The Top 3 Reasons Dock Crews Love the Copperloy Yard Ramp
It’s no secret that loading dock facilities can become busy throughout the day. There are constantly moving operations of loading, unloading, and transporting materials. While it can sometimes feel stressful, there’s still room for optimal efficiency. With the right equipment and the right processes, any loading dock area can be turned into a well-oiled machine of loading and unloading. That’s where dock crews turn to a Copperloy yard ramp or portable loading ramp.
A Copperloy yard ramp has been trusted by numerous industries across the nation. Loading dock managers and employees agree that a yard ramp improves productivity, daily operations, and their overall budget. With increased productivity from a portable loading dock also comes improved safety. A Copperloy loading dock will protect your employee with its advanced safety features. Dock crews choose a Copperloy yard ramp specifically for advanced loading capabilities and safety features, as well as its versatility across industries.
A yard ramp’s ability to handle heavy-duty freight allows forklifts to move heavy materials safely between the loading dock and the back of a truck or trailer. More materials can be moved at once, rather than having to move individual items one at a time due to weight limitations.
The main benefit of every Copperloy yard ramp is they offer the ability to streamline your loading processes because they can handle intense weight capacities.
Copperloy provides two types of yard ramps: steel and aluminum. A steel yard ramp can handle anywhere from 16,000lbs to 30,000lbs. An aluminum yard ramp can withstand 16,000lbs to 25,000lbs. No matter the size of the loading dock or facility, there’s a Copperloy yard ramp for everyone.
Safety is one of the top priorities at Copperloy, for ourselves and our customers. That’s why we design our yard ramps with multiple safety components. Each yard ramp features an 8-foot level off, 15-inch lip, safety curbs, and more. Our yard ramps have an 8-foot level off feature to allow forklifts to safely enter a truck or trailer at a level approach without having to stop. The 15-inch lip is designed to firmly rest on a truck carrier body, dock floor, or platform. This also ensures forklifts have a safe and level approach.
All safety curbs on a Copperloy yard ramp are 7 inches high to help prevent unwanted runoff with a patented box frame. While efficiency is always important at a loading dock facility, safety should always be the #1 priority. When your employees are safe, they can work to their full potential without being concerned about their safety or that of their coworkers..
Applications of Yard Ramps
Dock crews choose a Copperloy yard ramp because of its limitless applications. Applications of a heavy-duty yard ramp include:
- Construction equipment, machines, and materials loading/unloading
- Flatbed truck loading and unloading
- Military vehicles and equipment loading and unloading
- Tractors, skid steers, and bobcats
- Heavy equipment rentals
- Car and vehicle ramps
Copperloy is proud to provide yard ramps to numerous industries and facilities across the country.

8-FOOT LEVEL OFF
This yard ramp feature allows the fork truck to safely enter the trailer at a level approach and without having to stop.
Designed to firmly rest on the truck carrier body, dock floor or platform with eight-foot-long safety chains.
Hydraulic hand pump design requires half the effort needed to raise ramp compared to other mobile ramps.
SMOOTH SIDE PLATES
High-strength steel smooth side plates and safety curbs are standard.
DECK GRATING ON YARD RAMP
High-strength steel grating bars are constructed for durability in the roughest of applications.
LOW END PLATE
Shorter than the wheelbase of most forklift trucks, front-drive wheels can reach high-traction grating, while rear wheels are still on the ground.
7-inch high curbs are standard on all Copperloy ramps.
A towbar is an option on both steel and aluminum mobile yard ramps.
18-INCH SOLID/PNEUMATIC TIRES
The solid/pneumatic tires are standard on all Copperloy mobile yard ramps and are ideal for all applications.
THE POSITIONING SLEEVE
The position sleeve allows the ramp to maneuver 180 degrees which reduces loading/unloading time and increases productivity.
Safer Yard Ramps, Safer Loading Docks
All Copperloy ramps are designed to ensure the safety of everyone in your facility. When you have forklifts loading trucks and moving throughout your facility, all personnel must work in a fashion that minimizes the risk of injury. Even with forklift-certified drivers, accidents can happen, so you do not want your ramps causing you any more trouble.
Copperloy’s single-acting hydraulic forklift ramp design uses a centrally located cylinder. This significantly improves balance and stability, preventing wobbling and tipping during forklift loading tasks. Features like the high-traction deck grating and the low-end plate ensure the forklift tires always have traction and never leave the ground. Most importantly, Copperloy yard ramps keep your employees safe and help your facility meet OSHA safety standards.
Save Money with Yard Ramp Rentals and Used Yard Ramps
If you ever find yourself running out of dock capacity on your busier days, you probably need a yard ramp to keep up, but that does not mean you have to sacrifice your budget for new equipment you may not use every day. Here at Copperloy, we offer yard ramp rentals that give you a temporary increase in your dock capacity, helping you get through those larger projects.
Are you looking for a permanent addition with affordable pricing? Consider purchasing a used yard ramp. A used yard ramp is the perfect middle ground between new and rental, allowing you to acquire the long-term equipment solutions you need without overspending. We offer fully factory-certified yard ramp rentals and used yard ramps, so you receive the same quality regardless of how much you can spend.
Pair Your Yard Ramp with These Dock Equipment Options
Portable Dock Platforms
With a portable dock platform, you can link your loading dock ramp to a standalone platform and create a fully operational dock in any location. This equipment is often used for parallel loading tasks onto trucks and docks in facilities with limited space or areas without an available dock.
Edge of Dock Levelers
An edge of dock leveler (EOD) is designed to bridge the gap between the edge of the loading platform and whatever truck or ramp is positioned there. With both mechanical and hydraulic options, our edge of dock levelers can shift vertically up to 5 inches to create a level pathway onto truck trailers and ramps.
Dockboards are another way to bridge the gap between trucks, docks, and ramps. These dockboards have lift sleeves that allow forklifts to accurately position them for loading tasks. With reinforced steel construction, dockboards are a convenient solution for providing safe passage for heavy freight-handling equipment.
In addition to our yard ramps and loading dock ramps, we offer a variety of lightweight aluminum options for specific loading situations. Some of our specialty ramps include van ramps, cargo ramp for van, stage ramps, moving ramps, and walkboards.
Benefits of Van Ramps
Van Ramps for the Entertainment Industry
Stage and theatre crews trust Copperloy aluminum stage and van ramps for loading and unloading heavy entertainment equipment. Our aluminum ramps are designed to be durable and versatile to meet your entertainment needs for years to come. Production companies, concerts halls, theatres, and stadiums have used Copperloy ramps for years. Even the MGM Northfield Park Racino trusts Copperloy stage and van ramps to get the job done!
Our stage ramps for the entertainment industry are made of high-strength aluminum and fine-tuned welded construction for maximum safety and dependability. When you purchase a stage ramp, you will be pleased to find shark tooth deck grating to create a slip-resistant surface, runoff curbs, capacities of up to 8,000 lbs., and a lightweight design.
A van ramp can be used by delivery drivers and professional movers to create a more ergonomic and safe environment. A stage ramp is beneficial for similar reasons-its portability makes it perfect for musicians who need to move their equipment from location to location.
Van ramps from Copperloy are heavy-duty but not heavy. This means they are able to carry weight consistently over a long period of time but they are also easy to transport. In addition to the two applications summarized below, van ramps can be used by professional movers and fleet service professionals.
Cargo Van Ramps Speed Up Delivery Productions
Did you know that a Copperloy cargo van ramp speeds up delivery productions while also improving safety? Delivery drivers have the difficult job of delivering countless packages a day on a strict schedule. When there are heavy items to load and unload from their cargo van, delivery drivers need an efficient way to move the materials while also protecting themselves. Copperloy provides the most effective solution: cargo van ramps.
Our cargo van ramps are available in capacities from 2,500 to 4,000 lbs., with widths of 38 to 44 inches, and lengths from 6 to 16 feet. We supply dozens of varying standard models to meet each of our customer’s requirements. Customers choose our cargo van ramps for their lightweight design and easy maintenance. Contact us today to purchase your cargo van ramp.

Dock to Ground Ramps
A dock to ground ramp is exactly what it sounds like. It is a ramp option that directly connects your dock to the ground, so vehicles can quickly and safely move between the interior and exterior of your facility.
This is not a permanent structure and can be installed and reinstalled at will, allowing you to move it to different areas of your facility to achieve the best workflow. Much like our yard ramp, these ramps come in a wide variety of weight capacities, widths, and lengths, so you can find the ideal fit for your loading dock.
Truck Wheel Risers
Life would be much easier if every truck that came to your dock sat at the same height, but that simply is not the case. Every truck carrier bed is different, but the edge of your dock can only adjust to so much even with an edge of dock leveler.
Truck wheel risers allow semi and box trucks to park on a slightly elevated surface, so the trailer levels out with the edge of your dock. When combined with our edge of dock levelers, these risers will give you the ability to accept trucks at any height. Copperloy provides other necessary truck and dock accessories such as wheel chocks, loading dock bumpers, and dockboard accessories.

From William M. Petro, President of Century-Fournier Inc.
I wanted to thank you for coordinating the pick-up, repair, and return to Metalico of the subject yard ramp in less than 24 hours. This enabled Metalico to continue operations with minimal downtime. Their management was very grateful for this turnaround.
We all want to sell our goods, be productive, profitable and be recognized for quality products and services, however, I believe the real test of a company’s fiber is how well it handles problems. JH Industries (Copperloy) has passed that test!
I’m sure there are many personnel that contributed to this successful repair. Please advise them how much we appreciate their contribution
