Link Manufacturing is offering a new Swivel Ramp aimed at cargo van and box truck applications.

The 180-degree swivel capability and two storage locations, according to Link, make this ramp the first product of its kind to be designed and manufactured completely in the U.S.

“The Swivel Ramp marks Link’s first new ramp product in several years,” says Michael Hof, vice-president 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 Swivel Ramp provides up to 1,500 pounds of loading capacity and is available for bi-fold ramps in 30, 36 and 47-inch widths and 99, 108 and 117-inch lengths.

The Swivel Ramp expands Link’s line of 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. 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.
