Vestil BTA Aluminum Dock Boards bridge the gap between loading dock and truck allowing a forklift to quickly and easily load and unload trucks. These heavy duty OSHA compliant aluminum dock boards have a 5,000 LB capacity, anti-slip tread plate deck, and a beveled edge allowing for smooth entry and exit. Locking legs hold the dock board steady during use and are designed to be slightly uneven allowing the dock board to sit canted for easier pickup by a forklift for transport. Welded aluminum safety curbs aid in preventing runoffs and provide a visible through lane for the forklift driver. Aluminum dock boards feature a bend that is 11° and 9" from the edge and legs that are 12" from the edge. Constructed of high strength aluminum for years of reliable service.
Vestil BTA Aluminum Dock Boards are built to order with an estimated lead time to leave the warehouse of 10 business days, except for models BTA-05008466 & BTA-05008472, which have an estimated lead time of 15 business days.
When Selecting A Dock Board:
The width of the dock board should be at least 15 inches wider than the forklift or load passing between the curbs.
When using a three-wheeled forklift, a dock board with a capacity at least four-times the lifting capacity of forklift is required.
