The ramp cover is a hatch cover over a fixed ramp. It fulfils the same requirements for load carrying capacity and tightness as the surrounding fixed deck. Options are side-hinged or end-hinged ramp covers. The side-hinged ramp cover, built in sections, provides the best solution when a long ramp is required. The ramp cover is usually operated via direct-acting hydraulic cylinders or electric screw-jack.
