An innovative new lift has been launched by Faiveley Vapor Ricon to provide greater vehicular access thanks to the unique way in which it folds away.
The popular S-series forms the basis for the new Slide-away™ lift which is designed to fold-away concertina style. This allows the lift to clear the doorway of the vehicle by sliding up and out of the way or to one side so that it can be stowed behind a seat and is simply achieved with the press of a button. It offers greater access and is therefore, ideally suited to support independent vehicle users and those offering Patient Transport Services.
“This type of lift gives even more choice for those that need assistance with vehicle access and its simple operation and compact nature will fulfil a demand for such lifts in the UK. Its unique feature is its concertina nature which gives extra space to access the vehicle,” said Michael Dickinson sales manager Faiveley Vapor Ricon. “It is an ideal solution for personal vehicle entry and exit and will also deliver increased independent travel and accessibility.”
The S-Series mobility lift benefits from a powerful hydraulic pump design, has a stable non-skid platform giving vehicle users peace of mind and enhanced safety. With easy operating credentials and similarly easy maintenance, it is a lift that can revolutionise vehicle transport for wheelchair and scooter users.
“We endeavour to develop solutions that deliver real benefits for our existing and potential customers and this lift offers an additional option for local authorities and health care trusts in the essential transport of patients,” said Michael. “We hope that this will support users with their requirements and prove extremely useful to a wide range of customers and the vehicles they have.”
The patented Slide-away™ lift is already proving popular on the continent and is now available in the UK delivering enhanced options for disability transport.
