Aluminum Loading Dock Plates

Loading Dock Plates Can Save You Time & MoneyAluminum loading dock plates connect dock floors to the back floors of trailers and offer a safe, economical way to load and unload trucks.  They have safety curbs on either side of the ramp that prevent material handling tools from rolling off the sides.  Aluminum dock boards offer a lightweight, yet sturdy bridge between dock and truck and are manufactured in full compliance with all OSHA regulations.  They are a must have for every shipping and receiving department.

The size of your dock plate will depend on the height differential between trailer and the dock itself, and the width and axle capacity of your forklift, pallet rack, hand truck, or platform truck.
