8. Features

Various features of our ramps include the followng:

a) Gussets are welded on the underside of the ramp to improve the strength of the tread surface plate
b) Raised Side Plates are welded to some ramps to prevent forklifts from driving off the sides of the ramp
c) Securing loops at the container end enable the use of safety chains to prevent the ramp from being dislodged or slipping away from its position against the container edge
d) Lifting points enable a forklift to lift, transport and place the ramp in to position at the entrance of the container. A variety exist including flip-up tine brackets, front cut-outs and side entry channels. Some ramps have multiple lifting points for added convenience and flexibility.
e) Two-Piece Folding Ramps enable this longer ramp to be folded and made more compact for transport and storage. Hand grip loops on the side of front footing folding piece are provided for this purpose.
f) Top Entry Lips are angled to enable a smooth transition from the ramp to the internal base of the container. Another feature of this Top Entry Lip is that it is self-levellng
g) Horizontal Ramp Sections exist on our longer ramps and enable easier retrieval and placement of pallets at the very front of the container. Typically pallets close to the container doors are harder to access with a sloped ramp as the forklift’s tines will also be on an angle whilst the forklift is on the ramp unless the machine is fitted with a mast tilt
h) Self Levelling Lip feature allows for full load capacity when on slightly uneven ground
