Walk ramp melds durability, maneuverability
Jul 1, 2003 12:00 PM
TODCO's new FlipSide side-mounted walk ramp is designed with a combination of toughness and maneuverability to maximize longevity and ease of use.
The new FlipSide transverse-mounted walk ramp is lightweight for ease of maneuverability, but has extra strength and stability because it is constructed of heavy-duty aluminum. A tread plank interlock system also adds strength along the length of the ramp. Tread plank sections are slid and locked together before the sides are welded on, and skip-welding of sections then increases toughness and stability. The unit's heavy-duty welded steel legs give the walk ramp increased support at the base.
FlipSide's large rubber wheels allow easier movement over rough surfaces. They retract automatically when the ramp is unfolded. An open-grate aluminum, skid-resistant ramp surface gives the user extra traction up and down the ramp and helps prevent buildup of mud, snow, or ice.
The FlipSide also features heavy-duty handles on the leading edge and sides of the ramp to make unfolding, folding, and positioning easier and safer. A special latch mechanism speeds unfolding, with no cables to fail.
Rubber bumpers on the leg assembly of the FlipSide cushion the sections of the ramp and reduce banging, rattling, and wear when it is folded and stored. Its storage compartment is fully enclosed to protect the ramp from the elements, and can be padlocked for added protection.
