42x108 Spring Assist Ramp---LB20-42-108-SA
“Our new 42-inch-wide ramp is perfect for fleets and vehicles serving the last-mile delivery segment, that don’t have to deploy ramps at every stop, because it leaves enough room for door entrance and egress without being unfolded,” said Lynn Blake, national account manager of Cargo Management Products for Link Manufacturing. “When deployed, the ramp has ample width to meet the needs of a variety of cargo conveyance devices, and we’ve had customers use everything from hand-operated dollies to semi-autonomous military robots on our ramps.”
The 42-inch-wide, 108-inch-long folding aluminum ramp features a robust steel deck mounting plate and has a capacity rating of 1,250 pounds. The ramp can be used on vehicles with deck heights ranging from 20 to 48 inches and door heights exceeding a minimum of 60 inches.
Link’s new LB20-42-108SA ramp is particularly well suited for cargo vans. It fits Ford Transit cargo vans with medium and high roof configurations, and NISSAN NV, Dodge Ram ProMaster and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter cargo vans with high roof configurations.
The new ramp comes standard with Link’s unique spring assist and wheel kit. The spring-assist makes deploying and retracting the ramp simple and easy, requiring only about 50 pounds of force to be exerted for either operation. The ramps wheel kit helps transition the ramp more smoothly when deploying it on a wide variety of surface angles and materials.
“All Link folding ramps are so easy and simple to use, even novice workers can be up and running in no time,” Blake said. “They’re also lightning-fast to operate and can be unfolded and folded back into their vertical, low-profile storage position in less than 10 seconds.”
By stowing vertically inside the vehicle’s cargo hold, the ramps are not exposed to the weather or road debris, and they remain clean and dry prior to use. After use, and once in its vertical position again, any moisture or residue left on the ramp can be easily brushed or wiped away.
“When in its upright and closed position, the ramps take up less than 12 inches of horizontal space in the area just inside the door, that is generally unusable anyway,” Blake said. “Also, unlike liftgates that are slow and laborious to deploy, a Link ramp can be opened and in use within seconds and can be stowed just as quickly.”

RAMP CAPACITY RATINGS
There are many methods that are used to give a ramp its loading capacity rating. Do not be fooled by the numbers. Our ramps are rated using a footprint 6" wide by 16" long.
Pressure is applied to the center of the ramp with this footprint. We then apply a three times safety factor to arrive at the weight our ramps are capable of loading safely. This gives you a true capacity rating that has the safety of you and your employees at heart.
Ask your ramp supplier how they arrive at their capacity rating.
