Portable Dock Plates

Benefits of Portable Dock Plates

Portable Loading Dock Plates provide safe trailer loading and unloading where typical dock plates or dock levelers cannot be used, which help bridge the gap between the dock and the trailer. These plates, or dock boards, can be transported to remote places, and easily set up to provide a smooth transfer surface from trailer to dock.

What are Yard Ramps

Yard ramps help bridge the gap between a trailer or shipping container and loading dock so loads can be moved safely and efficiently over loading dock gaps, curbs, and other obstacles. These dock plates help create a smooth transition for manual pallet jacks, hand trucks, and foot traffic.

Choosing the Right Dock Plate or Ramp

Barron Equipment has a variety of options for dock plates and ramps. The right product will depend on the application for the product. Will large loads be moved repetitively throughout the day across the dock plate? Will there be a fork truck or pallet jack crossing over the dock plate? Or will just hand trucks or dollies be used? What is the size of the gap between the building and the trailers? These are all questions that will need to be answered when choosing the proper dock plate or ramp.
