Dock Plates

Dock plates use hand trucks and pallet trucks to make loading and unloading easy and safe. A dock plate bridges the gap between your loading dock and the delivery truck. These help simplify and add safety to the everyday process of loading and unloading. A Plus Warehouse offers a range of dock plate widths, lengths, and heights to make sure you move your loads effectively.

Dock Plates vs. Dock Boards

What’s the difference between dock plates and the heavier duty dock boards? Although both help with loading and unloading, dock plates are used for hand-operated loading. They are meant for lighter weights, meaning they aren’t built to withstand the thousands of pounds of weight that dock boards can support. Dock boards have curbs and are used with forklifts and other power equipment, while dock plates are best used with lighter, hand-powered trucks.  

Choose Your Ideal Dock Plate

Medium and Heavy Duty Aluminum dock plates are the standard dock plate product here at A Plus Warehouse. A medium duty dock plate is 3/8” thick and offers upwards of 6000 lbs., while the heavy duty is 1/2" thick with a maximum of over 10,000 lbs. Both are designed to sit flush against the dock to ensure your moving safety.  

Light Duty aluminum dock plates are 1/4" thick with a capacity of 500 lbs. or 5/16” at 700 lbs. Use hand trucks with these plates to get the most efficiency from them. Although they are lightweight, they are durable enough for long-lasting use.  

Aluminum walk ramps are ideal when your facility lacks a proper loading dock. These offer you a loading and unloading platform from the ground to the truck. Attach the ramp to the truck using secure safety chains and enjoy the stability of the ramp’s grooved plates for excellent traction. Choose from a wide range of lengths with several capacities up to 2000 lbs. for use with 2 or 4 wheel carts.  

Steel dock plates are OSHA-approved and ideal for hand-powered carts or 3-wheel forklifts. 3/8” and 1/2" thick steel provide you with the sturdiest dock plates and capacities up to 11,000 lbs.  

Curb ramps are the easy, lightweight solution to getting your hand and pallet trucks over curbs, those most simple of obstacles. Sturdy aluminum material and a 500-lb. capacity makes a curb ramp an essential item for your warehouse. They’re small and light enough to keep in your loading truck too!
