When it comes to emergency response vehicles, AEV is committed to designing Type I ambulances that meet and exceed your expectations. Our team of experts is dedicated to working closely with you to customize your ambulance to your unique needs. We understand that you need an ambulance that’s reliable, versatile, and built to last, which is why we go to great lengths to ensure that every AEV Type I ambulance is one of the most dependable emergency vehicles on the road today.
At AEV, we take our responsibility to keep people safe very seriously. That’s why we subject our ambulances to rigorous testing, including high-speed crash and sled testing that meets or exceeds NHTSA standards. We validate our engineering and construction to ensure that your ambulance meets the highest standards of safety and reliability. We’re proud to say that our ambulances have structural strength and integrity that’s unmatched in the industry. In fact, we test our ambulances at speeds that are 27% higher than federal guidelines for passenger cars.
Our commitment to safety doesn’t stop there. We’re also the first manufacturer to conduct a multi-vehicle, opposite-side crash test. This test ensures that our ambulances can withstand even the most challenging situations and provide maximum protection for the occupants. When you choose an AEV Type I ambulance, you’re getting a vehicle that’s designed to keep you and your patients safe, no matter what challenges you face.
QUALITY & SAFETY BUILT IN
FOCUS ON SAFETY AT NWEV
At NWEV, safety is at the core of everything we do. We take pride in building ambulances that are not only safe for patients, but also for our team members who manufacture them. That’s why we have been a STAR manufacturer partner with North Carolina OSHA since 2008, exceeding legal requirements for health and safety.
PRECISION IN ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS
Our Purpose-Built™ electrical systems are designed and assembled outside the ambulance body, allowing for increased precision and quality. This approach ensures cleaner installations, reducing the likelihood of electrical issues that could compromise patient safety.
STRONGER WELDS WITH V-FORCE™ TECHNOLOGY
At NWEV, we use V-Force™ technology to create stronger welds. We bevel the edges on our extrusions at the weld joints, providing a larger surface area for welding. This ensures that our ambulances are built with the highest level of structural integrity, giving you peace of mind when it comes to patient safety.
DUAL-LAYERED PROTECTION WITH DUO-SHIELD™ PRIMER
We know that durability and protection are crucial for ambulance paint jobs. That’s why we use Duo-Shield™ Primer, which consists of two layers of primer materials. The first is a durable epoxy coat that creates a stronger adhesion between the aluminum skin and the primer layer. The second layer is a urethane primer applied before the paint, providing added protection and ensuring a long-lasting, high-quality finish.
