It is easier and quicker to replace damaged bumpers or studs fixed to a back plate compared to those fixed directly into concrete. This backplate has no galvanised coating so that it is better for welding to steel structures.
The quoted price for this item excludes any fixings which can be purchased at extra cost, see our Fixings section.
The back plate has 2 x M24 threaded holes to accommodate any of our 450mm rubber bumpers. There are also 4 holes for fixing the plate to the bay, 2 are 20mm dia and 2 are 28mm dia ( the larger holes are there to allow this part to be fitted with an angle bracket to take the backplate above the dock – see part A061 & A062 ).
