WAS 500 Rettungswagen RTW Fiat Ducato Kofferaufbau Typ B, A+E Lightweight 4,25 T

The WAS Fiat lightweight modular box A + E vehicle offers a perfect solution to the restrictions of a panel van. The vehicle has 20 % more interior workspace than a panel van but the gross vehicle weight is a massive 6.5% lighter which improves fuel economy greatly and enables bariatric capability with a payload of 850 kg. The tried and tested WAS heavy duty dual rear doors are capable of mounting medical equipment and the sliding side door offers access to response bags and allows for the emergency removal of the stretcher. There is also the option for external lockers to provide quick and easy access to essential equipment without having to enter the vehicle. An integrated side step offers easier access to the vehicle with reduced height, this mitigates the risk of VOR that’s linked to the underslung step. An integrated step will also reduce the risk of accidental injury to both crew and patient. With the WAS modular box’s internal width that’s 100 mm greater than the van, layout options are far more versatile and patient comfort is enhanced. The extra width allows for a carry chair to be loaded without stowing away the forward-facing saloon seat.
