Dock plates vs. Dock boards

If you are unsure of how to use an industrial dock plate or whether it is right for your facility, try comparing it to Copperloy dock boards. Choosing the right equipment depends on how your facility functions.

Steel dock boards and aluminum dock boards are designed for freight loading at higher capacities. In fact, they offer excellent forklift accessibility with various built-in safety features. Copperloy dock board equipment features either bolt-on steel curbs or welded aluminum curbs, so they can prevent forklift runoff. Capacities for Copperloy dock boards reach up to 20,000 pounds.

Industrial dock plates are similar to dock boards, but they do not come with any curbs. Dock plates can bridge gaps between areas in your freight loading facility. These plates come in both steel and aluminum constructions with capacities ranging from 1,000 to 14,000 pounds. Dock plates cannot offer the same capacities as dock boards because they do not feature steel or aluminum curbs.
