Ramp Attachments

Loading Ramps are designed to be beached on a sloped bank allowing heavy machinery to transfer from the shore to the barge without constructing a bulkhead.

Loading Ramps are fixed attachments so the shoreline will need to be sloped to match the angle of the ramps. Timber matting can also be used between the transition from the bank to the bottom of the ramp. Once the Loading Ramps are beached, machinery can be loaded from the shoreline onto the barge with the ramp bearing on the bank preventing barge inclination during loading. Loading Ramp attachments are most often used for loading cranes, roll-on roll-off transport barges, and on either end of temporary floating bridge assemblies.
