There are two common methods to install an Edge of Dock (EOD) to the front of the building’s foundation wall. At many loading dock areas it is quite common for a steel angle iron or a steel channel to be cast directly into the concrete at floor height. If the steel plate is there, then the EOD is welded directly to the steel plate. If there is no embedded steel angle, then the EOD is bolted directly to the front of the foundation at the shipping door. Once the EOD is in place, then the dock bumpers are bolted into position using concrete anchors to the foundation wall, one on either side of the EOD.
