At Dura-Ramp, we understand how important it is for our clients to have the perfect loading ramp for their specific needs. That is why we have been providing clients with customized loading ramps and forklift dock solutions for the past 20 years. All of our custom loading ramp solutions are designed to meet the exact requirements and specifications of each individual project.
The first step in our custom ramp solution process is determining the client’s specific needs, so that we can create a unique solution for providing more productive and efficient operations. In the case of our latest custom ramp project, one of our clients approached us about creating a solution that would provide them with more space when loading and unloading boxcars, as their current loading ramp did not have enough room. The client also found that they were having issues with getting their loading ramp flush against railcars that had objects protruding from them.
In order to create more room for the forklift to turn in and out of boxcars, during the loading and unloading process, our custom ramp design team created an angled extension piece to help level off the area. This, in turn, created more than enough room for the forklift to be able to properly maneuver. Next, our team tackled the issue of ensuring that the new loading ramp would remain flush against the boxcar. To solve this problem, we set the landing gear legs and mobile legs on the loading ramp back 42″. Doing so created more space underneath the custom loading ramp, preventing anything protruding from the railcars from getting in the way and slowing down loading and unloading process.
If you are looking to have a custom loading ramp or forklift dock made for your business, we can help. All of our custom ramp solutions are specifically designed to meet each client’s needs and provide them with a safe and reliable solution for getting the job done right. No matter what type of business you own or what you are looking for in a loading ramp, there is no job too big or too small for our team.
