Tired Of Dealing With Loading Dock Drama? Then You Need Portable Loading Docks

Without portable loading docks at your facility, you’re going to deal with dock drama. Portable loading docks are used in tandem with dock-to-ground amps to act as mobile platforms that make loading and unloading a breeze.

If you process shipments frequently, you need to be able to create loading docks in limited spaces, or in spaces where no permanent facilities exist. That’s why portable loading docks can revitalize your shipping and processing capacity, by creating the ability to load and unload from just about anywhere.

Portable Loading Docks Will Revitalize Your Work Capacity

It’s normal to be concerned about making the investment in portable loading docks due to the cost of the equipment itself, plus any potential maintenance. However, portable loading docks are the most cost-effective way to add loading docks to a facility.

Consider the other methods for adding a dock space to your facility. You could invest in a construction project and have a permanent loading dock installed. However, this requires contacting a construction crew, finding the time to accommodate for a long-term project, and investing in the materials themselves. Plus, a permanent loading dock means you cannot move or adjust this dock if/when you need it. Portable loading docks can be moved easily and quickly, so you can get back to work.

Portable loading docks can also be used inside or outside, which makes them a versatile piece of equipment that’s adaptable to your business’ needs. If you’re tired of dealing with loading dock drama, it’s time to invest in portable loading docks.

Why Choose Copperloy For Portable Loading Docks?

So why exactly should you invest in portable loading docks? When you choose Copperloy for your material handling equipment, you’ll get products that are American-made and long lasting. 

Each of our portable loading docks comes with steel tread plate decking, steel legs, lift sleeves, and two movable curb sections. The platform curbs are a great way to ensure safety and stability by preventing accidental runoff. Plus, our hollow section design and box frame construction also eliminate the stress of heavy loads. Our steel tread plate decking is made from serrated steel that’s built to withstand wear from heavy loads. In addition, our decking also comes with bearing bars that are designed to offer extra durability. These bars are spaced out to resist any debris build up, and ensure the portable loading docks work in all types of weather.

Not only are our portable loading docs engineered for safety and longevity, but they also work great with the addition of other equipment. If you need a larger platform for loading, you can simply combine two Copperloy portable loading docks to create more space. If you need to improve functionality, you can install a Copperloy edge of dock leveler on either side of the platform to make the job as seamless as possible for your team.

All of Copperloy’s loading equipment is engineered to last. If you have questions about our portable loading docks, or any of our equipment, we encourage you to reach out to our team today. Let us help you run a smooth business with our loading equipment!

manual edge of dock leveler

With over 60 years of experience in manufacturing and selling material loading equipment, Copperloy has established a reputation in providing quality equipment that’s built to last. At Copperloy, we offer our customers the option of tailor-made equipment that can handle any unique challenge.  When it comes to our edge of dock levelers, this equipment provides our customers with a practical solution for loading and unloading trucks from most dock positions.

1. Ease of Use

Copperloy is the most trusted name when searching for an easy-to-operate edge of dock leveler, a steel  forklift ramp to get the dock height to the truck height. Why? It’s because we offer market-leading equipment parts, coupled with superior safety. Our levelers easily mount to the face of nearly any dock. And if that’s not enough, we also offer transition plates and approach ramps to further take the weight off your shoulders.

2. Manual and Hydraulic Options

At Copperloy, we offer a manual edge of dock leveler with the option of having a hydraulic power unit installed to it via a wall-mounted push button. That push of a button allows the unit to lift and rest heavy items, from 20,000 to 30,000 pounds, to the height of a trailer bed for safe freight handling.

3. The Utmost in Safety

Safety is the top priority at Copperloy. That’s why each of our edge of dock levelers are equipped with a safety maintenance strut to secure the unit, while performing routine maintenance. Speaking of maintenance, lubricating the hinges is simple on our levelers because they come with grease fittings.

4. Quality Engineering

Our edge of dock leveler has been designed and engineered using a three dimensional software package. Copperloy’s exclusive lift mechanism and spring assembly sets the board in place with a fraction of the effort needed to operate a conventional edge of dock leveler.

5. Long-Lasting Bumpers

edge of dock steel face bumper guardAnother area of importance at Copperloy is the quality of our leveler’s bumpers. The rubber/steel block bumper combo is often times the first thing to go bad in an edge of dock leveler. Several years ago, Copperloy began using a specially-blended rubber formula bumper that is 3,000 PSI. We truly believe this is the longest lasting – and absolute best option – on the market.

6. Durability that Lasts

Durability is another key component to a properly functioning and lasting edge of dock leveler. While most edge of dock levelers have some wear and tear at the pivot points, Copperloy’s pivot points are equipped with bushings to minimize wear. This is another area that sets us apart from our competition.

An edge of deck leveler isn’t the only piece of equipment offered at Copperloy. We provide customers with a wide variety of American made mobile yard ramps, dock-to-ground ramps, truck ramps, and forklift ramps. We also have rail boards, dock plates, and portable platforms. All of our material handling equipment is available to purchase, some even available to rent.

Copperloy provides only the best products on the market to make our customer’s loading and unloading experience significantly lighter. Learn more about what Copperloy can do for your unique dock and ramp needs by calling us today at 1­800­321­4968 or contact us by clicking here.
