnel. Installation and freight are not included.
