With the right portable loading dock equipment, a warehouse, shipping yard, or industrial facility can greatly improve its efficiency. A good loading dock can allow a forklift or pallet jack to easily access a truck, train car, or other form of elevated transport vehicle from the ground to move, load, and unload cargo. At Dura-Ramp, we manufacture all shapes and sizes of loading docks and ramps and we also create a variety of equipment and accessories that can improve the functionality of our ramps.
If you are looking to improve the usability of a loading ramp or dock, it is worth checking out the different types of addable pieces of portable loading dock equipment. Some of the most popular options for equipment and accessories available from Dura-Ramp include:
This loading dock accessory can help save time and effort when moving or setting up a portable loading ramp. The Electric Easy-Lift uses an electric motor to raise and lower the deck of your loading dock with the push of a button.
The integrated dock leveler is a piece of loading dock equipment that enables your loading ramp to easily connect with trucks. It features adjustable height options and rubber bumpers and is designed to replace the customary 6” dock overlap.
Transition plates are 16” flat sheets that are attached to a loading dock by a hinge. They span the gap between the loading dock and a cargo bed in place of the integrated 6” dock overlap.
If a cargo ramp is going to see large amounts of foot traffic, it might be worth installing a set of hand rails. These loading dock accessories add a level of safety to loading docks that would otherwise offer very little for fall protection.
Channel rails provide an upgraded safety system for the edges of a loading ramp. They are designed to replace the standard tube railing system and are able to stand up to the severest abuse.
