Loading Dock Plate

The Quickest Way to Bridge the Gap from Dock to Truck

Copperloy Dock Plate

The Copperloy loading dock plate serves the same purpose as loading dock boards. However, they are a more economical solution for less demanding applications. You can use docks plates in a variety of applications and industries. We offer both new and used forklift dock plates. You can check out the specs below to see which option is right for you and your loading facility.

What is a Loading Dock Plate?

Loading dock plates are used to make the connection from one area to another in material handling operation. The plate is a flat piece of metal that includes a slight bend for an easy transition.

Unlike dock boards, dock plates do not have curbs. As a result, this makes them more ideal for irregular or sharp turns. Additionally, the absence of curbs makes them ideal for loading with dollies and pallet jacks.

When it comes to lighter-weight applications, Copperloy recommends dock plates. Our dock plates are available in both steel and aluminum bases. The aluminum dock plate includes lifting straps for easy transportation while steel dock plates come with a one-piece lift chain.

If you and your team have been looking for a way to streamline light material handling tasks, then our dock plates may be just what you need. These pieces are useful for bridging gaps between a dock and trailer. Copperloy dock plates are useful across a diverse range of industries and applications. Count on Copperloy for reliable loading dock plate, American-made yard ramp, and many other equipment loading solutions.
