NEW! All-Aluminum Railgate for Step Vans

Tommy Gate is pleased to announce the availability of an All-New, All-Aluminum, RTC Railgate specifically designed for "walk-in" step vans.

These new railgate models are the first of their kind to combine the sturdy motion of heavy duty, High-Cycle Railgates with the ease-of-operation associated with Standard Railgate models. By incorporating both a steel roller drive system and aluminum platform assist features, Tommy Gate has been able to produce a truly unique, efficient, and modern hydraulic lift.

Defining features of the RTC focus on the most common step van liftgate usage, picking up and delivering wheeled cargo via a loading dock. Some of these essential features include a 12-inch platform taper, split cart stops, above-bed travel, and safety trip bar.

RTC models are not only corrosion resistant, low maintenance, and operator safe, they are also extremely clean, dependable, and long lasting.

Design aspects include:

  • 1600 & 2000lb. Lifting Capacity
  • One-piece Extruded Aluminum Platforms  (35-55 inch loading depth)
  • Bolt-on Frame  (requires OEM mounting system)
  • Steel-roller Drive System
  • Above-bed Travel
  • Safety-trip Bar
  • Platform Self-Open/Close Torsion Assist
  • 12-inch Bolt-on Taper

In conjunction with the release of the new RTC Railgate, Tommy Gate has published two new reference videos. One video details the proper usage of the foot-activated Split Cart Stops available for aluminum platforms on Tommy Gate Railgate and Cantilever Series lifts. The other is a video demonstration of Tommy Gate's one-of-a-kind Safety Trip Bar, which is a standard feature on all Tommy Gate Railgate models.
