If you are looking for a portable loading ramp or mobile loading dock for your operation, it can be difficult to determine which option is best for your needs. Whether you are handling extremely heavy materials or need a large unit to unload multiple trucks, Dura-Ramp can help. As leading providers of quality prefabricated and custom-built ramps, they know how important it is to have the right equipment for the job. To help users determine which option is right for their needs, their team has compiled some information comparing custom vs. prefabricated loading ramps.
Learn about the differences between loading docks, loading ramps, and loading bays.
Custom Loading Ramps
As noted by the name, custom loading ramps are designed and constructed based on the unique requirements of your facility. These units are ideal for specialized applications that have unique height requirements or need unique features to ensure safety and efficiency. Every custom loading ramp is designed and manufactured in house by our skilled team to meet the unique needs of every industry in North America. Whether you are looking for an extremely large loading platform, a narrow design, or enhanced portability, we can help. While a custom loading ramp delivers leading performance and safety, they also tend to feature longer lead times. This makes them a poor choice for projects with tight deadlines or facilities in need of an urgent solution.
Prefabricated Loading Ramps
With years of experience in a variety of industries and facilities, Dura-Ramp understands the requirements of many types of applications. From warehousing to manufacturing, we provide prefabricated loading ramps that can seamlessly fit the needs of your facility. Whether you are looking for a heavy-duty “Pro” loading ramp or a versatile “Mobile” loading ramp for yard use, we will work with you to determine which option is the best choice for your needs. While a prefabricated loading ramp is not tailor-made for your specific application, they often have lower lead times and can be quickly delivered to your facility. This makes prefabricated loading ramps a great choice for facilities that are built to common specifications and for projects that need a ramp as soon as possible.
