Jeff, >From an old Architectural Graphics Standards: Max. slope: 1:8; Min. length: 30'; Recommended length: 40'. (Footnote cites info from, "The Operations Council, American Trucking Associations, Inc.") Remember, the dock height is going to be dependent on the slope and any level or reverse slope that exists in the pit. The specified dock height, usually 4'-0" to 4'-6" would be measured from where the extended line of the sloping ramp intersects the vertical face of the dock and would *not* be the height of the dock at the face of the wall. Also, the sloping ramp will cause the top of the truck to hit the wall well before the truck bed will hit a dock bumper unless the deck projects out a considerable distance. Truck height is approx. 14'. Hope this helps. A.
