Copperloy steel truck loading ramps are the answer for loading semi trucks, tractor trailers, and box trailers. With direct ground-to-truck access, our ramps make loading trucks much more convenient. Copperloy designs each custom ramp truck to maximize space, efficiency, and safety. We have developed some of the best truck loading equipment in America, offering a variety of unique advantages:
- Easier Operation – The implementation of the exterior hand pump and forklift access features makes Copperloy ramps much easier to operate.
- Faster Raise Times – The raising speeds of our ramps are two-and-a-half times faster than those of other truck ramps on the market.
- Less Wear and Tear – Unlike competing ramps, the positioning sleeve bears the majority of rotation rather than the ramp connection, which minimizes overall wear and tear.
- Greater Stability – We design our ramps with a centrally-located cylinder, which reduces the probability of tipping.

Truck Loading Safety
The Copperloy team prioritizes safety, above all. Not only does maintaining reliable safety practices protect employees, but it also helps your facility maintain compliance with OSHA laws and regulations. Check out some of our top truck loading tips below!
Properly Secure All Loads
Before transporting, it is crucial that all materials are secure to prevent damages to the freight. Unsecured loads create many hazards when unloading. However, you can ensure stability with load boards, vertical supports, road straps, and/or chains.
Be Mindful of the Loading Zone
It’s important to pay attention to your surroundings, and when large loading trucks are involved, it’s even more important! Stay out of the way, and remain in the driver’s line of sight at all times. Remember, if you can’t see their mirrors, they can’t see you. Don’t enter the loading zone until the truck has come to a complete stop.
Stay Aware of Machines While in the Loading Zone
Remain in view of operators and steer clear of machines while on foot in the loading zone. In turn, avoid injury or fatality in the event of equipment malfunction.
Map All Gaps and Drop-offs
Copperloy engineers many helpful tools to bridge the gap from one space to another. Such as dock plates, dock boards, dock levelers, and more. Additionally, equipment features lips that rest securely on platforms. Be confident in where workers step by assuring all gaps and drop offers are accounted for.
Lift with Proper Technique
Prevent accidents and injuries by properly lifting when unloading. Lifting with your legs takes the tremendous strain off of the back muscles and keeps the object close to you while carrying. This technique offers more control and proper balance.
There you have it! Practice these simple tips to avoid accidents, injuries, and fatalities.
