Yardramps, dockboards and steel railboards are manufactured by Brazos Manufacturing and sold directly to our customers in Illinois. Our customer service group work regularly with clients in Chicago IL, Peoria IL and Aurora IL. We also work with rural companies who use our yard ramps to create portable and remote loading docks. Both ground to truck ramps and ground to dock ramps.
Brazos Manufacturing products are tested using Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
The designs on all Brazos Manufacturing loading dock products are tested using Finite Element Analysis (FEA)…a computerized testing of loading that mimics real world usage. Seen here. Real world testing is also done along with stringent quality control efforts. This assures you and us the loading dock product we build is worthy of our name.
All Brazos products are engineered and produced using equipment and technics representing the latest and highest standards. In this same plant we produce pressurized vessels. The methods and standards to meet are higher than any other shop building loading dock equipment. A discussion of our quality measures is here.
One of the many reasons we pride ourselves in the quality of our products is that the environment our dockboards and yardramps are placed in is sometimes potentially dangerous. Heavy equipment rolling across our ramps loaded with many thousand pounds of materials in close proximity to people is no place for inferior equipment. Here is a discussion on ramp safety.
Yard ramps are used in many areas where shipping containers are opened and loaded and unloaded.
