Dock Boards Help Speed Up Loading Operations, Prevent Accidents And Reduce Labor Costs.
The anti-skid diamond tread surface on these dockboards provides maximum safety. Loading dock boards have tapered curbs that help prevent tire damage. Curb provides full-length handgrip for ease and safety in handling. Beveled dock plate ends offer smooth entry and exit. Safety stop on underside of dockboard fits snugly between truck and dock so board will not move under load. These dock bridges feature an 11" entry lip and an 11 degree angle is supplied unless another angle of operation is specified. Meets OSHA requirements 1910.30(A). Dock plates can be reversed when truck is lower than dock level.
CAPACITY is the combined weight of your maximum pallet load and lift truck. Capacity is rated for a single shift with equipment speeds of 3 mph maximum. For multi-shift operations, 3-wheeled forklifts or trucks using paper roll clamp, please add 5000 lbs. to the board capacity.
WIDTH should be 12" greater than lift truck or load. The most popular width is 60". Usable width is 4" less than overall width.
Stackers, 3-Wheeled Forklifts and other Narrow Aisle Loaders should not be used on a dock board. Refrigerated trucks require special dockboards; please call for information.
