Faiveley Vapor Ricon introduces its latest product – a lightweight electronic access ramp designed for passenger and cargo access.
The new Electronic Ramp enhances Faiveley Vapor Ricon’s already comprehensive range of products, filling a market niche for robust, yet lighter-weight ramps suitable for both domestic and commercial vehicles.
“It’s great to see our products continually evolving and supporting the needs of both personal and business customers, and the electronic lightweight ramp will give some buyers added options that better suit them,” said Michael Dickinson, Business Development Manager, Faiveley Vapor Ricon. “With a range of options to suit individual or company requirements, the ramps provide the same easy operation and access to vehicles that our products are renowned for.”
The Electronic Ramp is electrically operated via a handheld remote, providing a greater ease of operation, but also included is a manual override option in case of an emergency or loss of power to the vehicle. Overall the ramp ranges in lengths from 1700mm to 3400mm with either single or two-fold sections as dictated to by the chosen length, plus a range of widths. Available in a mesh, or mixed material platform, the ramp weight ranges from 32kg to 39Kg, depending on style and size chosen, which means the impact on maximum load capacity will be greatly reduced. In addition, the new ramp boasts a safe working load of up to 600kg (on some models) and handrails are provided to ensure maximum safety.
“Whether it is for stretcher, wheelchair, scooter, or cargo access, our latest ramp can meet the demands of vehicle size, vehicle access needs and a variety of transport and product options. Meaning that our customers and their customers have much more choice to either safely access and egress or load the vehicle.” said Michael.
