Ground-to-Dock Loading Ramp also known and dock yard ramps are manufactured in Los Angeles, CA. The Altam loading dock ramp is installed at a concrete or movable steel loading dock. By using chains, optional dock chain brackets, or anchored to the dock or concrete floor.
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.)
