*note: For forklifts and other powered units please see our dock board selection.  For three wheeled equipment we recommend a steel dock plate.  Do not exceed maximum weight capacity per the

A. CAPACITY = (EQUIPMENT WEIGHT) (LOAD WEIGHT) x (SINGLE-AXLE RATING)

CAPACITY is based upon the heaviet type of equipment used plus the maximum load carried times the single axle rating of total load. Dynamic loading, driver tendencies, speed and frequency of use must be considered.

B. PLATE/BOARD WIDTH = (LOAD WIDTH OR FORKLIFT WHEEL BASE) 6″ (MINIMUM)

Width of Dock plate should be at least 6′ wider than the widest load. Width of Dock board should be at least 6 wider than the wheel base of the forklift (Good rule of thumb is to subtract 5-6′ from dockplate/dockboard width to achieve actual usable width)

C. HEIGHT = HIGHEST TRUCK BED HEIGHT-DOCK HEIGHT

Use this guide for truck floor heights to determine the Height Differential from the truck bed to dock. (Numbers listed reference an empty truck.)
