Yard Ramps, also known as Portable Loading Ramps or Portable Loading Docks, are a safe and affordable solution to a variety of loading dock challenges.
The majority of yard ramps serve one of two purposes. They let your forklift either up into a truck bed or down to the ground from the dock level. Which of these tasks you select to do will determine which of the designs is best for your application.
Maximum strength is provided by steel grating with bearing bars aligned in the direction of travel, while the serrated top offers good grip and discourages the accumulation of snow, water, and other debris. A smooth transition and the ramp’s longest life are provided by solid steel deck approach plates at both ends.
(WARNING: Some competitor models have open grating at both ends, which allows the forklift’s steering wheels to twist the bearing bars and cause failure.)

Loading Dock Features:
The Holland landing gear used by the Altam Ramp makes it possible to swiftly and simply change the ramp’s height, which ranges from 48″ to 62″. The trucking industry has consistently used manual crank landing gear, which has proven to be the most reliable method of adjusting the height of trailers and, naturally, our ramps.
