Loading dock ramp is set in place at concrete or portable steel loading dock when it is unloaded from the trailer. It is secured to the dock by chains or optional dock chain brackets. That’s it, your Door and Dock System loading dock ramp is ready to use. Steel grating with the bearing bars oriented in the direction of travel gives maximum strength while the serrated top provides excellent traction while preventing build-up of snow, water, and other debris. Solid steel deck approach plates at both ends provide a smooth transition and maximum life for the ramp. (CAUTION: Some competitor’s unit’s use open grating at both ends… this allows the steering wheels of the forklift to twist the bearing bars causing failure).
