TPC Wire & Cable Corporation was in need of a few different specifications. Firstly, they needed a ramp that allowed trailers with low clearance to drive into their building. Secondly, being in the industrial wire and cable industry, they also needed a ramp that could handle the large weight capacities of the trucks plus the cable or wire. Lastly, they also needed a ramp long enough for large trailers to get into their building, without hitting the ceiling.
After researching more about customers needs, Lots-a-ramps’s engineering team decided that the best solution was to design a unique 2 piece ramp design. This 2 piece option answered the company’s unique specifications, while also making shipping and unloading a painless task. When joined together, the dock-to-ground ramp is 50 feet long. Therefore, we had to get creative as to how it would be best to manufacture and transport to the customer.
Two-Piece Design Was The Best Solution
Copperloy’s team manufactured the ramp in two pieces. The first ramp is 30 feet long, by 10 feet wide. Allowing for the trailer space to navigate, while also providing a 30,000-pound capacity. Being made of steel, with serrated grating, for better traction and durability. The 20-foot extension to this ramp locks into place for easy installation. Saving on manual time to bolt the two pieces together yet offering peace of mind in Lots-a-ramps’s safety procedures and factory certification. Most would call it a hassle-free experience. They won’t cut corners even with a custom design, they still manufactured it for ease of use and safety.
