Splendor Shower Doors Seeks Nation Ramps Rental Solution



Splendor Shower Door was founded in 1952, as a fabricator of room partitions. In 1968, Splendor started manufacturing and installing shower doors in and around Toledo, Ohio. Since then Splendor has grown to be a complete shower door and glass company. They expanded to service 18 states through distributors and now offer a full-line of glass and shower door product lines.

With the growth Splendor has experienced they decided to start a renovation project to expand and improve their facilities in Holland, Ohio. They wanted to continue operating the business while portions of their property and building were not accessible. They approached Nation Ramps for a solution that could allow them to do this, a solution that was capable and flexible to meet their constantly changing ramp placement. Once the renovations were completed they would no longer need the ramp as their facility would be upgraded to meet their demands.

The Nation Ramps solution was a rental MYR18K-34×96-50A, mobile yard ramp. Nation Ramps had a nearly-new unit coming off of rental with the Canadian National Railway and could have a quick turnaround for delivery to Splendor in Ohio. This unit was ideally suited because of its ability to be easily moved around their facility. The MYR18K can easily handle most standard material handling requirements, with easy setup and positioning, you have a portable loading dock anywhere you need it. When the renovation completed, Nation Ramps was there again to remove the ramp and allow Splendor to continue business as usual.

The Ramp for Splendor:

Ramp Length 26.5 Feet
Platform Length 7.5 Feet
Ramp Width 96 Inches
Ramp Usable Width 91 Inches
Ramp Capacity 20,000LBS (GVW)
Ramp Height – Adjustable 41” to 60”
12” Safety Rub Rails

The Nation Ramps MYR18K-34×96-50A was the answer. Our completely mobile portable loading dock with 18,000 lb weight capacity, 8’ wide ramp and flexibility to adjust height from 41” to 60”. Designed to be versatile enough to meet their high traffic use, but also provide ability to easily reposition anywhere with quick hookup to a forklift or pickup. With steel serrated decking the surface ensures that there is no tire slippage, no matter what equipment is utilizing the ramp or the weather conditions. Without the need for permits, the Nation Ramps MYR18K unit was shipped and installed within two weeks. The rental option was the perfect fit for Splendor Shower Doors, especially considering their need to be able to extend the rental should the project go longer than expected.
