High Quality Steel:
Copperloy manufactures our steel ramps with A672-50 steel. This is essential for their industry leading capacities. A572 steel combines the perfect balance of strength, weight and durability. The steel is a ‘workhorse’ with ultra high strength and increased resistance to corrosion. The steel I-Beam construction, along with the curbs and plating give the ramps a standard a capacity reaching 60,000 pounds. These are a more durable, but heavier construction versus that of aluminum. Steel yard ramps are the preferred option with heavy weight requirements or when a slightly heavier ramp isn’t a barrier for mobility. Read more about the steel we use here.
Light Weight Aluminum:
These come with aluminum I-Beam construction for a lighter weight loading ramp. They do still have steal grating for maximum traction and all of the other options you’ve come to expect from Copperloy. Even with the lighter weight, it has a standard capacity up to 25,000 pounds. Although there is a lower capacity, there is a lower weight as well, so these are ideal when mobility is of the utmost concern.
Copperloy ramps have an 8-foot level off feature. This gives hand trucks and forklifts easy access onto trucks, loading docks, and platforms. These features make for a very stable yard ramp and are especially useful on mobile ramps.
The 15-inch lip is designed to overlap the ramp frame so that it rests firmly on the truck carrier body, dock floor, or platform. Our yard ramps come with eight-foot-long safety chains as well. These provide added security and increase safety. Chains join the yard ramp, attaching the unit into a safer entity when correctly rigged.
Yard Ramp Features
The hydraulic hand pump adjusts the top quickly and easily. This helps with aligning what you’re connecting the ramp to, whether it be the bed of a vehicle, a platform, or a loading dock. It makes aligning a very precise effort. Aligning and positioning them can be very difficult, but not with Copperloy. We turn alignment into a simple process. Even better, the handle is stored out of the way when not in use, which means it’s always in reach.
Smooth Side Plates:
Smooth side plates or curbs are standard. They enclose all working components, while also protecting them from possible damage from other equipment.
Low End Plate:
A 36″ ramp needs to be designed and engineered right! We designed an end plate that is shorter than the wheelbase of most fork lift trucks. This way, front drive wheels can reach high traction grating without a problem, while rear wheels are still on the ground. The plate comes standard with beveling from the underside. This helps to provide an easy and smooth ground-level entry. It also eliminates jolts and bumps as the fork lifts travel on and off the ramp, with or without a load.
High Strength steel is standard on all ramps. They help to make them more durable, stronger, and achieve a heavy-duty ramp that stands up to abuse. Grating bars are constructed for durability in the roughest of applications. Bars spacing is 1″ apart to allow snow, rain, and other debris to fall through. The serrated grating helps to insure an all-weather, high traction running surface.
Safety Curbs: Copperloy offers 7-inch curbs on all ramps. The side curbs help prevent accidental runoff. The patented box frame construction and exclusive hollow section design take the stress of heavy loads and the extra strain of cargo.
Pneumatic tires are standard on all mobile ramps. They are premium 23-inch tires and are ideal in most applications. All portable ramps are standard with air inflated tires, which creates a cushioning effect on rough or bumpy surfaces. We also offer the option of solid filled Tires. These are ideal in applications where sharp debris could puncture a tire.
The positioning sleeve is standard as well. If you’re interested in getting a positioning sleeve on an aluminum ramps, please call us. The positioning sleeve is used to move the ramp with a forklift. The sleeve is easily stored on the side of the ramp when not in use. It should be noted that it is not intended for long distance towing, but for moving short distances in a loading area.
As an additional option, we can provide a towbar. A towbar is a hitch that allows for towing the yard ramp further distances. The towbar attaches to the lower end of the ramp.
Ramps for Loading Docks and Warehouses
Loading docks need to be efficient and safe. Docks can be a dangerous place, especially when on forklifts. As a forklift travels over uneven grades, the chance for injury increases. Ramps that bridge the gap between elevations help to keep the forklift stable and everyone safe. With our array of dock boards and plates, you can bridge the gap, literally and figuratively, and enjoy a more productive, more efficient and safer work environment. Copperloy produces a huge array of dockboards and plates with different capacities, features and specifications. Not everyone realizes that a dock board or plate can be a ramp too. But even if there isn’t a height difference at the dock, they are still ramps and vital to safe material handeling. We offer dock boards and plates in both aluminum and steel with multiple curb options.

Click to learn more about these great ramps. Forklift ramps are great heavy duty ramps that forklifts can easy and safely traverse. What’s also great is that there are hookups for the forklift to move the ramp as well. Safety at a loading bay or yard is crucial.
Truck ramps will make unloading a semi-truck a breeze! Especially when there isn’t access to a raised loading area or when there isn’t room for the tuck to back into a loading bay. These ramps will increase efficiency allowing forklifts remarkable access into a truck and loading dock .
