Besides flexible materials like (PVC) coated fabric, Buitink
Technology also develops and produces applications in composite
materials. That means glass fiber and carbon fiber reinforced
plastic products, whether or not produced as sandwich structure.
These applications usually are developed customer specific and
produced custom made.
Due to a high demand for strong and workable ramps we designed
heavy duty lightweight ramps, made of composite materials.
Difference between existing ramps and Buitink ramps
Steel type ramps usually are not workable at location (too
heavy) while standard plastic type ramps (from e.g. LDPE,
HMPE, PP) are not strong enough and will bend, such that they have
to be reshaped after use. Besides plastic type ramps distribute
pressure forces insufficient.
Ramps made by Buitink Technology on the contrary are
lightweight, super strong and always will retain their original
shape after use. The thickness of a standard Buitink composite ramp
is about 8 mm. By default the ramps are covered with a non-slip
Above pictures show a fully loaded ramp, bended by a truck, and
afterwards completely recovering to its original shape.
Advantages Buitink ramps
Most important advantages of composite ramps:
- Excellent strength/weight ratio;
- Extremely strong and impact load resistant;
- Corrosion free;
- Weather and water resistent;
- Non-slip coating applied;
- No permanent bending
More and more Buitink Technology ramps are applied. Ideal for
application in road construction works as well.
Our customer about composite ramps
"We apply these ramps in our road construction works in
order to distribute the load of heavy machines, such that we
prevent road rutting during road construction work.
Composite ramps clearly exhibit a better pressure
distribution than standard plastic ramps, but are also more
expensive. The ramps can be manipulated easy with a vacuum lift
system and can be handled by road workers without problem. The
latter is impossible with steel ramps. So we are
