Find Out How To Tell If Your Forklift Ramp Is Safe!
You’ve probably heard of the term “forklift” before, but what exactly does it mean? Forklifts are also used to move heavy objects around the warehouse, and they are typically operated by a human driver.
We all know that we need to keep our forklifts safe, but how do we know if our forklift loading ramp is safe? Well, a forklift ramp is a piece of equipment that has a platform on the front that allows people to load and unload goods from the back of a truck
Are they designed to be safe? Is there a way to tell? The answer to both of these questions is a resounding “Yes!” In this post, we’ll walk through the different ways to check the safety of your forklift ramp and find out if it is CE Certified (European Conformity).
1. Proper Maintenance
It is very important to ensure that your forklift ramp is in good working condition. This will prevent you from getting injured or damaging the ramp. The best way to ensure this is to perform maintenance on the ramp. You should check the hydraulics, running gear, grating, etc. Make sure that the ramp is in good working condition. If it's not, you may want to consider replacing it.
2. Keep the ramp secure
You should check the safety chains regularly and make sure that they are in good condition. If they are damaged or worn, then you should replace them. Also, make sure that the safety chains are locked in place when the yard ramp is not in use. If you don't, the safety chains can loosen and allow the ramp to move freely. This could cause the ramp to fall off the trailer and injure someone.
3. High-quality Construction
The ramp has been designed for heavy-duty applications with a capacity of up to 30,000 pounds. It is manufactured using high-strength steel with a black powder coat finish for long-lasting durability. Light steel structure has been designed by our engineers for easy moving. It makes sense for warehouses where there is low volume of work.
The grating surface of the ramps makes it easy to maintain. For better tire grip, these gratings are rectangular in shape. The forklift ramps for container that are Standard non-CE Certified have lighter grating. Standard versions in 7 ton and 10 ton are the ones we offer.
4. Proper usage of the Ramp
We make sure all of our ramps are shipped with owner’s manuals. Reading the owner’s manual prior to use will help you and your warehouse team learn about the ramp safety, installation, operation, and maintenance. Reading the manual that accompanies your yard ramp will ensure an efficient and safe loading/unloading operation.
