Hinged tailboard ramps are used between the rear deck of commercial vehicles and the loading dock, or as an access ramp when the vehicle platform is at ground level. When fitted to the rear of a commercial vehicle, they can serve as a tailboard and a load bearing access ramp. These tail board ramps are fabricated from a five bar treadplate (see type RWB) or a honeycombe aluminium extrusion (see types RPB-30 and RPB-40 below). Both have an anti-slip surface.
Fitting kits are available and the hinge shaft is included.
