Bridge Plates & Aluminium Ramps

Bridge Plates & Aluminium Ramps From Dock Solutions

Where space is an issue or you need a solution to your loading bay that doesn’t require digging out a pit for the installation of a Dock Leveller then a Bridging Plate or Edge of Dock could well be the answer.

Manufactured to the same high standards as our Dock Levellers, our Bridge Plates can give you the same safe working loads as a Dock Leveller but taking up a fraction of the space. Both are operated manually with the Bridging Plate being assisted by a gas strut and the Edge of Dock being counterbalanced for ease of operation.

The Bridge Plates can be made from either steel or aluminium non slip plate and come in most RAL colours. Bridge Platecan be supplied along with a set of Dock Solutions adjustable neoprene dock bumpers and a Dock Solutions DS3000 retractable shelter. The system was completed with safety traffic lights to control the loading bay operation.

Why should I choose a Bridge Plate or Dock Plate?
This is a very cheap alternative to fitting a traditional dock leveller. It is relatively quick and easy to install, saving time and money.  Bridge plates capacity range from 1,000kg upto 6,000kg.  It performs the simple function of bridging the gap between the dock and the back of the trailer, allowing for easy loading/unloading.

The Manual Bridge Plate or Dock Plate is also very simple to operate, no buttons to press and no need to feed electricity onto the dock area to power it.
We’ve sold hundreds of these products to very satisfied customers – with a little care and maintenance the bridge plate should operate trouble free for many years.

A Bridge or Dock Plate can be used in multiple loading bay conditions. Below are examples of how a bridge plate could solve your loading bay problems.
