Loading Dock Steps
IBC, ADA, or OSHA
The DOCK Step by Upside Innovations is the perfect lightweight, heavy-duty solution for your loading dock. Because DOCK Step is prefabricated and modular, it bolts together in about an hour.
Our Dock Steps are prefabricated, modular, and bolt together without special equipment or welding. They typically bolt together in about an hour.
Loading dock stairs are designed following IBC, ADA, and OSHA standards. While most loading docks only require OSHA compliance, we have IBC/ADA options available.
Platform legs have 8” of adjustability for uneven ground or ongoing adjustments.
100% Aluminum – Long Lasting
Our dock steps will never rust, warp, or rot. All components are low maintenance and will last much longer than wood or steel.
The dock steps are standard with an aggressive, heavy-duty 3” channel grip strut grating that provides maximum, multi-directional slip resistance. Other decking options are also available.
Because our products are modular, repurposable, and contain 32.5% to 75% recycled content, including 50% to 65% pre-consumer and up to 20% post-consumer recycled scrap, they can help contribute to several LEED v4.1 credits and other green building rating systems.
Modular dock steps, landings, legs, and handrails bolt together without on-site welding. This makes it easy for dock steps to be adjusted, reconfigured and relocated.

Why ADA Stairs?
While loading docks are generally closed to the public, they are often considered an “area of refuge” or area of rescue. An area of refuge is a location in a building designed to hold individuals during a disaster or emergency safely. These areas are created when regular evacuation is unsafe or impossible (typically for handicapped people with limited mobility). For example, during a fire, non-mobile individuals may be unable to use a stairwell and must be able to wait in an area of refuge until first responders or other rescue personnel are available.
