|Enhanced Ambulance Layout with the EZ Door Forward||
Safety is a primary focus in design at Braun Industries. With every new innovation we dream up, consideration of patient and crew is at the top of our list. At FDIC 2012, we proudly debuted our new EZ Door Forward ambulance design configuration. Today, we’re sharing that experience with you through a video tour of an EZ Door Forward unit, narrated by Regional Sales Manager, Eric Wilcox.
In this design, Braun’s well-known EZ Glide Door has been placed at the front of the unit where the standard ALS cabinet is traditionally located. The ALS cabinet is then positioned behind the door for ease of access to equipment and supplies. The sliding door makes for safer entry and exit into the ambulance module and protects EMS professionals from accidentally opening the door into oncoming traffic while on-scene.
The forward layout of the door also enhances the interior of the ambulance module. With this location, there is more room and storage in the box for interior cabinet space and customization. Additionally, 5-point seating positions essential life care equipment within easy reach, enhancing patient care.
The EZ Door Forward featured in the video is a Chief XL Type III ambulance on a Chevy G-4500 chassis. It is a 169″ module with 72″ headroom.
