Dock Ramps, Stationary Yard Ramps, also known as fixed Loading Ramps, are a safe and cost effective answer to warehouses without any ground access. Which require no permits! Our ramps can be used for pedestrian, forklift, or vehicle access. Give us a call to see how we can design the perfect ramp for you!
OSHA 1910.178(n)(7) addresses regulations for ramps, slopes or inclines that must be followed any time a powered industrial truck is on a defined incline. Climbing excessive grades can have a negative effect on battery cycle time, fuel consumption, component temperature, longevity and reliability of the machine. While the ability to reliably climb a ramp is important, safely descending a ramp when carrying heavy loads is equally concerning. The forklift must be able to safely stop on the required grade.
We design our units to be within a 7%-11% Grade which works great with gas powered forklifts. If you have a electric powered forklift the ramp may require a lower grade to function properly. If the height of the dock floor exceeds 6 feet, guard rails or other fall protection will be required. 29 CFR 1926.501(b)(6): requires that each employee on ramps, runways, and other walkways shall be protected from falling 6 feet (1.8m) or more to the lower level by guardrail systems.
