Our yard ramp is ideal for loading and unloading trucks where loading dock space does not exist or when you need to increase your current dock capacity. We also offer dock to ground or stationary forklift ramps, which allow for access to the loading docks and trucks directly from the ground.
EDGE OF DOCK LEVELERS
With either mechanical or hydraulic operation, Copperloy edge of dock levelers create a safe, level pathway for forklifts when loading and unloading trucks from various dock heights and positions.
Pit mount and surface mount dock lifts allow for loading operations where space is limited. Hydraulic lift tables offer a variety of different ergonomic solutions for on-site applications.
DOCK BOARDS & DOCK PLATES
Portable dock boards are designed to provide safe loading and unloading for heavy-duty loading tasks that require forklifts or other industrial freight-handling equipment. Copperloy offers both aluminum and steel dock board options depending on your application requirements.
The high-strength aluminum construction of our van ramps, moving ramps, and stage ramps allows for regular and heavy-duty applications. Standard capacities range from 900-4,000 pounds, and split or twin lock ramps have capacities up to 7,500 pounds.

America’s Ultimate Yard Ramp Features
Dock crews around the country prefer Copperloy yard ramps because they make loading trucks and shipping containers easier than ever before. Our ramps allow you to optimize your current dock or create standalone freight handling centers in any area of your facility. This allows you to expand your dock capacity at will and avoid spending time and money on moving your operation to a larger facility.
With a unique single-acting hydraulic design, Copperloy yard ramps are the quickest and most convenient loading equipment solution available. Our ramps also offer a variety of other safety and performance features:
8-FOOT LEVEL OFF
This 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.
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.
A towbar is an option on both steel and aluminum mobile yard ramps.
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 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.
Dock boards are another way to bridge the gap between trucks, docks, and ramps. These boards have lift sleeves that allow forklifts to accurately position them for loading tasks. With reinforced steel construction, dock boards 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, stage ramps, moving ramps, and walkboards.

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 ramps, 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.
Customize Your Dock Ramp
Having trouble finding a yard ramp with the right dimensions and specifications for your facility? Customize your yard ramp with Copperloy! Not only can we adjust our design process to meet unique specifications, but we can even change the style of the ramp to match the rest of your business.

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
