Loaded Aluminum Dock Plate Ideal for Route Delivery and Light Product Distributors
FORT WORTH, TX – August 6, 2009 – Bluff Manufacturing, Inc. (www.bluffmanufacturing.com), a leading designer and producer of high quality dock, warehouse and safety equipment since 1968, is now offering its spring-loaded aluminum dock plate to all customers. Manufactured and tested in compliance with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) MH30.2 standard, the spring-loaded dock plate is available for next day delivery throughout the U.S.
Originally designed for a national snack food company with in-house distribution, the spring-loaded aluminum dock plate is top-of-dock mounted with dual-spring lift assist, available in two capacity ranges and the machine-beveled deck edges allow for smooth transition. The spring-loaded aluminum dock plate is ideally suited for route delivery systems and lightweight products that require only hand trucks or dollies, such as bakery, beverage and snack distribution.
According to Clark Smith, president of Bluff Manufacturing, the company custom-made the spring-loaded aluminum dock plate for the large snack food maker several years ago. After recognizing other applications, the decision was made to offer the product to the open market.
“All of our aluminum dock plates offer a quick, low-cost solution to bridging the gap between trucks, trailers and a loading dock,” explains Smith. “The spring-loaded aluminum dock plate differs from similar products in that it is designed especially for facilities with predictable docks and fleet vehicles.”
