Our loading bridges come in a standard minimum width of 1.25m, but this can be widened to suit your needs – 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.
Our portable dock plates have been specially designed for industrial dock settings where efficient loading is paramount. A lightweight yet durable construction means these removable dock boards can be used to load the combined weight of pallet trucks and pedestrians yet are easy to move around and store when needed. You’ll find temporary dock plates are therefore ideal for dock areas with a smaller footprint or busy traffic where space and efficiency are just as important as durable loading. read more
