Keeping life-saving vehicles on the road

At Designs, we have many years’ of experience working with our emergency services, including East Midlands Ambulance Service.

They trust us to deliver world-class service when it comes to producing and installing emergency service vehicle (ESV) reflective livery and our team of experts has installed markings on hundreds of ambulances for the trust.

We use the best 3M products available on the market, such as ‘Diamond Grade’ 3M reflective marking tape, which conforms to all the regulations and is of course an excellent quality product.

Any downtime these vehicles face whilst in for repair, means another ambulance off the road. Being life critical projects, with same day dispatch for replacement graphics, we minimise the downtime when emergency service vehicles are in for repair. A straight forward order process, and easy identification of the necessary panels that require replacement graphics, means it is quick and easy for repairers to order and receive new reflective livery.

As the trust has various makes and models in its fleet, we also continuously ensure that we apply the markings to fit the individual vehicle specifications and have close working relationships with most of the emergency vehicles converters which supply the trust.

It takes an incredible 400 hours to build an East Midlands Ambulance Service vehicle from start to finish. This video was produced by Vehicle Conversion Specialists (VCS Ltd), who have created a time lapse for EMAS showing a conversion condensed to just 3 minutes long. If you don't blink you can see the Designs team installing the ESV reflective livery.
