Randall Access, a unit of Randall Manufacturing, unveiled the Randall Elevated Platform at the recent International Food Distributors Association (IFDA) Distribution Conference.  With its emphasis on driver safety and efficiency, the platform showcases the future design and engineering direction of side-door access products.
Fred Jevaney, Randall president, said, “The Elevated Platform is an intuitive, highly advanced platform that fully utilizes the platform floor, allowing for a safer, more efficient side-door delivery option.”
Measuring 48"x 52" and constructed of 6061-T6 aluminum, the platform elevates to the trailer door, eliminating the use of a transition plate or a steep drop. The three-step deployment and stowing process increases delivery speed and enhances safety. Ability to use the entire platform floor provides the driver greater maneuverability in and out of the trailer and a larger area to stage loads. Full use of the platform floor allows the trailer to be fully cubed, increasing efficiency and profitability.
The platform’s adjustable mounting system ensures that the platform is in line with the delivery door, whether retrofitted on existing trailers or installed on new trailers.
Randall Access’ commitment to safer, more flexible delivery options is underscored by the ability to use the straight or folding walkramp off the platform either parallel or perpendicular to the trailer, depending on the delivery environment.
The platform also addresses the issues of temperature control and inventory pilferage. Ability to close the side door during deliveries with the platform deployed decreases temperature loss and increases product integrity. Inventory is protected from pilferage with the ability to close the side door.
Randall Access will add this new Elevated Platform to its product offerings in the near future.
