This ramp was developed specifically for us on Optare vehicles that feature a ‘kinked’ floor. The design of the ramp allows both the moving member and the cassette to follow the profile of the floor. Because of the unique floor of some Optare buses the standard PSV product was not compatible.
Following a success trial, this ramp was specified on a batch of vehicles purchased by a leading UK operator. The ramp is a good example of the custom operator and bus builder requirements that PSV are able to work with. It is a vehicle specific ramp that may not have a lot of applications but is a good demonstration of the design and production capabilities at PSV.
