Ambulance Tail Lifts & Ramps

Hi-Spec Tail Lifts provide patient lifts which are in use with a large number of ambulance authorities in the UK. Working closely with the major body builders, the tail lifts are designed with ambulance authority needs in mind.

Hi-Spec offer a 24/7 support system to our customers 365 days a year. Whether you require warranty or non-warranty repairs, our trained engineers are on call to assist. We also supply GENUINE manufacturer's spares which can be ordered directly.


Unlike traditional cantilever tail lifts the HS5 Flatform lift with its unique flat platform, keeps the patient horizontal at all times, eradicating the need to tilt the platform at ground level.

This combined with automatic front and rear patient trolley stops improves transfer of patients to and from the ambulance. The lift can be fitted behind the access door into the ambulance. The lift is simple to operate and is supplied with hinged passenger safety gates. This lift can be used as a rear closure removing the need to fit a separate access door. It can be supplied with sophisticated interlocks which prevent incorrect or inadvertent operation, reducing the potential for accidents or damage.
