5-SERIES™ MUSCLE RAMP® ALUMINUM GANGWAYS


"Not all gangways are created equal"
Made in USA by US Certified Professionals

American Muscle Docks has taken a smarter approach to the engineering & design of a gangway resulting in a lighter, stronger, and more cost efficient product.

Our patent pending design introduces many elements that have not been utilized on any other gangways to date. Have confidence knowing AMD has designed, engineered, and now manufactures this game-changing gangway.


The design of our gangway beams, end plates, mounting plate, handrail uprights & supports all work in concert to disperse the load (force) on the gangway efficiently. The Patent Pending beam profile designed is optimized to effectively allocate the load throughout the gangway structure.

The smarter engineering of our gangway elements allow the use of lighter material while obtaining a higher live-load capacity similar to that of much heavier gangways on the market - for fraction of the price. 5-Series gangways are as streamline and beautiful as they are strong!

    5-SERIES™ CAN HANDLE ALL FIVE OCEAN ENVIRONMENTS

    BEAM PROFILE DESIGN ELEMENTS

    #1 – Cutout for decking allows the decking to float inside the beam, on top of the fulcrum, resulting in less stress and twisting of the complete gangway structure.

    #2 – Fulcrum (triangle) allows the weight on the decking to disperse directly in the center of the beam reducing bending, twisting, and stress on the gangway structure.

    #3 – Sigma shape (half moon) design allows the weight on the gangway to disperse vertically through the side beam. This shape centers the stress through the center of the beam and also acts like a spring to absorb stress.

    The above three design elements, combined with engineered material thickness and flanges further contribute to the strength of the gangway.

    HANDRAIL PROFILE DESIGN ELEMENTS

    The handrail uprights are a critical part of the handrail structure and have been designed to withstand a combination of loading conditions. Both the diagonal & upright extrusions were engineered to increase the live-load capability.

    The handrail upright & cross beam profile incorporate a square & rounded profile. The two different profiles work in conjunction for added strength in transverse and non-transverse load stresses on the gangway. Handrail uprights are welded to the gangway frame and diagonal beams are fastened with stainless steel bolts.

    ADA handrail options available
