Span the gap between a shipping dock, and a freight truck trailer, dry van, or box truck bed. Dock boards connect a trailer deck to the dock surface for fast and efficient forklift or hand-truck loading and unloading of pallets and cargo. Multiple widths and capacities available.

Manufactured from heavy duty, reinforced steel diamond plate with bright yellow welded curbs, and underside dock supports for stability, Guardian steel dock boards are the perfect piece of warehouse equipment for spanning the gap between a shipping dock and truck. These dock boards have a 13,000 lb. maximum weight capacity (forklift and load combined) and come in a variety of lengths and widths to solve any loading needs.

These Guardian dock boards have a 13,000 lb. weight capacity and are designed specifically for forklifts which weigh up to 4,000 lbs. The high-visibility, bright yellow welded steel curbs on each side help to line up forklifts during docking. Each dock board also features two underside stabilizer braces that line up with an existing loading dock to provide extra stability and keep the board safely in place during use. Each dock board comes with a heavy-duty chain and nose-clamp lifting system to easily move the dock board to and from the loading dock area. Dock boards are available in a variety of lengths and widths. It's recommended to choose a dock board 12" to 18" wider than the widest load that will be on the board.

13,000 lbs.
We recommend a minimum product width of 12" to 18" wider than the overall width of the forklift used.
