SIOUX CENTER, IA, February 22, 2016—Link® Manufacturing, Ltd. today announced the introduction of its new Swivel Ramp, aimed at cargo van and box truck applications. The 180-degree swivel capability and two storage locations of the Link ramp makes this the first product of its kind to be designed and manufactured completely in the United States. The Swivel Ramp is available for bi-fold ramps in 30”, 36” and 47” widths; and 99”, 108” and 117” lengths – providing up to 1500lbs of loading capacity.
The Swivel Ramp expands Link’s line of reliable, durable aluminum ramps. With its full 180-degree rotation, Link’s Swivel Ramp offers unmatched flexibility for loading and unloading any sized cargo. The Swivel Ramp mounts in the rear stored position like a traditional folding ramp, but can also be stored inside, behind the wheel well – providing options for those times when a loading ramp isn’t needed. When not in use for loading or unloading, it rotates outside of the vehicle for unobstructed access.
The Link Swivel Ramp also incorporates safety and efficiency into its design. The primary latching module can be easily removed to provide open floor space for loading and transporting over-sized cargo. Additionally, the quick-release lever enables the ramp to be unlatched when stored in the wheel well position, without requiring users to bend, lift or enter the vehicle.
“The Swivel Ramp marks Link’s first new ramp product in several years”, said Michael Hof, VP of Sales and Marketing at Link. “We are very excited to offer a product that lets drivers work smarter. Our traditional mounted ramps offer some of the best durability and safety measures in the industry, but provide limited versatility for users that transport diverse types of cargo. With the new Swivel Ramp, fleets can efficiently adapt to the loading demands of individual payloads.”
The Link Swivel Ramp will be on display in booth #2211 at the 2016 NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, March 1-4, and will be available to the public Spring 2016. For more information, please contact us.
