Serrated grating provides excellent traction and the open design prevents buildup of water, snow, oil, grease and miscellaneous debris. The lower end approach plate provides maximum support and smooth transition onto the ramp grating surface.
- Heavy-duty formed steel side girders provide main load-bearing capability
- Steel side girders welded to steel Z members form a superior frame
Multiple Z cross members are welded to the side girders, then self-cleaning steel grating is welded to the Z members to form a one-piece unitized yard ramp.
Standard safety chains hold yard ramps securely to the trailer or dock.
The optional towbar features a fast-locking, easy hook-up to yard ramps and makes towing over long distances practical. A quick disconnect feature improves handling efficiency.
