Dock Boards and Plates

Dock Boards and Plates

Dock plates are steel or aluminum rectangles with a locking leg, handle or hand hole for moving them. Dock plates are used with hand truck and pallet jack and span the opening between dock and trailer to facilitate safe loading/unloading. Dock boards act as a ramp for heavy-duty unloading applications such as freight, they are similar to plates but with added structural support on top or underneath the board. Dock boards are available in steel or aluminum depending on strength requirements.

SPRING LOADED ALUMINUM DOCK PLATE

A Spring Loaded Dock Plate (SL Plate) solves a problem in some common situations. Many times a dock services the exact same truck or type of trucks several times per shift. If the loads are loaded or unloaded by handtruck, dollie or other manual methods the SL plate may be the answer.

The aluminum dock plate is fitted with a pair of spring loaded attachments that fix it in place to the dock floor. These springs allow the dock plate to be quickly and safely lowered into place for use. When finished the dock plate is lifted, aided by the springs, into it’s vertical storage position ready for the next truck. It is mounted top of dock so there is no major installation process. Most customers have the personnel and tools to do the job.

Diamond deck aluminum plate assures a non skid surface but can be further enhanced with optional 3M strips of adhesive grit material. Each Spring Loaded Dock Plate by JMH is built for the exact location and equipment serviced in the application.

The SL Plate is very site specific and a worksheet must be completed. Completion of this worksheet will allow us to specify the exact plate size, bend specs and spring weight. We will be able to quote you an exact price and delivery time within 24 hours.
