Many competitors struggle to design a ramp with smooth and safe forklift access. However, Copperloy ramps designs entail key features that make it forklift operation hassle-free. For example, a low-end plate sits lower than the forklift’s wheelbase. As a result, the front wheels of the loading vehicle can reach our high-traction deck grating while allowing the back wheels to remain safely on the ground. By simplifying ground-level entry, this reduces any bumps and jolting that may occur when using other ramps.
HIGH-TRACTION DECK GRATING
As mentioned, Copperloy ramps use a high-traction deck grating. Made of high-strength steel, grating bars include 1-3/4 spacing between bars. In turn, water, snow, and other debris can easily fall through. This grating prevents buildup and provides high-quality traction in harsh, environmental conditions.
Safety will always be a key focus at Copperloy. It is standard that are ramps offer 7″ safety curbs. We aim to reduce the risk of accidental run-off and other loading mishaps with these high-performing safety curbs.
18-INCH SOLID/PNEUMATIC TIRES
In comparison to competitors whose ramps often feature dinky wheels prone to instability, Copperloy ramps feature 18″ pneumatic tires. We greatly reduce the maintenance that is invariably needed for tires and wheels on the designs of our competitors. How? Well, these tires are solid-filled. Meaning, there isn’t a risk of puncture or flat tires. Additionally, Copperloy tires feature lubricated-for-life bearings. Essentially, these ramp tires are maintenance free!
Thanks to our unique positioning sleeve, Copperloy ramps conveniently rotate 180 degrees within minutes. SImply slide the fork of a forklift into the sleeve and adjust the ramp to the proper position. Decrease downtime significantly and greatly increase overall productivity with this maneuverability feature.
A customer favorite, the towbar allows for easy transportation within your facility. The towbar conveniently connects to the end of the ramp and allows for towing speeds up 5-mph. This feature is not designed for long-distance towing. However, when it comes to quick moves around the facility, the towbar couldn’t be more efficient!
