Converting Vauxhall Movano vans to carry 360kg beds within the medical sector, ensuring load areas are kept clinically clean.

Arjo Huntleigh: GRP Linings & Folding Shelving

Case Study

Arjo Huntleigh contracted us to convert 128 Vauxhall Movano vehicles for the bed rental stream of their business

In the existing fleet, Arjo Huntleigh had used ply linings and wet coated GRP to line the internal sides and roof, but this was very difficult to repair when in service. As a solution, we identified a new product to the UK market which consisted of pre-formed injection moulded GRP panels, that are both easy to install and to replace if damaged, but most importantly allowing the load area to be kept clinically clean.

Arjo Huntleigh

Our fitters were trained by the Supplier how to install GRP panels, and seal them in place. This is an installation which we had not previously undertaken, however the team are now fully versed in the process, enabling us to offer this form of lining to all of our customers.

A ramp and winch were also fitted to allow the beds to be easily loaded into the vehicles, to make them fit for purpose.

In addition to the specific lining requirements, prior to implementation the customer advised us they have a prerequisite to carry small boxes and bedding, and needed a means of doing so whilst ensuring the loads were retained safely. To meet this need we developed bespoke fold down shelving with cargo retaining nets, so that ArjoHuntleigh could transport the bed whilst also safely carrying other goods on the shelving, as opposed to having loose boxes placed on the floor of the vehicle.

This type of folding shelving would also be ideal for home delivery and parcel vehicles, to ensure the safe storage of goods and boxes. Providing flexibility in terms of space within the vehicle dependant on the load.

Qi continue to work with Arjo Huntleigh, and are now carrying out a similar specification on a Vauxhall Vivaro.

“Qi were helpful and knowledgeable in the design of our updated conversions, they are also competitively priced.”
