Truck Dock Board Benefits:
- Made in the USA
- Engineered for the toughest heavy-duty cycles
- Improve loading and unloading efficiency
- Portable with the use of a forklift
- Designed for electric powered and gas forklifts carrying heavier loads.
To determine the capacity needed for your board, use the following formula:
STEP 1: CAPACITY
Weight + Load x 0.9 = Capacity
Example: for a forklift of 11,000 lbs. and max load of 4,000 lbs., the resulting capacity would be 13,500 lbs.:
11,000 + 4,000 x 0.9 = 13,500
STEP 2: LENGTH
To determine the necessary length of your dock board is determined by the maximum amount height difference between the dock height and the floor height of the trailer(s) being serviced.
Truck Height – Dock Height = Max Height Difference
Example: if the Truck Height is 54 inches and the Dock Height is 48 inches, the Max Height Difference is +6 inches.
From here, use the table below to determine the dock board length.
But what if the Truck Height is lower than the Dock Height? In that case, you have two options.
- The dock board (with chains instead of lift loops) must be used in reverse, with the board will be in the truck and the lip on the dock.
- Raise the truck bed with wheel risers.
STEP 3: WIDTH
Copperloy recommends a minimum width of 60 inches for dock boards that will be used with forklifts.
