A ground-to-dock yard ramp rises from the ground at a straight, gentle angle and ends at a loading dock or portable loading platform. Ground-to-dock ramps are around 30 feet long, making them simple and safe to navigate with a fully-loaded forklift. A standard loading dock is about 4 feet off the ground, so this forklift ramp would have a 10 degree incline or less if the ground covered is flat or any amount of decline.
The ramp also features two solid wheels, either hydraulic or pneumatic, that allow the yard ramp to be easily adjusted. Chain brackets – loops at the sides of the ramp used to attach chains – are also available as a means of increasing mobility or securing the yard ramp to its dock. These ramps work best when firmly attached to a single stationary dock.
If you’re looking for a more versatile method of transporting goods from the ground-level to your loading dock, look no further. Handi-Ramp offers options for customers to purchase new or used ground-to-dock ramps. Alternately, businesses have the choices to rent or lease a straight 30′ ramp.
