Stationary and Portable Ramps

Stationary steel ramps allows you to convert one or more receiving doors to a” drive-in-style” door. You now have an option of bringing forklifts down to ground level or bringing vehicles into the warehouse. This style ramp also avoids the construction costs of digging, the placement of concrete foundations, and is worry free regarding drainage around the building.

Our standard ramp is 30 feet long, this works with a normal dock height of 48 inches. The purpose of the ramp being 30 feet is so that it will have about a 12.9 % grade or be about 7.4 degrees this angle will make it easy for a forklift with a load to make the grade. The width of a ramp may vary but usually depends on application.

  • How durable are aluminum ramps compared to steel?
  • How long should the vehicle ramp be?

If the ramps are used sensibly, there is no reason why aluminum ramps should not last as long as steel.

For vehicle ramps Health & Safety recommend that no gradient greater than 30% (16.5 degrees) should be used.
