Dock Plates and Boards
That gap between the dock and the truck needs a bridge for foot traffic, hand trucks, pallet jacks and forklifts. Those bridges come in the form of dock plates, dock boards and walk ramps. Dock plates are suited to bridging for the more manageable loads that can be handled with a hand truck or pallet jack. Dock boards bridge for heavier lifting equipment and loading machinery such as forklifts. We carry dock plates, dock boards and loading ramps from Vestil, Bluff and other manufacturers. As with dock bumpers, wheel risers and wheel chocks, products differ by dimensions, material, load capacity, compliance standards and other variables.
