How to choose a Dock Plate:

Non-Motorized Use Only

Step 1 : Determine Width - add 12” to the widest load that will go over the plate

Step 2 : Determine Capacity - weight of pallet jack + maximum weight of items carried + operator weight
If the maximum load is within 50 lbs of the stated capacity, select the next highest capacity

Step 3 : Determine Length - required length is determined by height difference between dock and truck floor, use the table below

Note About Capacities

All B&P dock plates are rated at actual capacities, per Aluminum Industry Association standards. Some other companies rate capacities with a formula that considers the fact that only two wheels of the four wheel vehicle will be on the plate at one time. This can artificially overstate the capacities of the plates, creating a potentially dangerous situation. We state our capacities as actual, giving you an extra margin of safety.
