Most dock heights are in the range of 46” to 50”, with 48” being the most common. An Edge of Dock, commonly referred to as an EOD, is an economical alternative to a portable aluminum dock plate. Pentalift offers both a hydraulic version and a mechanical version.
Edge of Dock
The EOD acts as a ramp between the truck bed and the building floor when the truck is being loaded or unloaded. EOD’s are a cost effective way to move a pallet truck, 2 wheel cart etc. from the building floor to the truck. In addition to providing the actual transfer ramp, EOD’s are supplied with solid rubber dock bumpers to protect the wall from impact as the truck backs into position.
