Service Package
Supply & Install

BACKGROUND:

A new mobile unit would be positioned at the north end of the hospital and serve patients waiting for vital and potentially life-saving scans.

REQUIREMENT:

To design, supply, and install an access ramp to the facility. 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

CAD and technical drawings were designed by our specialist In-house designer, from architectural drawings and onsite measurements/ photos.

END RESULT:

A Rapid Ramp was installed within a few hours to the mobile unit.

The whole process from the manufacturing, design, supply, and installation was handled in-house.

Our fitters travelled to the Isle Of Wight with the ramp components to execute the installation.

The Rapid Ramp platform was ideal as it has a loading capacity 1,000kgs, designed to safely support the weight of hospital medical equipment, including beds and trolleys as they are moved through doorways.

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 - a self-draining mesh platform allows water to pass through rather than puddle on the surface and potentially freeze. Minimum width: 1500mm.
  • Standard Colour Black - Ramps are powder coated black to create a durable 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. The colour yellow is purposely chosen because as a bright colour, it has the ability to reflect light. Therefore, making it easier for the user to see whilst reducing the risk of trips and falls.
