For Light-Duty Applications! Not for Forklift Use.
Dock plates are the ideal solution of light-duty applications in both commercial and industrial sectors. Designed to close the vertical distance between the truck bed and the dock, dock plates help to provide a safe and secure working environment for employees.
Some of the applications and industries dock plates are perfect for include:
Dock plates are available in a selection of different sizes (from 36″ wide x 48″ long to 60″ wide x 48″ long) and thicknesses (3/8″ or 1/2″), as well as to suit a variety of height differentials (from 5″ to 11″), making it easy to find the perfect fit for your specific application needs. This type of dock equipment also comes in a range of different weight capacities (from 1700 lbs to 6700 lbs), providing strength and durability you can depend on.
How to Select Your Dock Plate, 4 Simple Steps!
Step 1. – Capacity. Determine required capacity
Step 2. – Width. Determine required width, add 12″ to largest item crossing the dock plate
Step 3. – Height Differential. Determine average vertical distance between truck bed and dock. (Trucks can be higher or lower than dock)
Step 4. – Relate these measurements to the table below and choose board closest to your requirements
