Dock Plates & Boards
About Dock Plates & Boards
Dock Plates & Boards are essential tools for loading and unloading cargo in warehouses, factories, and other industrial facilities. They provide a bridge between the dock and truck or trailer, allowing workers to safely move cargo from one place to another.
Types of Dock Plates & Boards
Dock plates are made of steel or aluminum and come in different sizes and capacities. Dock boards are similar but feature additional reinforcements such as side rails, making them better suited for heavier loads. Both dock plates and boards can be used with pallet jacks, hand trucks, or forklifts.
Materials used for Dock Plates & Boards
Most dock plates are made from either steel or aluminum. Steel is more durable but also heavier than aluminum; however, it can handle larger loads. Aluminum is lighter weight but not as strong as steel; it is best suited for lighter-duty applications.
