Dock boards and dock plates

Information

Dock boards and dock plates provide numerous benefits

Prevent potential forklift runoff or tripping hazards caused by uneven ground for personnel. Dock boards and dock plates increase safety and worker productivity with respect to loading and offloading by creating a smoother transition from the trailer to the dock floor.

Dock boards prevent accidental runoff

Dock boards are designed to handle low-to-medium forklift traffic. They incorporate curbs which are bolted to the aluminum diamond pattern plate for increased strength while preventing runoff. The dock board’s deck surface comes in aluminum, steel and ultra-light material to provide a safe, smooth transition into the trailer. These dock boards support load capacities of up to 24,000 pounds.
