We recommend that your custom width be at least 0.70m larger than your load width. Ideally, for workers’ safety, your loading bridge should be the same width of the transport vehicle's load width.
These ramps come with rest on connections – simply position your bridge between the transport vehicle deck and your loading surface (such as a loading bay) and go! All you need to ensure is that the rest on connections must rest against the load platform and transport vehicle deck for at least 0.10 m.
Lastly, ensure that the slope between the two surfaces should never exceed 12.5%, or 7 degrees.
