American Made Loading Platform

Copperloy strives to support the troops with made-in USA products, built to last and keep our soldiers safe no matter what comes their way. Our state-of-the-art facility in Twinsburg, Ohio is one of a kind.

Whether your base of operations is located in an out-of-the-way area in Texas or near a big city in Pennsylvania, Copperloy’s has distribution centers throughout the continental US that can help you find the loading dock equipment you need to increase efficiency and safety.

You’ll get quick and convenient access to loading platforms, portable loading docks, edge-of-dock levelers and other custom-fabricated equipment through our national distribution network.

Features of Copperloy’s State of the Art Portable Loading Docks

  • 6″ portable loading dock safety curbs to prevent accidental runoff. Exclusive hollow section design and proprietary box frame construction take the stress of heavy loads and the extra strain of cargo breakout.
  • A mobile loading platform from Copperloy is constructed of electro-forged serrated steel for superior strength. Grating bearing bars are 1-3/4″″ thick. These bars are designed to offer extra durability in the roughest of applications. Bars are spaced 1″ apart to resist clogging of debris and to ensure an all-weather, high-traction running surface.
  • Part of making a platform portable is creating easy ways to move it! Lift loops are provided for easy handling and repositioning of the loading platforms with a forklift.
  • Steel Platforms come in capacities up to 30,000 pounds and lengths reaching 12 feet. Steel platforms are heavier and require a forklift to move, but have higher capacities. Contact the factory for portable steel platform specifications.
  • Handrails can be added to any platform at any length required. Our 42-inch high split handrail is constructed in all steel.

With an in-house engineering team, Copperloy offers tailor-made temporary platforms for any unique problem or specification.
