A Rugged, Dependable and Safe Modular Structure

AT 170” in length, the Medix MSV-II 170 ambulance has the longest modular body constructed by Medix Specialty Vehicles. As an investment towards safety and durability, the MSV-II 170 featuring seamless side and rear walls, as well as solid body welding to connect the side, front and rear walls along the floor and ceiling. This manufacturing processes provides a flat, smooth finish that does not require additional body work.

Safety and durability don’t stop there. The use of state of the art adhesives (Methacrylate and high strength urethane) eliminates the use of VHB tape and provides a more stable and consistent bond. Single pieces of the build are CNC cut and welded to create a fully formed door component that does not rely on aluminum extrusions and provides a structural environment that exceeds that of formed caps over extrusions. The MSV-II 170 also utilizes 30G tested TriMark “free-floating”, chrome paddle handles with slip resistant application on the interior of paddles for another stride towards safety during the everyday workload of an emergency vehicle.
