Dock Plates

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:

  • Warehouse applications
  • Shops
  • Shipping industry
  • Factories

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.
