Adapt-A-Ramp portable loading ramps remove barriers providing safe & easy access to trailers of all types, bridging the vertical gap. Adapt-A-Ramp’s has several exclusive design features that improve productivity and operator safety providing an excellent return on investment. All Adapt-A-Ramp products have been designed to a minimum 2 to1 load factor of safety. Adapt-A-Ramp’s are easy to set up and use. They're totally self-supporting and non-dependent on the trailer for support. This enables the ramp to stay in one place for trucks to back up into, or easily moved up to a trailer, speeding up operations and giving the ultimate operational flexibility Adapt-A-Ramp’s are equipped with a 10-foot-long upper level-off section allowing lift trucks and stacked pallets to enter or exit the trailer completely leveled avoiding the freight from hitting the top of the trailer. It also provides lots of level maneuvering space making it easy for the forks of the lift trucks to safely access pallets at the end of the trailer without damaging product.
Adapt-A-Ramp’s hinged lip plate provides a seamless transition between the ramp and the trailer providing ultimate operational safety. The hinge allows the lip to float on the bed of the trailer for constant level contact avoiding gaps. The full width hinged tail plate is 60” long and provides a smooth approach onto the ramp, maximizing stability Adapt-A-Ramp’s adjustable support legs allow the operator to easily level the ramp with the trailer bed with the turn of a crank, providing a safe transition on and off of the trailer.
Adapt-A-Ramp’s standard mobility package makes it easy to safely move the ramp with a lift truck or loader. Its heavy duty guard rails protect the lift truck or loader operator from accidentally driving off the side of the ramp. The guard rails are available in a large range of heights.
