Dock Boards & Dock Plates
Dock boards and dock plates are very different and often called by the wrong name...
- Dock Plates are never used with power equipment. They are ideal for handtruck and pallet jack, carts and other manually moved traffic.
- Dock Boards are for powered equipment such as lift trucks and stackers. The addition of structural components above the plate (curbs) and sometimes on the underside as is the case with rail boards gives them the capacity. They are best specified by an expert.
