Simplifying situations where vehicles travel from grade level to dock height is easy with Copperloy’s dock-to-ground ramps. In contrast to portable yard ramps, these dock ramps can be used in fixed loading locations for long-term loading and unloading operations. Furthermore, because the ramp goes only from dock height to ground, the hydraulic pump and pneumatic tires are no longer necessary. Customers can also request custom ramps to meet their facilities unique loading dock specifications:
- Versatility: Copperloy ramps provide widths up to 118 inches and weight capacities up to 30,000 pounds. This allows them to work in almost any application. Furthermore, unlike concrete loading ramps, Copperloy’s dock ramps can be moved when necessary.
- Low Maintenance: These ramps need very little cleaning and repair. They can be installed quickly and stored easily, making it the perfect piece of loading dock equipment.
- Safe Handling: To prevent the ramp from sliding off the dock ledge during operation, safety chains and brackets are a staple feature.
- Durability: Copperloy designs their ramps for durability and longevity. They are capable of withstanding virtually constant use at heavy capacities.
- Low-End Plate and Safety Curb: Forklift access is a historically troublesome issue. Copperloy has worked excessively to address this issue and this dedication has given them impeccable results. The low-end plate and safety curb significantly increase safety and functionality. The endplate is much shorter than a forklift’s wheelbase, allowing the front wheels to reach the grating while the back wheels remain on the ground. The 7-inch safety curb exists to prevent runoff. When combined, these two features substantially improve loading and unloading with a forklift.
