8-Foot Level Off
Accessibility and safety are central design principles of Copperloy ramps. So, we have included an 8-foot level off that makes loading and unloading with forklifts smoother and safer for forklift operators.
The ramp lip will rest on dock floors, dock platforms, and truck carrier bodies. Our ramps also come with 8-foot safety chains, so we can prevent your ramp from pulling away from the truck.
Our heavy duty truck ramps feature a single-acting, hydraulic pump that requires only half the usual effort to raise in comparison to competing ramps. The ramp is also positioned on the exterior. So, it is much easier to operate while having protection from wear and tear. The pump handle can also be stored away when not in use.
Low End Plate
Safety and productivity depend directly on forklift accessibility, so Copperloy ramps feature a low end plate. We have designed this plate to sit lower than a forklift’s wheelbase, so the front wheels can get to the deck grating while the back wheels remain on the ground. As a result, ground-level entry is easier and safer.
Steel Deck Grating
Our heavy duty truck ramp deck grating is manufactured with electro-forged, serrated steel. In addition to exceptional durability, this grating features 1/4″ to 3/4″ bars and with 1″ spacing. So, rain, dirt, snow, and other forms of debris will slip through, allowing the grating to offer traction even in turbulent weather.
18-Inch Solid Tires
Our solid pneumatic tires are a core feature of Copperloy heavy duty truck ramps. These tries do not need as much maintenance as air-filled tires because they do not need regular refilling. They also feature lubricated bearings, so they are virtually maintenance-free. Furthermore, you do not need to continuously make replacements like air-filled tires, saving you time and money.
This sleeve provides forklift operators a full 180 degrees of maneuverability, so they can efficiently reposition the ramp for each loading task in your facility. The fork simply slides into the sleeve, which allows the forklift to quickly move the ramp to its next location. However, this feature is not designed for long-distance towing.
This is another feature that improves maneuverability for our truck ramps. The towbar allows operators to move the loading ramp over short distances at a maximum speed of 5-mph in your facility. Also, much like the positioning sleeve, this feature is not meant for long-distance towing.
This 6-inch safety curb is another feature that enhances Copperloy ramp safety. We have designed this curb to prevent runoff for forklifts, so loading with forklifts is much safer. The box-frame construction and hollow-section design also minimize stress for heavy loads as well as cargo breakout.
