I am female and not afraid to admit I might choose something to buy just because “It’s pretty”. So when the guys at work asked me to find a loading ramp to replace the dry rotted wooden one we currently have, I had no idea where to begin from size, weight limits, etc. I searched several products; loading dock, curb ramp, pallet jack ramp… and during my search I came across Guardian Aluminum Dock Plate. My first thought was “its chrome and orange! I want it!” But knowing there was more to it than just “pretty colors” I started reading the description and reviews on the plate. The size was perfect, the Slip-resistant, diamond tread surface was going to be a huge improvement safety wise compared to our little wooden ramp, and the plate is easy to move when needed. So, without checking with the guys at work, I ordered the 36” Guardian Aluminum Dock Plate and let me tell you, they were extremely impressed with my selection and this product! It is the perfect solution for what we need. It is of very high quality, sturdy, and “pretty”. :) The guys at work would highly recommend this plate!! Thank you!
Exactly what I expected from what was described on the website. Very heavy duty.
I recently purchased an aluminum dock plate to bridge a gap over a sidewalk discontinuity between a bridge and a sidewalk. The elevation discontinuity (which changes depending on the temperature due to bridge movements) was preventing proper wheel chair travel along this sidewalk. The dock plate was the perfect solution, bolting one end to the sidewalk and letting the other end free to allow the bridge to move as the temperature changes from season to season.
This ramp was worth every penny and in fact I liked it so much I bought two.
large enough size for pallet dolly and heavy duty enough for any needs i can foresee. it came promptly and was affordable priced for the size and quality of the product. The only problem was the bolts to secure the handles to the plate were square and the holes were round. After a phone call and a visit of metal shop i just hammered them into the aluminum plate as was suggested and it was fine.
We hand a truck that was 2-5 inches lower than our loading dock and this plate was the perfect solution. It is very high quality and sturdy. I highly recommend it!
This ramp was purchased to assist in our deliveries of Reverse Vending Machines. The dimensions available allowed us to choose the perfect size and capacity. Great product, easy to move and store when not in use.
We are very happy with this dock plate. we use had trucks getting in and out of the trailers. this is light weight but never bows when crossing. it was easy to order and we received in 2 days.
Fast delivery of a quality product. Could not be more pleased with the Dock Plate i purchased!
I bought this ramp to help a friend ..He sells wheel weights. The pallets weigh about 2500 pounds. His garage enterance has a two inch step. I left the handles off the ramp and it worked perfect The pallet jack rolled over the step with ease because of the tapered cuts on the high quality ramp. This is one great ramp !!
Received product quickly and Performs well
Great quality for the price.
1 downside: carriage bolts to attach handles require square mounting holes. Holes in plate were round. Had to file out the holes to get the bolts to seat.
