Railboards for forklifts with unique safety requirements

At Copperloy, we pride ourselves not only on the quality, durability, versatility and craftsmanship of all of our products and loading dock equipment, but also on our ability to design custom products to meet the unique needs, circumstances and specifications of our customers and clients.

When ALCOA needed a new railboard built for their unique needs, we were excited to assist them with solving their challenge.

Like many companies who depend upon railboards and the constant loading and unloading of supplies, equipment and products from railcars, ALCOA had difficulty finding appropriately sized equipment. The railboard they were using was 100″ wide. However, the opening of their railcars was 148″.

This left a 4-foot gap in width which created a huge safety concern–there would be nothing stopping a forklift from accidentally or mistakenly drifting farther forward, and potentially falling into the gap between the platform and the railcar itself.

Luckily, Copperloy’s in-house engineering and custom fabrication team was able to come up with a fresh solution to the problem. We added “wings” to the car end of the railboard which extended its overall width to 202″, more than double the original.

With the wing extensions on either side, once they came into contact with the side of the rail car, they would prevent the forklift from traveling any further and creating that dangerous situation described above. It was also important to ensure proper smooth operation of the railboard itself. The wings accomplished this by allowing the lip of the 100″ board itself to project 9″ safely into the railcar.

Problem solved and mission accomplished. Meeting your unique needs, solving your problems, and increasing your productivity, overall capabilities, and your safety, are what we’re all about.

Our ability to create custom material handling equipment like this railboard for ALCOA is one of the many differentiating factors between Copperloy and the competition. With more than 60 years of experience, and with everything proudly designed and made in the USA, Copperloy is the leader for material handling and loading dock equipment with good reason.

Copperloy participating at Terminal Properties Exchange (TPE) 2013

Copperloy is happy to announce that we will be attending the upcoming TPE in Captiva, Florida. The Terminal Properties steel dock board with aluminum sidesExchange will be taking place this year from May 12-15, and is one of the largest annual events of its kind for the freight industry. As a leading provider of material handling and loading dock equipment to the industry, we will be showcasing a variety of our versatile and innovative solutions at the TPE.

We have been serving the logistics and freight industries for more than 60 years, providing a wide range of products and solutions. Everything we produce is proudly made in the USA, and with an expert in-house team of engineers, we can custom design and manufacture tailor-made solutions for companies with varying needs and unique or hard to match specifications and circumstances.

With the US economy being so reliant on the logistics and freight industries, just about anything which is purchased across the country spent some time on a truck, and that means that a Copperloy product helped along the way. Through our decades of experience, we understand the challenges of the freight industry. This firsthand knowledge is one of the many reasons that leading freight carriers and brands continue to work exclusively with us.

Of course, anyone who has been in this or similar fields before knows that one of the major hassles of logistics and freight are the inconsistent measurements and specifications of different trucks and other gear and equipment, and the burden this places on freight terminals and their employees. And this is exactly where and how our products come to the rescue.

We’re a leading provider of edge of dock levelers, providing a service range of 5 inches above and 5 inches below the dock, offering amazing flexibility. Our edge of dock levelers are offered with various gross weight capacities, and in all common sizes and specifications, and offer quick and easy operation with the dual extension spring lift assist. They are built to last, require little to no maintenance, and can be equipped with push button operation and hydraulic lift functionality.

We also provide a huge range of dock ramps, including dock to ground ramps, and portable yard ramps that help facilities maximize their space and efficiency. In addition, Copperloy also produces a wide range of other material handling equipment. This includes dock boards, dock plates, dock lifts and lift tables, portable platforms, and on down the line.
