We work to maintain our spot as a leading manufacturer of aluminum loading ramps and loading dock equipment. Our aluminum loading ramps offer the ability to maximize space, safety, and efficiency with ease. Here at Copperloy, we understand that safety and productivity are two of the most important aspects of freight-loading operations. As a result, we engineer our equipment to meet the needs of both ramp operators and maintenance staff. Our one-cylinder ramp design uses markedly less pressure to raise up than traditional loading ramps. Furthermore, this design has resulted in a number of other benefits:
Easier operation – With the hydraulic hand pump on the outside, both operation and maintenance are much simpler.
Faster raise times – Copperloy ramps raise two and half times faster than competing products.
Less wear and tear – Rather than on the ramp’s connection, rotation is focused on the ramp’s position sleeve to reduce overall wear and tear.
Greater stability – The centrally-located cylinder eliminates the chances of tipping and instability.
Key Features | Aluminum Loading Ramps
8-Foot Level Off
Copperloy considers forklift accessibility and safety to be a serious concern in the design of aluminum loading ramps. As a result, we began implementing the 8-foot level off to provide forklifts with smooth access to loading ramps.
This feature rests on the body of the truck or the dock’s floor or platform. In addition, we include 8-foot safety chains to prevent the ramp from pulling away from the dock of truck.
Copperloy loading ramps only require half the usual effort to operate with the help of our single-acting hydraulic hand pump. The pump is located conveniently for both operation and maintenance. Furthermore, its new location protects it from dirt and other possible damage. The handle can also be removed and stored away when not in use.
Low End Plate
While other ramps on the market struggle to make forklift access smooth and safe, Copperloy ramps include features to improve forklift operation. Our low end plate sits lower than a forklift’s wheelbase; therefore, the forklift’s front wheels can reach the grating while the back wheels remain safely on the ground. This eliminates any bumps that would occur on other ramps and simplifies ground-level entry.
High-Traction Deck Grating
Our aluminum loading ramps contain high strength materials. Each ramp’s deck grating can withstand intense environmental conditions. With one and three-quarter inch spaces between the bars, rain, snow, and other debris fall right through, preventing buildup. The serrated grating also maintains high traction in all weather conditions.
The 7-inch curb is a staple feature on Copperloy ramps that prevents runoff.
18-Inch Solid/Pneumatic Tires
Solid/pneumatic tires significantly reduce maintenance needs for loading ramps. Our tires offer lubricated bearings and do not need to be refilled. Thus, Copperloy ramp tires are virtually maintenance free.
Our aluminum loading ramps can rotate 180 degrees thanks to the positioning sleeve. A forklift simply has to slide the fork into the sleeve and reposition the ramp wherever necessary within the 180-degree limit. With the feature, you can decrease downtime substantially and increase overall productivity. The positioning sleeve is not designed for over the road or long-distance towing.
Each Copperloy ramp includes a towbar for easy repositioning around your facility. The towbar connects to the end of the ramp and allows for towing at speeds up to 5-mph around your facility. This feature is not designed for towing long distances.
Maximize your facility’s loading space with Copperloy’s aluminum loading ramps. You can create a loading dock anywhere in your facility quickly and easily. Attach the ramp to a dock or truck and send forklifts to begin loading and unloading. Our ramps have the unmatched capability to expand your dock capacity while maintaining high safety standards. Copperloy makes increasing efficiency safe, easy, and cost-effective.
