Heavy-duty chains for fork-lift moving
of dockboards. Quickly and easily
attached onto the dockboard curbs
with heavyduty steel hooks.
(Recommended for boards 10,000 lbs. capacity and up)
Aluminum Dock Boards
are essential for loading and unloading anything between a
truck and a dock. Our high strength aluminum welded on curbs
preserve the life of the dockboard and keep the board lightweight.
We don't use steel bolt-on curbs because of the characteristics of
aluminum itself. As the forklift moves over the dockboard, the base
flexes. With steel curbs, that don't flex, the attachment bolts become
loosened as the connections get bigger with the flex of the base.
Having aluminum curbs fully welded onto the deck allows the dockboard
to flex with the weight and makes sure the forklift stays on track.
This curb design adds to the strength and durability of the dockboard
and actually reduces the overall weight. Made from high strength aluminum,
our dockboards can handle up to 17,000 pounds. This means that the entire
load can be on the dockboard at once. Our actual capacities differ from
some competitors as they assume only two wheels of the load will be on
the dockboard at once. We've gone through our testing assuming the
entire load will need to be sustained, therefore including an extra
margin for safety.
