Here’s one of our aluminum dock plates in action! We’re using it to bridge a gap from our portable platform to a loading truck.

People often ask what the difference is between a dock plate and a dock board. It’s actually pretty simple. A dock plate is a mostly flat piece of metal (there is a bend in it, you can see it in picture) that bridges the gap from one area to another. A dock board has sides, or curbs, that can help prevent run off. Both dock boards and dock plates come in aluminum and steel options. This is for durability and intent. Steel is much stronger so you can do things like drive a forklift over it. Aluminum though is much lighter and can be moved easier.
Our steel dockboards with welded steel curbs come in widths of 60, 72 or 84 inches, and capacities of 15,000 or 20,000 lbs. Lengths range from 36 to 96 inches, and height differentials range from 5 to 16 inches.
Used in lighter capacity applications where low height differences exist and safety curbs are not necessary.
Rugged 1/2″ thick steel locking legs attached with high strength, vibration proof fasteners.
Knuckle saver strap handle.
Ramp-Dock Board Combination
Available in steel or aluminum.
Used when a large height difference exists or low clearance equipment creates an excessively long ramp.
Dockboard section can be used independently.
From rail dock boards to ramp dock board combinations, we have a variety to choose from for all your material handling needs. Review our selection of loading dock boards and dock plates below as well as our product specification documents.
