B4520-11-SF – 20″ High x 11″ Long x 45″ Thick
The B4520-11-SF is a quality laminated rubber bumper but incased with an even tougher steel plate face. Importantly, steel-faced dock bumpers reduce friction while absorbing impact force by up to 70%. This means they can handle your deliveries and heavy loads.
Do you have trucks with air-ride trailers and loading dock equipment like dock levelers? Then Steel-faced dock bumpers like the B4520-11-SF is what you need. This model will not break down under everyday contact and stressors. They are designed to absorb impact while reducing and handling friction too. This makes them perfect for docks that have up and down movement from common equipment and typical setups.
Unlike most steel-faced models the B4520-11-SF is a vertical dock bumper with 20″ of vertical coverage. This model uniquely spans the gap for docks, like many around the country, with varying truck height because of different delivery scenarios. The B4520-11-SF is a high-quality Durable dock bumper and is made proudly in the USA.
