LYNN, Mass., March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dock plates are an incredibly important part of loading dock equipment requirements not only for convenience, but for safety reasons too. A Plus Warehouse, a leading business-to-business distributor of locker equipment and quality industrial and materials handling equipment, now carries a wide selection of truck dock plates in-stock at their warehouse and ready for immediate shipping all over the country.
"With the use of steel dock plates or aluminum dock plates you can move your load in or out on a pallet truck, hand truck or platform truck more conveniently, without worrying about the gap between the dock and truck or a person straining with carrying a heavy load by hand," said Ed Stairman, president of A Plus Warehouse. "Without a dock plate your loading dock is just an accident waiting to happen; with a dock plate all manual lifting is generally eliminated, and the safety and protection of your workers is significantly improved."
A Plus Warehouse stocks popular-sized aluminum dock plates on both 3/8 of an inch and 1/2 of an inch thick tread plates. Dock plates from A Plus Warehouse are available in a wide selection of sizes ranging from 30" to 72" in width and 24" to 48" in length. They vary in height difference from 3" to 9" and in weight capacity from 1400 pounds up to 6500 pounds.
Truck dock plates are truly the most convenient, safe and easy way to access loading docks from trucks. The calculated bend in each of these plates allows edges to be flush with both the dock and the truck for an overall safer and smoother material transfer.
"Safety and customer service are always our concern at A Plus Warehouse," said Stairman. "We look forward to answering any and all of your questions and providing you with high quality dock plates and other material handling equipment as quickly as possible."
