Brute Industries Inc., Escanaba, Mich., manufacturer of Race Ramps, took one of the 2011 SEMA Global Media Awards for its 7” trailer ramp with flap cut-out. This was the company’s twelfth such award in five years.
The 7” ramps are designed for enclosed trailer doors that incorporate an extension flap to get low-ground-clearance vehicles on and off trailers without scraping. The ramps can support a 6,000-lb. vehicle. With a 5.2° angle of approach, the ramps enable low-ground-clearance vehicles to get on and off trailers without the nose making contact, or the vehicle bottoming out.
