Bustin, a division of R•O•M Corporation, has introduced a sturdy compact platform and step system that can be mounted on existing equipment.
“At only 28 inches deep, the Slide & Go Space Saver Platform is made to fit in very tight spaces,” said product manager Dan Caffrey. “The compact design fits most truck bodies, including flatbed trailers, vocational trucks, and recreational vehicles. It is also perfect for side door access and trucks with limited under-mount space.”
The Slide & Go measures 28 inches deep by 36 inches wide. Height varies from eight inches for the platform only, to 19 inches for the platform with Bustin’s retractable Slide-Away Step installed. Optional storage for safety posts and chains is also available.
Even with short mounting brackets, the Slide & Go is rated with a 600-pound load capacity. The Slide-Away Step is rated for 350 pounds.
“The platform enables drivers to cube out the truck and then downstack the product for delivery. The platform easily operates in tight alleyways or locations with cramped or limited space,” said Caffrey.
Deployment is fast and simple. The platform features a single-hand latch release and can be opened and locked in place within five seconds. An active locking mechanism keeps the platform secure during use.
Additional safety features for the Slide & Go include serrated, slip-resistant grating and a handrail option enhancing driver safety with three points of contact.
Compact sliders help reduce the footprint and won’t lock up even in the coldest weather.
