Portable Dock Plates
Wilcox Dock Products
Dock Plates are rectangles of steel or aluminum with some type of locking leg and either hand hole or handles to move them.
Plates are NEVER for power equipment.
They are ideal for handtruck and pallet jack traffic … manually moved. They offer the lightest and most cost effective answer to your loading / unloading problem.
Dock Boards are like plates but with the addition of structural components above the plate (curbs) and sometimes on the underside as is the case with rail boards. There are different types of locking devices from fixed legs to drop pins or locking rings.
Dock Boards are for forklift and other vehicle traffic. They are best specified by an expert who can take all aspects of your application into consideration. With the correct dock board you can expect
SAFETY – LONGEVITY – PRODUCTIVITY.
Yard Ramps & Portable Loading Ramps
Most yard ramps perform one of two functions. They allow traffic from the ground up into a truck bed or from the dock level down to the ground. Which of these jobs you choose to do will dictate which of the designs will be most appropriate for your application. Dock-to-Ground Stationary Yard Ramps Dock-to-ground and back, normally indicates that either a vehicle or forklift needs to be moved back and forth. If the dock is in the 39" to 60"+ range then a 30' all incline yard ramp is the choice that makes the most sense. A width that allows for the equipment plus some maneuvering room and a decision about a few accessories and you have a perfect solution for your loading dock.
Our most popular yard ramp model for this application is our 16SYS7030NU (the NU stands for no undercarriage...if you don't need to move the yard ramp you can save the money). Ground-to-Truck Portable Yard Ramps Ground-to-truck has the same decision elements plus the need for a level off zone at the top before your load enters or leaves the truck. The length of this level off is dictated by your truck and load length (the most popular length is 6'). When you apply a capacity requirement of three times forklift truck capacity and a couple of accessory decisions your perfect solution becomes clear.
We find that our 16SYS8436L model yard ramp is our most popular.
