BACKGROUND:

During the pandemic non-Covid, NHS services were cancelled or postponed.

To quickly reduce the massive backlog of patients waiting for vital scans, it was decided a temporary CT scanner unit would be installed. This would allow more scans to be carried out in less time.

REQUIREMENT:

A temporary ramp to the unit. The system needed to match the building’s hire period. Plus, support varies weight loads, including hospital beds and equipment.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

CAD and technical drawings were created by our designer in-house.

END RESULT:

The order was placed on Thursday and the ramp was delivered and installed within a few hours on Saturday.  The speedy installation allowed CT scans to begin as soon as possible.

FEATURES INCLUDED:

  • Trombone Ends - these are added to the ends of a Rapid Ramp to prevent clothes catching.
  • Telescopic Legs - these can be adjusted to accommodate different threshold heights.
  • Standard Handrail - this handrail system is designed to be grasped by the hand, to provide stability or support.
  • Mesh Platform - this self-draining mesh platform allows water to pass through rather than puddle on the surface and potentially freeze.
  • Standard Colour Black - ramps are powder-coated black to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.

EXTRA FEATURE INCLUDED:

  • Yellow Tread - this is a safety feature designed to help those with impaired vision identify the nose of the ramp and helps users distinguish any level changes.

A big thanks to Rapid Ramps, ordered on Thursday delivered and installed 6am Saturday.
