Sun State Insulation Seeks Used Ramp Option


Sun State Insulation operations in Fort Meyers, Florida required an immediate solution for their quickly expanding business. Sun State Insulation was looking for an option that would allow their customers pick up their orders at the Sun State Insulation distribution centre, with the ability for contractors to drive into the warehouse with their truck and trailer units to load their order. Their facility only had grade level docks and they had just moved in; needing an economical solution that could be in place within the shortest time frame possible.

The solution:

Ramp Length 27 Feet
Ramp Width 120 Inches
Ramp Usable Width 115 Inches
Ramp Capacity 30,000LBS (GVW)
Ramp Height – Adjustable 38″ to 55″
12” Safety Rub Rails

The Nation Ramps solution was a used EQP30K-27×120-46A. Nation Ramps had a nearly-new unit coming off of rental with the US National Guard in Savannah, Georgia. This unit was ideally suited for handling the constant traffic and large variety of vehicle types. The EQP30K can easily handle any type of truck and trailer combination. They also needed a solution that was strong enough to handle the daily abuse of high volume use. Engineered to exceed capacity levels, Sun State needed a solution that could survive the unpredictable.

The Nation Ramps EQP30K-27×120-46A is an equipment loading ramp with 30,000 lb weight capacity and 10’ wide ramp offers the flexibility to adjust height from 38” to 55”. Designed to be versatile enough to meet their high traffic use, but also have flexibility to reconfigure should their needs change. The steel serrated decking surface ensures that there is no tire slippage no matter what equipment is utilizing the ramp. Without the need for permits, the Nation Ramps EQP30K unit was shipped and installed within two weeks. The used option not only saved time, but also saved cost over the new option.
