BraunAbility UVL-Series
Cassette wheelchair lifts for coaches and transit buses.

Accessibility for M3

The UVL-Series are well-proven lifts for commercial use. Mounted in the step or other dedicated compartment of the bus, they stay out of sight and out of the way until called upon. The UVL-Series wheelchair lifts are fully automatic and operated by an attendant using a hand-held control.

Our UVL lifts are high-quality well-proven workhorses. These lifts are installed in thousands of buses and used daily all over the world. Each unit goes under rigorous scrutiny both during and at the end of the production phase. We do this to ensure a lift that will do its job and continue to do so for a long, long time.

Discreet installation

The cassette form makes it possible to hide the lift where it won’t interfere with anyone’s view, be it passenger or driver. Nor will it take up valuable floor space giving the bus flexibility in floor plan design. A common place to install the UVL-Series is in the step of the bus, but it can also be any other dedicated compartment.

Handheld control

A handheld 3-button control is used to operate all lift functions. Each button is marked clearly making it easy to understand and use. The handheld control is made of durable plastic and designed to withstand weather, abuse and heavy usage.

Manual Backup

In the event of a complete vehicle electrical failure, the UVL-Series will still be fully operational thanks to a manual backup system. This allows the operator to manually raise and lower the platform using a hand pump. The backup system is easy to use and fully functional even under high loads. The manual backup system is a standard feature included in all UVL lifts.

As an added safety feature the platform of the UVL-Series has been given a slip-resistant surface. This provides wheelchair users and operator with a good grip even when wet.

Tested and approved

We take safety very seriously. That's why we put all our products through rigorous testing. The UVL-Series wheelchair lifts are EMC test approved. They fulfil the requirements to bear the CE-label as well as the E5 label for type approval.
