Concrete Loading Docks & Ramps For Your Tacoma Business
Concrete loading docks are critical in a wide variety of industries. They provide a strong stable platform for trucks being loaded with goods as well as the surface for the equipment loading the trucks. Loading docks take a lot of abuse and are subject to extremely heavy loads. As such, it’s important to build a safe, strong and durable concrete loading dock.
Concrete is the material of choice where strength and durability count. When the concrete or existing pavement starts to crack in these areas, it won’t be long before the entire area begins to deteriorate due to the extremes this pavement is subjected to.
The first step in replacing a concrete loading dock area is to remove the broken concrete or asphalt that is currently in place. Once the broken concrete or asphalt is removed the exposed dirt is inspected. Once the dirt is approved base rock is installed and compacted to create a suitable substructure for the new concrete. When it comes time to pour the concrete, it’s key to choose the right type of concrete for the job. A faster setting concrete will allow you to use this area sooner but may not be as strong as a slower setting concrete.
