Morgan Truck Body has launched a larger version of its Proscape Van door/ramp.

The door/ramp combines the functionality of a rear door with a secondary, articulated section that essentially creates a long, wide walkramp, Morgan says. Designed for Morgan truck bodies that are 102 in. wide by either 103 or 109 in. high, the ramp boasts a length of just over 13 ft.

“Although the idea to create this larger version was initially targeted towards the moving and storage industry, it’s quite clear that anyone who wants to be able to get in and out of the rear of their truck easier will benefit,” says Paul Jarossy, Morgan’s director of marketing and business development. “Most walkramps are no more than 36 inches wide, making them awkward for two delivery people to carry large items up and down.

“With a usable ramp width of 84 inches, carrying items can now be done side-to-side, and four people can carry large items at the same time,” he continued. “This should certainly improve efficiency and ease of handling. And if each worker is carrying one item each, one can be walking down while another can be walking up the ramp. This should save the team quite a bit of time.”
