Bluff Manufacturing Introduces Aluminum Truck Dock Board 6/8/2010 New dock board features aluminum curbs and is ANSI MH30.2 certified

FORT WORTH, TX - June 8, 2010 - Bluff Manufacturing, Inc. (www.bluffmanufacturing.com),a leading designer and producer of high quality dock, warehouse and industrial safety equipment, is introducing its all-aluminum welded truck dock board. Manufactured and tested in compliance with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) MH30.2 standard and OSHA safety guidelines, the aluminum truck dock board is available for immediate shipment throughout the U.S.

As a special introductory incentive, Bluff Manufacturing is offering free freight from Ft. Worth on the following sizes: 10,000 and 15,000 lb. capacities 6048, 6060 and 6072; this offer is available June 8 through August 8, 2010. Lead times on custom orders are three-four days.

According to Bluff Manufacturing President Clark Smith, the new dock board differs from similar products because it features aluminum curbs, instead of steel, which controls sparks and prevents rust in refrigerated environments.

"All of Bluff Manufacturing's aluminum dock plates offer a quick, lightweight solution to bridging the gap between trucks, trailers and a loading dock," explains Smith, noting aluminum dock boards are ideal for low to medium volume dock loading applications. "The all-aluminum dock board offers a better solution for industries with sensitive or perishable freight, such as food or ammunition, which require extra careful handling."

To be used with a forklift or pallet jack, Bluff Manufacturing's aluminum truck dock board is available in 10,000 lbs and 15,000 lbs capacities and lengths ranging from 36-72 inches. The 10,000 lbs units are constructed of 3/8" thick aluminum tread plate with aluminum extruded curbs and aluminum legs. The 15,000 lbs units are constructed of ½" thick aluminum tread plate with aluminum extruded curbs and aluminum legs with a full length cross stiffener. Locking legs, available in lengths from 8-13 inches, provide secure positioning and runoff protection, while an 11-inch lip offers smooth transition from the dock to the truck. Optional locks and lift chains can be added to the aluminum truck dock board, as well as design customization of lip lengths and bend angles.

Tested and certified to ANSI MH30.2 standard - which outlines mechanical and structural design guidelines along with usage, operation and maintenance standards for portable loading dock equipment - this ensures the aluminum truck dock board meets material quality and product durability testing standards.
