Link Manufacturing Introduces New 180 Degree Swivel Ramp

Link Manufacturing launched 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.
