Dock Plates are rectangles of steel or aluminum with some type of locking leg and either hand hole or handles to move them. Loading dock plates are essential for transport of goods from one level to another. They are also a necessity in any industry that uses wheels for product movements. Dock plates are the economical way to speed up truck loading and unloading (dock plates are ideal for low to medium volume dock loading applications.) They are perfect for the opening between dock and trailer to allow pallet or hand trucks along so people can move safely in and out of a trailer or from one point to another, especially when two points are at different levels.
Dock plates offer the lightest and most cost effective answer to your loading / unloading problem. Dock plates are a flat piece of metal with a slight bend for easy transition. Dock plates come in either steel or aluminum and can reach capacities up to 17,000 pounds.
