WM System Loading Ramps are designed as a low-cost, maintenance-free alternative to hydraulic liftgates for vans, box trucks, class-8 trailers, and service and delivery vehicles of all types.
The ramps are engineered to vertically stow just inside rear- and side-access doors and take up approximately 8.5 inches of depth when folded and locked. With their built-in spring-assist feature and side handles, they require only about 20 pounds of force and about five seconds to unfold or be folded back into their low-profile vertical storage position, the company says. The ramps each incorporate a swivel-action mechanism that enables them to swing 90 degrees in and out like a door, allowing users to have unfettered vehicle access when the ramp is not in use. Vehicle-specific mounting plates are available for all major platform makes and models, and installation can take as little as two hours to complete.
