Aluminum dock boards are ramps that connect dock floors to the back floors of truck trailers and offer a safe, efficient method of loading and unloading trucks. They feature safety curbs on either side of the ramp that prevent pallet jacks and hand trucks from rolling off the sides. Aluminum dockboards provide a lightweight, yet sturdy bridge between dock and truck and are manufactured in full compliance with all OSHA regulations. They are a necessity for every shipping and receiving department.

The size of the dockboard you will need will depend on the height differential between trailer and dock floor and the width and axle capacity of your forklift, pallet rack, hand truck, or platform truck. To save yourself a step, simply call an Easy Rack specialist and provide this information over the phone. We will help you calculate the size of the aluminum dockboard best suited to your needs.
