Maximize Efficiency and Flexibility with Our Mobile Yard Ramp Solutions!

Discover Altam’s premium selection of yard ramps, meticulously engineered for the demands of warehouse and industrial settings. Our yard ramps, also recognized as Portable Loading Ramps or Portable Loading Docks, present a reliable and cost-effective solution to a myriad of loading dock challenges. At Altam, we understand that the primary function of yard ramps typically falls into one of two categories: facilitating the movement of forklifts either up into a truck bed or down to ground level from the dock. Depending on your specific application, we offer tailored designs to suit your exact needs.

Our yard ramps boast maximum durability, featuring steel grating with bearing bars meticulously aligned in the direction of travel. This design not only ensures robust strength but also provides excellent grip, deterring the accumulation of snow, water, and debris for enhanced safety and efficiency. For seamless transitions and extended longevity, our ramps are equipped with solid steel deck approach plates at both ends, ensuring a smooth journey for your equipment while maximizing the ramp’s lifespan.

The Many Uses of Mobile Yard Ramps

  • Material Storage Yards: A very common use of yard ramps is in industrial storage yards where it is not possible to install a loading dock.
  • Relocating Equipment: Moving heavy equipment is another frequent use, whether it is for mining, forestry, oil and gas, construction, or other industrial sectors that employ big machinery.
  • Location: Ramps can be used in a variety of remote job site scenarios, not just construction sites. For example, they can be used for loading agricultural totes, military gear and supplies, outdoor festivals and concerts, and much more.
  • Dock Extension: Yard ramps can help temporarily expand loading dock capacity without requiring building when a facility experiences temporary volume surges or unanticipated demand.
  • Access for Vehicles into Buildings: On sites having both a factory or warehouse and a storage yard, yard ramps can facilitate the unrestricted movement of forklifts.

Depending on the type of use that the ramp will be used. OSHA Requires 42" Hand rails with a mid rail if personnel are using the ramp. Altam ramps come standard with 11" Run off guard which CALOSHA requires a min of 8" per CCR Title 8, section 3233.
To figure the usable width you must take the overall width of your wheel base on vehicle or forklift and add 24" overall width. This is required per CALOSHA. Standard usable width range between 73" to 78".
A level off allows you to level the forklift to the truck bed. This is determined by the forklift length + forks. Typically if you forklift length is 4' and the forks are 3' you have a 7' level off min. We fabricate between the most common "no level off to 10ft level off".
By taking the capacity of the forklift we multiply by 3 which gives us a capacity ramp required for your forklift weight. IE: 5000# Capacity forklift would come out to a 15,000# our models are designed for a min of 20,000# Capacity.
