8-Foot Level Off
When designing a loading dock ramp, forklift access is always a top concern. Our ramps implement an 8-foot level off to make forklift access a safe and easy process.
This feature rests on the dock platform, floor, or truck carrier body. Our loading dock ramps also come with 8-foot safety chains to ensure the ramp does not pull away from the dock.
Our dock ramp’s single-acting hydraulic pump only needs half the usual effort to raise the ramp relative to other loading dock ramps. The pump’s new location is more convenient for operation and maintenance, while protecting it from dirt, debris, and other forms of damage. The handle can also be stored away if not in use.
Low End Plate
Each Copperloy loading dock ramp has a lower end plate than a forklift’s wheelbase. Therefore, the front wheels of the forklift can always reach the grating without the back wheels leaving the ground. This prevents any bumps during forklift travel onto trucks and docks and provides simpler ground-level entry.
Loading Dock Ramp Deck Grating
Our loading dock ramps contain high-strength steel. Our loading dock ramp’s grating can withstand even the toughest environments. The one and three-quarter inch spacing between bars allows rain, snow, and other debris to pass through. Furthermore, the serrated grating ensures traction in all weather conditions.
This 7-inch safety curb is a feature on all Copperloy ramps to eliminate the chances of runoff.
18-Inch Solid/Pneumatic Tires
Solid/pneumatic tires are other staple feature of Copperloy ramps. These tires do not need to be refilled, have lubricated bearings, and are virtually maintenance free.
The Loading Dock Ramp Positioning Sleeve
The ramp’s positioning sleeve provides 180 degrees for the ramp maneuverability, saving time and increasing efficiency. The fork slides into the sleeve, and the loading dock ramp can be repositioned with ease. All of Copperloy’s all-steel loading dock ramps implement the positioning sleeve. This sleeve is not designed for long-distance towing.
For our steel and aluminum loading dock ramps, we include a towbar, which attaches to the lower end of the ramp. Operators can tow the ramp short distances at a max towing speed of 5-mph. This towbar is not designed for over-the-road towing.
