Dock Equipment

Docks are where your business keeps moving. Southwest Materials Handling, warehouse equipment in Dallas, provides the most innovative options in dock equipment including, but not limited to, steel and aluminum boards and plates, portable yard ramps and warehouse safety equipment. Not to mention the our wide selection of new and used forklifts in Dallas, necessary to move your product, effortlessly.

Dock Boards

Used to load and unload freight with a forklift at loading docks, Southwest Materials Handling offers a variety of dock boards to suit most purposes. Steel dock boards provide a safe ramp for heavy-duty dock loading applications and feature all-welded steel construction for capacities of 15,000 to 60,000 pounds. Aluminum dock boards are ideal for low to medium volume dock loading applications with capacities ranging from 10,000 to 15,000 pounds.

Dock Levelers

Dock levelers are the perfect choice when the original building did not include pit mounted levelers. Designed to correct height differences between loading docks, loading platforms and truck or trailer beds, the edge-of-dock leveler is designed to have a working range of five inches above and below dock level with capacities from 20,000 to 30,000 pounds. Dock levelers are for forklift truck use and not recommended for use with pallet jacks or stackers.

Dock Plates

Dock plates are rectangles of steel or aluminum with locking leg and either hand holes or handles to move them. They differ from dock boards in that plates are NEVER used for power equipment, but are made for manually moving freight with a hand truck or pallet jack. A dock plate is an ideal solution to bridge the gap between trucks, trailers and loading docks. They offer the lightest and most cost effective answer to your loading / unloading needs.

Yard Ramps

Yard ramps are a safe and cost effective answer to many loading dock needs. Made of steel and designed to facilitate traffic from the ground up into a truck bed, from the ground onto a loading dock, or from the ground onto a rail car, Southwest Materials Handling offers stationary, portable and mini yard ramps to suit all purposes.
