Product description

Provide safe and speedy access from a loading dock

Make loading and unloading from vehicles to docking bays easier with these safe and strong aluminium dock plates. Dock plates provide a simple and low cost solution for unloading goods from trucks and trailers by bridging the gap between vehicle and loading dock. Their use ensures that goods are loaded and unloaded safely and efficiently.

These plates are available in a variety of sizes and are simple to install, fitting any existing loading dock. Ideal for use with pallet trucks, sack trucks and roll cages, they can even be used to mark access ways for pedestrians. They have an anti-slip surface to ensure safety for the user.

The smallest standard size dock plate measures 915mm wide x 1,220mm long, while the largest is 1,525mm wide x 1,525mm long. Whilst the smaller plates are light enough for manual lifting, for health and safety reasons any plate over 25kg will require two people; plates weighing over 50kg will require mechanical assistance.

Selecting The Correct Dockplate

  1. Step 1: Calculate Height Differential Between truck floor level and dock. Note: Maximum recommended height differential is the maximum differential with the ramp at 7°, maximum possible is the absolute maximum the ramp will achieve whilst maintatining secure location/positioning in the vehicle. This maximum can be higher than the 7° recommended but it will take the product beyond the scope if its standard.
  2. Step 2: Select Dockplate Width What are you using it for, what width is required? Minimum width should be 305mm wider than equipment being used. Recommendations:
    • Handtrucks 2-wheel = 915mm
    • Pallet trucks & Platform trucks 4-wheel = 1220mm
    • Fork Trucks =1525mm
  3. Step 3: Determine Maximum Total Load What are you using it for, what load will it carry? Determines which plate would be best for you
  4. Step 4: Select model to suit your requirements from specification list. Plates can be manufactured to customers requirements. All dock plates can be manufactured with optional forklift handles for ease of lifting and positioning.
