What are Dock Boards?

Dock Boards

One obstacle businesses face with their loading dock is bridging the gap between a truck and the dock. Truck beds have varying heights and even the height of the trailer floor within a truck can differ depending on how much weight the truck is carrying. This means you have to bridge the gap and account for the height difference. Dock boards are temporary fixtures often made from reinforced steel that bridges this gap so that heavy machinery can easily move between a truck’s beds and your dock.

Our dock boards come in a variety of sizes to fit your facility’s needs. A dock board from Copperloy can help you maximize efficiency by allowing heavy equipment to safely operate onto a freight bed or box truck. Copperloy’s dock boards can be customized to match any weight specification or work with preexisting equipment and spaces. They also work great with our portable loading dock platforms!
