Aluminium Dock Plate

+ Add to Quote Request

Our Aluminium Dock Plate is a ramp that assists in bridging the gap between a truck or container and the loading dock floor. Not all trucks are the same height, therefore gaps can occur due to varying height differences from the ground. Dock Plates are a lightweight, quick ramp solution that assists in connecting the floor and the load height. 

Made from a strong aluminium construction, it is suitable for light applications and smaller loads, such as handcarts, pallet jacks, trolleys, dollies and foot traffic. With a simple and flat plate design, the ramp has a maximum capacity of up to 1075 kgs. It is not ideal for powered equipment, like forklifts, as this product cannot bear the weight. Stronger container ramps may be necessary if that is a requirement.

The Aluminium Dock Plate only weighs 45 kg and has carry handles, so it can be easily transported around an organisation. Locating legs ensure the plate doesn’t slip out from a container or truck.

Dock Plate or Dock Board?

Although similar in name, a dock plate and dock board both suit different purposes and applications. Our Aluminium Dock Plate is designed for lighter equipment and applications. It can also be moved by one or two people with its in-built handles. Alternatively, dock boards are suited to heavy machinery like forklifts, and are subsequently heavier in nature, thus requiring a forklift to transport them throughout a workplace.
