Project Description

(HRMP) 20Ton Modular Loading Dock Platform

The Hanmoke advantages of modular loading dock platform are considerable.  Not only do they improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your operations but should your company, for whatever reason, choose to move premises, you can take a modular loading dock platform with you.  This type of loading and unloading platform is also an asset of your company which can be added onto should you wish to expand your modular loading dock platform operations.

All Schemes Can Be Designed To Suit Individual Site And Unloading/Loading Requirements

Modular Loading Dock Platform Introduce

Modular Loading Dock Platform, sometimes referred to as freestanding loading ramps or Modular Loading Dock Platform, are one of the most popular types of portable loading ramps in The European and American countries. A Self-Standing loading platform is a type of dock ramp that can stand alone by itself, without the need to be supported by another piece of equipment. These types of loading dock platforms are the perfect solution for warehouses, retail distribution centres, forklifts, railcars and more.

The Modular Loading Dock Platform design and construction of freestanding loading ramps allows them to support a variety of warehouse applications. The Modular Loading Dock provides plenty of room for loading and unloading in busy warehouse workspaces. At HANMOKE, we construct each Modular Loading Dock Platform with the highest safety standards. The serrated steal bar grating, safety chains and 6-inch dock plates ensure that the freestanding ramps provide maximum safety.

Modular Loading Dock Platform Details

Many warehouses do not have a dedicated loading bay. In such circumstances, there will either be a doorway with a roller sectional door or external level loading area with nothing to bridge the height differential between trailer and ground.

Traditionally, options for turning such an ‘open doorway’   level loading area into a loading bay would have involved either building up a concrete platform to the height of the trailer or, alternatively, digging down to create a recessed loading bay. Both solutions, entail significant disruption and costs in terms of planning and civil engineering. Civil work is also not always a possibility dependant on building ownership and planning permissions.

Our solution to this is to provide a bespoke solution consisting of a ramp, platform and a dock leveler. By integrating these items, it is possible to create a semi-permanent solution that fulfils all of the requirements of a dedicated loading bay.

In addition the platform can be positioned flush to an entranceway beneath a roller or sectional door. There is no significant difference in terms of performance, reliability or health & safety to a traditional loading bay. The trailer pulls up; the leveler provides the transition to the platform; the forklift truck removes the goods along the platform, down the ramp and into the warehouse.

The schemes do not require civil work and are extremely effective, when compared to a traditional loading bay both in installation time, drainage issues and cost. When used in conjunction with insulated doors and shelters they also provide significant operational cost savings and energy savings by minimising the heat transfer between warehouse and outside.

The versatility of such a solution means that it can work equally well out in the yard as within a warehouse. The final configuration is dependant only on the customer’s specific preferences, usage and space constraints.

Modular Loading Dock Platform Advantages

Maximise existing loading facilities in order to gain the optimum mix of functionality, flexibility and exceptional value for money.

Create a dedicated raised loading bay without the need for expensive and time consuming civil works.

The semi-permanent nature of the system allows for greater flexibility, because they can be easily relocated if required.

Allow safe access into various types of vehicles including those where a standard yard ramp cannot be used.

Available with either electric hydraulic or manual dock levelers subject to power availability.

Allow fast and safe leveler engagement to maximise loading and unloading efficiency.

Ideal for consignments that need to be removed from the trailer horizontally, such as very long items, or during operations where pallets are stacked so high that the operators need an extended flat working area.

Manual handling is significantly reduced when compared to unloading and loading with a mobile yard ramp.

Access ramps available for rental separately to minimise initial outlay.

Can be operated by one person.

Bespoke design service to allow the scheme to be specified exactly as required, detailed CAD drawings and rendered images are included a standard prior to any production commencing.
