Over the past five years Ambulance Parts Ltd has responded to NHS Trust requests for help, culminating in the re-engineered AP100 wedge-shaped access ramp.

The drivers behind the AP100 Access ramp project were:

  • To provide strong cost effective solutions to the increasing emergency vehicle down time caused by weaknesses in the original "Lateral" design and supply chain.
  • To provide a consistent, reliable supply of new ramps and spares for existing Lateral Ramp-equipped front- line and PTS Ambulance fleets working in the UK today.
  • To redesign the access ramp and drive line by the introduction of high quality components and materials in order to provide long service life, ease of retrospective fitment with minimal modification and down-time for the existing vehicle.
  • To develop the access ramp for new build vehicles to give a robust, user-friendly, cost-efficient product in tune with today’s demanding front-line ambulance requirements.
