Having the right type of loading ramp designed for the kind of vehicles that you will be working with at your facility can go a long way to improve your workplace’s efficiency. Whether you are unloading train cars or semi-trucks, it is important to be able to get your forklifts from the ground to the cargo deck as quickly and safely as possible. For this reason, we, at Dura-Ramp, design and manufacture various types of forklift ramps, including loading ramps for step deck trailers.
Step deck trailers are a great way to maximize transportation space available with a semi-truck trailer, and they are often able to be unloaded and loaded from the sides, negating the need for a loading ramp. In many cases, the materials being loaded require that a forklift, pallet jack, or other equipment be able to meet the height of the trailer deck. In such cases, having a loading ramp that is capable of meeting the height of a step deck trailer can be extremely helpful.
It is often extremely common for step deck trailers to be used to transport vehicles. For facilities using these trailers for the transportation of vehicles or rolling equipment, loading ramps can greatly improve efficiency and speed up the loading and unloading process, and they are much safer than individual wheel ramps.
Most step deck trailers have a lower deck height than other types of semi-truck trailers. For this reason, if you need a loading ramp specifically for step deck trailers, it is best to get one custom designed. A custom loading ramp will be ideally suited to meet your needs and specifications, and they can be outfitted with a number of accessories to make your job safer and easier.
