If you don’t have a loading dock installed at your workplace, or if your loading dock just isn’t big enough, don’t despair! At HOF Equipment Company, we offer a wide range of walk ramps which are ideal for loading and unloading from trucks, trailers, containers and vans, and are lightweight and easy to use. Aluminum walk ramps are corrosion-resistant and lightweight, making them easy to transport and install. Fiberglass walk ramps are extra heavy duty for use in loading and unloading.
How to use Walk Ramps
Walk Ramps are so called because they are designed only for use with hand-held machinery such as hand trucks or hand carts. They are not strong enough to hold fork trucks or ride-on machinery. Walk ramps connect with the trailer either by overlapping, resting on the truck bed, or by using strong hooks which mount to truck extensions. Safety curbs on each side of the trailer walk ramp ensure that workers are in complete safety. We also have walk ramps with handrails, for extra worker security and comfort. One of our most versatile aluminum walk ramps includes a steel pocket frame which mounts to the underneath of a truck, allowing the walk ramp to be permanently stored under the truck, and can be pulled out when needed. Most models of aluminum walk ramps have grip-strut surfaces which allow debris, water, snow or dust to fall through the surface, keeping the walkway clear for workers to use.
Purchasing a walk ramp could be an easy way to increase your productivity without having to extend your loading dock facilities. They could also be a quick way to deal with temporary periods of extra demand. Browse our selection of walk ramps online today, and call 888-990-1150 if you need extra information or advice.
