Product Info

Aluminum Dockplates

  • Recommended for non-powered loading applications
  • Pallet trucks, carts, and two-wheelers ride smoothly over the machine-beveled deck edges
  • Resilient aluminum plate material offers 22% higher strength and hardness than conventional materials
  • Durable steel legs are bolted to the aluminum deck for extra strength and rigidity
  • Deck surface features a special non-slip diamond traction-grip tread
  • 11° bend provides a safe smooth transition into most trailers
  • Available with 3/8” or 1/2” thick plate (see chart)

 

A. CAPACITY = (EQUIPMENT WEIGHT) (LOAD WEIGHT) x (SINGLE-AXLE RATING)

CAPACITY is based upon the heaviest type of equipment used plus the maximum load carried times the single axle rating of total load. Dynamic loading, driver tendencies, speed and frequency of use must be considered. Steel (TS-series) dockboards recommended for high use docks.

EQUIPMENT SINGLE AXLE RATING OF TOTAL LOAD
TWO-WHEEL HAND TRUCKS 100%
FOUR-WHEEL PLATFORM TRUCK - (NON-TILT) 50%
PALLET TRUCKS - HAND 75%
PALLET TRUCKS - ELECTRIC 66%
PLATFORM (SKID) TRUCKS - HAND WALKIE 75%
PLATFORM (SKID) TRUCKS - ELECTRIC WALKIE 66%
FORK TRUCKS - ELECTRIC WALKIE 90%
FORK TRUCKS - ELECTRIC RIDER 90%
FORK TRUCKS - GAS RIDER 90%

 

B. PLATE/BOARD WIDTH = (LOAD WIDTH OR FORKLIFT WHEEL BASE) 6" (MINIMUM)

Width of Dock plate should be at least 6" wider than the widest load. Width of Dock board should be at least 6" wider than the wheel base of the forklift. (Good rule of thumb is to subtract 5-6" from dockplate/dockboard width to achieve actual usable width)

C. HEIGHT = HIGHEST TRUCK BED HEIGHT - DOCK HEIGHT

Use this guide for truck floor heights to determine the Height Differential from the truck bed to dock. (Numbers listed reference an empty truck.)

EQUIPMENT SINGLE AXLE RATING OF TOTAL LOAD
REFRIGERATED 54" TO 61"
HEAVY TRAILERS 51" TO 56"
HEAVY SEMI-TRAILERS 48" TO 54"
LIGHT SEMI-TRAILERS 45" TO 49"
LARGE SINGLE BED 42" TO 50"
SMALL SINGLE BED 30"
