Our commercial aluminum structures are designed and engineered to current U.B.C. criteria for their use. Marine ramps mount using our exclusive swing-shackle connection which is simple, strong, and allows the ramp to pivot up and down and side to side with the motion of the ocean ( 3 axis of movement ).
Our aluminum marine ramps roll on solid UHMW grooved rollers on UHMW guide tracks and use solid stainless-steel axles so there is no maintenance. Full width, hinged transitions plates have been Arc-sprayed with Non-Skid coating and have a tapered UHMW drag edge. These ramps have full length side bars spaced to stop a 4″ sphere and full-length handrails on both sides. Decking options include all aluminum decking, fiberglass grating, and others. For rainy or snowy locations, we offer either an awning cover (in a variety of colors) or a metal roof.
Commercial aluminum ramp widths are usually 4′ to 6′ and lengths vary from 60′ to 120′. Other design options include; anodized handrails, painted finishes, Lexan windscreens, golf cart or 4-wheeler traffic, and oversize utility capacity.
