These economical steel dock boards feature all welded steel curbs, locking legs, lifting chains, and are designed for use with 3,000 pound forklifts (10,000# model) and 4,000 pound forklifts (13,000# model). To determine what capacity dock board you can use with your forklift you must take the fork truck lifting capacity times 3 and that will equal the capacity of the dock board required with your fork truck! The curbed dock boards are available in widths of 60" & 72" and lengths from 36" to 72". When choosing the width of your dock board, we recommend 12 to 18" wider then the widest load that will be on the board for improved maneuverability when loading and unloading. These steel dock boards provide a safe way to access semi-trailers or any other locations when using forklifts or dollies. Increase safety, product life, and work efficiency with these solid curbed dock boards.
All portable dock boards and plates are not created equal. Bluff manufacturing is the only manufacturer that has tested their boards and plates and has met the ANSI standard. This means they are in compliance with ANSI standard MH30.2.
