The UVL855 is a well-proven lift for commercial use. Mounted in the step or other dedicated compartment of the bus, it stays out of sight and out of the way until called upon. The UVL855 wheelchair lifts are fully automatic and operated by an attendant using a hand-held control.
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 UVL855 is in the step of the bus, but it can also be any other dedicated compartment.
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.
Our BraunAbility 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.
Quiet and rattle free
The UVL855 is smooth and quiet in operation. The rattle-free design provides a pleasant ride while driving.
In the event of a complete vehicle electrical failure, the UVL855 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 UVL855 lifts.
Tested and approved
The UVL855 series wheelchair lifts fulfil the requirements and bear the CE-label. In addition to this, they are also EMC test approved.
As an added safety feature the platform of the UVL855 has been given a slip-resistant surface. This provides wheelchair users and operator with a good grip even when wet.
