Building protection is the sole purpose of a loading dock bumper installation. Taking into account the impact forces potentially at your dock will mean less force exerted on building walls and foundations. Impact force is a crucial component of building protection. Having the right configuration, material and bumper type can go to great lengths to protect your building and avoid damage to your buildings foundations.
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
-Henry David Thoreau
