The Benefits of Dock Buffers

If your warehouse deals with dozens of deliveries every single day, it is important that you protect it with high quality loading bay equipment. After all, the back of the shop requires the same care and attention as the front of the shop. Here at ABC Industrial, we are proud to say that our equipment is the perfect safety solution for loading and unloading lorries. Read on as we go through some of the important benefits that can be gained from using a dock buffer…

Prevents Expensive Repairs

When large loads are dealt with in a loading bay, the lorries can hit the sides and these impacts can cause a lot of damage that requires expensive repair work to be carried out without a dock buffer in place. By absorbing the majority of the impact, a dock buffer can reduce the amount of damage caused to help you keep your loading bay in tip top condition without breaking the bank.

Cost Effective

Repairs on an industrial property are not cheap which is why it is important to make worthwhile investments. Since a dock buffer helps keep your warehouse in top condition, it is a cost-effective piece of loading bay equipment. After all, the amount of money you will save over the years will equal out the upfront fee that you have to pay in no time.

Variety of Types

No two properties are the same, which is why we offer a wide variety of dock buffers in order to appeal to every customer and their requirements. For example, the standard dock buffer is made from composite reinforced rubber and is available in rectangular and L-shaped designs; the sliding buffer system is made from air suspension vehicles and provides a solution to the damage that is inflicted on standard designs, and polyethylene fronted buffers are a damage resistant and aesthetically pleasing option that comes with a longevity guarantee provided by the high molecular weighted polyethylene front. Also known as dock bumpers, a dock buffer is an essential loading bay component in order to protect your property and reduce the amount of damage caused by any impact. In fact, they absorb up to 80% of impact force when a lorry is loaded into a bay! If you are thinking about updating your loading bay just in time for Christmas, get in contact with a member of the ABC Industrial team and ask about our dock buffers today!
