Hinged Ramp - Aug 2012
A client required a hinged bridgeplate ramp combination to give access to varying heights of vehicle.
The ramp is used on ship decks so needed to be lightweight, easy to manoeuvre and supplied in sections for storage. The ramp is made from high tensile aluminum treadplate and is supplied with stainless steel lifting eyes to give high strength and corrosion resistance.
Six ramps were supplied for use on different ships.
The specifications are as follows;
Ramp Width = 1300mm
Overall Length = 3000mm (in 3 Sections)
Bridgeplate Length = 750mm
Capacity = 3000Kg
Operating Range = 185-250mm @ 4 Degrees.
The bridgeplate is shown locked in the vertical position for storage.
The largest section is supplied with both pallet truck pockets and lifting eyes.
The smaller sections were supplied with lifting handles in the side curbs and were locked together as shown above.
