3 Reasons to Use a Self-Standing Loading Ramp

Self-standing loading ramps offer the following benefits for facilities of all sizes:

1. No Additional Support Required

As referenced by their name, self-standing loading ramps are designed to be completely freestanding without the need for additional support from another piece of equipment. This makes them a great choice for a variety of work environments as they can be easily set up in nearly any location without compromising stability or safety. All ramps also feature easy height adjustment via a two-speed hand crank system, allowing for a precise setup without the need for additional tools.

2. Lasting Durability and Safety

Every self-standing loading ramp is constructed from 100% welded steel, ensuring optimal durability in even the most demanding work environments. Each ramp also features steel bar grating, safety chains, and 6” dock plates that are designed to meet all leading safety standards. This ensures that your ramp is always ready to work, allowing you to maintain consistent productivity for your loading/unloading tasks. In addition to durability, every self-standing loading ramp is designed to deliver optimal stability, minimizing the risk of accidents or other safety incidents.

3. Options for Every Application

Self-standing loading ramps are available in custom and pre-engineered configurations, allowing you to select the ideal solution for your facility requirements, budget, and time considerations. Whether you need a ground-to-dock ramp for your warehouse or a high-capacity loading ramp that is designed to accommodate larger forklifts and heavy loads, there is a self-standing loading ramp that is perfect for your unique needs. In addition to warehouses, self-standing loading ramps are ideal for distribution centres, agricultural applications, manufacturing facilities, and transportation applications.
