Inboard Stretcher Lift

Inboard Stretcher Lift

This strong and highly robust, stretcher platform lift from PLS is suitable for ambulance rear access and is stowed vertically within the vehicle.

This inboard lift is suitable for the majority of specialist patient transfer vehicles globally and provides a high specification, ultra safe lifting solution.

It has a SWL of 400kg and a 815x1600mm platform that ensures paramedics and healthcare professionals, have ample space to stand on the lift when transferring patients. The self-levelling Bridging Plate provides smooth, safe transfers from the platform to the ambulance and is available in widths ranging from 750-815mm. The platform can be engineered to be either a single section or split, dependent on legislative requirements across the world.

When folded and stowed vertically, the lift still provides some rear or side visibility due to its steel mesh platform. All mechanisms rest on anti-rattle, rubber cushions so there is no additional vehicle noise and fixings remain intact and safe. This PLS lift can be raised to an impressive height of 1150mm above ground level for loading adaptability.

The pioneering electrical system only incorporates high quality components and wiring. It is easy to fit, operate and maintain whilst all components are of the utmost quality so consistent performance and reliability is assured. Triple process, powder coating is standard across all lifting arms and platform elements for maximum protection against corrosion.

Handrails are coated in rubber so that gripping is easy for operators. Several features that include a manual automatic override system, anti-slip surfaces and automatic, two-piece outboard roll-off stops enhance safety.
