Dock Plates are rectangles of steel or aluminum with some type of locking leg and either hand hole or handles to move them. Plates are NEVER for power equipment. They are ideal for handtruck and pallet jack traffic … manually moved. They offer the lightest and most cost effective answer to your loading / unloading problem.

Dock Plates – A lot of time aluminum makes sense because of the lighter capacity and the need to manually move the dock plate.
ANSI Standard – remember ONLY BLUFF builds dock plates that conform to the ANSI certification standard… read the ANSI story.
