Four Piece Hinged Lip Plate

The lip plate is attached with a full width seamless hinge and over laps onto the bed of the trailer allowing for a safe transition from the ramp to the truck. Ramps with a width of 102” or wider come equipped with Adapt-A-Ramps four piece hinged lip plate. This design will enable you the flexibility of accessing flatbed and dry van trailers along with containers.

Load Capacity

Our SHD series loading ramps have a load capacity of 70,000+ pounds and are designed to a 2 to 1 load factor of safety. Similar to all Adapt-A-Ramps, the load rating is based on 4 point loads similar to a vehicles foot print as opposed to distributing the load over the full area of the ramp.

This realistic rating assures that any point on this ramp will support the full load capacity.
