2.Learn the basics of stationary dock ramp in advance.
Having a good understanding about the specifications, parameters and basic structure of stationary dock ramp will help you make sufficient preparations for the installing work. Platform dimension and lifting height are the main elements that influence the dimension of the pit.
3.Renovate or build new pits to install the stationary dock ramp.
Stationary yard ramps are installed by being embedded into the ground and the ramp platform must parallel with the ground, so that people can walk over the platform when the ramp is retracted. If the installing site is decided, consider what kind of pit should be built from a pragmatic perspective.
4. Safety rules should be considered.
