Nation Ramps is the Solution for Hospital Loading Area



Hensel Phelps is a nationwide company providing home & commercial construction and renovation services. Hensel Phelps was contracted for renovations at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The project included renovations of the critical hospital loading area. For the duration of the renovations they were required to set up temporary loading dock facilities in an adjacent parking lot. Due to a hospital being an essential service, requiring 24/7 operation, safety was a concern. Hensel Phelps approached Nation Ramps for a solution that could be safely and quickly installed on-site. Due to the weight and size of our ramps as well as the lack of on-site equipment, Hensel Phelps also required our crane off-load and placement service.

Nation Ramps was able to provide a rental to Hensel Phelps for the duration of their project. The unit selected was perfect for this project as it was a one-piece design and had a simple installation. With easy setup and positioning, you have a portable loading dock anywhere you need it. When the renovation completed, Nation Ramps arranged the crane service and was there again to remove the ramp and meet all of the safety requirements of the job site.

Our Solution:

Ramp Length 26.5 Feet
Platform Length 7.5 Feet
Ramp Width 102 Inches
Ramp Usable Width 97 Inches
Ramp Capacity 22,000LBS (GVW)
Ramp Height – Adjustable 41″ to 60″
12” Safety Rub Rails

The Nation Ramps PLD22k-34×102-50A was the answer. Our equipment loading ramp with 22,000 lb weight capacity and 8.5’ wide ramp offers the flexibility to adjust height from 41” to 60”. Designed to be versatile enough to meet the high traffic and safety requirements of a hospital environment.

Our ramps are not only durable, but also designed to look good in any environment. Without the need for permits, the Nation Ramps PLD22k unit was shipped and installed within two weeks. Our rental option was the perfect fit, especially considering the need to meet the hospital safety requirements and the rigorous criteria to be a Hensel Phelps subcontractor.

Rent for one week or twelve months… we have flexible programs to meet any of your requirements. Designed for durability with high quality North American steel.
