Over the years, we’ve worked hard to develop a quality selection of apparatus and firefighting equipment through the manufacturers we represent. One such manufacturer is Medix Specialty Vehicles, who recently introduced a new Type III ambulance model to their lineup – the PC 90. Originally introduced as a prototype at EMS Today in February 2016, feedback from dealers, employees, and customers at the show impacted the final PC 90 design unveiled this summer. A KKK/CAAS compliant certified ambulance, the PC 90 is one worth looking into!
The PC90’s 150” module is long enough to accommodate the Stryker and Ferno Cot systems, and is 90” wide with 68” headroom. Like all Medix ambulances, the PC 90 has an all-aluminum body that’s created using 3D “SolidWorks” CAD software for interior and exterior design components. The walls and ceiling are vacuum-bonded with a high strength adhesive – instead of tape – between the exterior skin and the fully welded aluminum superstructure. Using a bonding process that encapsulates high density 2” block foam between the exterior skin and interior layer, the module has exceptional thermal and acoustic insulation resulting in a more comfortable and functional working environment.
Focused on safety, quality, innovation and value, the Medix PC90 includes several innovative products in its design. One such example is the state-of-the-art ¾ inch CNC cut “High Density Polyethylene” (HDPE). HDPE is known for its high-impact strength, resistance to abrasion, staining, and fluid borne pathogens, and ease of cleaning. It is utilized on the cabinet components along with other areas to make them as user-friendly as possible. The roll-up solid vinyl flooring is recessed to eliminate exposed trim, prevent fluid borne contamination and facilitate cleaning.
The Medix PC90 has a forward door design created with CNC parts. The process of using CNC parts on their models provides consistently repeatable components that are interchangeable unit to unit, meaning they are easier to produce and shipping time is minimal in the event of component failure. In fact, CNC parts can be shipped direct from Medix within 24 hours – an important benefit to minimizing downtime and keeping your ambulance in service.
