Durable Loading Dock Ramps
Freight-loading facilities all over the country depend on their equipment such as loading dock ramps to drive the productivity of their operation. Efficiency hinges on the quality of the equipment at the facility and is one of the most pivotal aspects of any loading dock. Warehouse equipment needs to be reliable, stable, and safe; however, if the equipment does not meet these standards, the facility cannot possibly maximize their productivity.
Loading dock ramps experience an extreme workload on a daily basis, allowing forklifts to load and unload from trucks and docks endlessly. Therefore, any successful freight-loading warehouse needs loading ramps that can handle the pressure of near-constant forklift operation.
Copperloy’s loading dock ramps lead the industry in durability. For over sixty years, Copperloy has been manufacturing high-quality loading equipment, and they have consistently improved their designs over the years. When compared to other ramps on the market, Copperloy’s are safer, more efficient, and more resistant to the pressure of constant forklift operation.
Furthermore, Copperloy manufacturers its products to have unparalleled longevity. The one-cylinder design applies much less pressure than two-cylinder ramps, increasing the lifespan significantly. It also helps to increase raising speeds and overall stability. These are just a few of the many reasons why Copperloy ramps lead the industry in quality, and Copperloy does not plan to stop improving.
Copperloy’s loading dock ramp can work in tandem with dock-to-ground or mobile ramps. In a situation where there is limited space, no permanent facility, or parallel loading on carriers, this equipment works exceedingly well. This material-handling equipment is solely for sale in steel, and their side plates contain A572-50 steel for increased durability.
Portable loading dock ramps allow your lift trucks to make right turns much more easily; furthermore, Copperloy offers customization options, so they can fit a variety of unique requirements. Copperloy has fixed heights from 42 to 57 inches and weight capacities up to 60,000 pounds.
Copperloy loading ramps also allow you to connect two or more ramps to form a larger ramp. All Copperloy ramps come with steel legs, steel grating for traction, two movable curbs, and lift sleeves for safer forklift access. Edge-of-dock levels are also an installation option for any side of the ramp, ensuring functionality with all your existing vehicles and equipment. Lastly, the steel grating bars do not need maintenance; they are designed to allow debris and water to fall through them instead of collecting on the surface. Count on Copperloy for high-quality loading dock ramps.
Features of the Copperloy Loading Dock Ramp
Copperloy ramps have many features that set them apart from competing products. Count on the exclusive 8-foot level off to ensure easy forklift access and the convenient hydraulic pump location for easy raising and minimal damage.
The Copperloy team also designs its ramps with a low-end plate and 7-inch safety curb in addition to the 8-foot level off. The low end plate is much shorter than a forklift’s wheelbase, allowing the front wheels to reach the grating while the back wheels stay on the ground. The 7-inch safety curbs function as prevention for the runoff. When combined, these features greatly increase safety and efficiency.
Many loading ramps have air-filled tires, which require consistent maintenance. This is an unnecessary waste of time and resources; thus, the Copperloy team designs its ramps with solid/pneumatic tires that have lubricated bearings. These tires are virtually maintenance-free and have nearly the same flexibility as air-filled tires.
Freight-loading facilities and warehouses that are looking for improvements in their loading equipment should consider Copperloy’s loading dock ramps. Their products will give you your money’s worth. Copperloy is home of the Ultimate Yard Ramp!
