CHASSIS

Ambulift is designed on a self-propelled chassis, which is produced by steel profiles and sheets, to provide stability for a safe ascent/descent to/from the aircraft door.

VAN BODY

The steel construction body is covered with special plates filled with polyester, wood and styrofoam inside and outside. The body is lifted by a scissor system powered by two synchronized telescopic hydraulic cylinders. There are lock system to fix the wheelchairs and the stretchers. Fresh air is provided by the ventilation fan and through all-round windows on both sides. On the rear, there is observation window and double wing door to access into the body whereas. On the front side, there is one single door. Maximum service height is 5800mm. There are two folding seats in the body. There are handrails on the left and right walls of the body.

PLATFORM

Extendable front platform is made of steel profiles and moves with the body to serve the aircraft. Front platform is extended by means of a hydraulic cylinder. Floor is covered with checkered aluminium plate. On full cab applications one independent, with half cab applications two independent platforms are provided.

TRACTION SYSTEM

The traction system is provided by a diesel engine with an electrically controlled power-shif transmission with torque converter with low and high speed selection. Ambulift has dual circuit hydraulic assisted braking system on 4 wheels and hydraulic assisted power steering system.

TAIL LIFT

Access from the ground to body level is provided through a foldable tail lift which is used for lifting Wheelchairs and stretchers activated by a hydraulic cylinder and chained tambour system. Floor is covered with checkered aluminium plate and has a ramp and handrails to help loading wheelchairs.

HYDRAULIC SYSTEM

The hydraulic system is provided with an oil tank, a pump driven by the truck engine, cylinders, safety valves (Self Actuated Locking Valves in case of a pressure loss), hydraulic valves. There is an emergency hand pump which can also be used in case of engine failure.

ASAS (AIRCRAFT APPROACH SYSTEM)

It has a deceleration and docking system controlled by sensors for a safe docking of the vehicle. When the vehicle starts to approach to the aircraft, the system slows the vehicle down and stops to prevent the vehicle from hitting the aircraft. System allows driver or operator to brake and deactivate the system when it is active.

STABILIZING SYSTEM

The stabilizing system consists of 4 vertically operated hydraulic support jacks. The jacks work in simultaneously.

SURFACES

The platform is hot-dip galvanized and other parts are custom painted as per requirement.

LIGHTING

LED Type lighting fixtures, projector in front and rear of the platform, gabary lamps at the corners and a beacon are provided on the van body.
