Morgan Truck Body, a manufacturer of light- and medium-duty truck bodies, announces the launch of a larger version of its Proscape Van door/ramp. The door/ramp combines the functionality of a rear door with the added benefit of a secondary, articulated section that essentially creates a long, wide walkramp. Designed for Morgan truck bodies that are 102” wide by either 103” or 109” inches high, the ramp boasts a length of just over 13 feet.
“Although the idea to create this larger version was initially targeted towards the moving and storage industry, it’s quite clear that anyone who wants to be able to get in and out of the rear of their truck easier will benefit,” said, Morgan Director of Marketing & Business Development Paul Jarossy. “With a usable ramp width of 84 inches, carrying items can now be done side-to-side, and four people can carry large items at the same time. This should certainly improve efficiency and ease of handling. And if each worker is carrying one item each, one can be walking down while another can be walking up the ramp.”
Additionally, he said, “Having the ability to open, close, and lock the door/ramp in 15 – 20 seconds by one person versus two people taking several minutes to carry a heavy, removable ramp to a storage container on the side of the truck is another great benefit.”
The ingress/egress solution is available from Morgan’s 13 North American manufacturing plants. To view the informative demonstration video, click on “Door Ramp” at https://www.morgancorp.com/dry-freight/furniture-mover
