Braun Under Vehicle Lift or UVL
The UVL, or Under Vehicle Lift® from Braun/BraunAbility is the wheelchair lift that is hidden away under the vehicle when not in use. With these wheelchair lifts mounted underneath the vehicle, they remain out of sight and out of your way until needed. That means easy access for ambulatory passengers and cargo, a clear side view for the driver while traveling and maximum interior space for passengers – something your friends and family will appreciate on every trip.
Braun UVL Specs
Wheelchair Lift Weight Capacity: 750 lbs.
Weight: 365 lbs.
Platform Length: 48" and 53"
The UVL Series is VA accepted and fully NHTSA compliant wheelchair lift.
Platform Stores Under Vehicle
The UVL wheelchair lift's platform stores under your vehicle when not in use and offers two platforms with 31" of usable width, and 48" or 53" of usable length.
UVL's Outborard Roll Stop
For your safety, the electric roll stop raises to the vertical position before the mobility lift platform leaves the ground. Special sensors prevent the platform from raising if the roll stop is not fully engaged.
UVL's Inboard Roll Stop
The automatic inboard roll stop serves as a bridge from the platform to the vehicle floor. As a safety feature, platform operation is prevented if the inboard roll stop is occupied.
UVL's Hand Held Remote
The standard hand-held control controls all van lift functions. For greater convenience, an optional remote control system is available.
Hydraulic Power Pack
The hydraulic power pack for these mobility lifts is mounted inside the vehicle, out of the elements. In the event of vehicle electrical failure, the UVL can be operated with the manual backup pump.
Threshold Sensor Mat
If the threshold sensor mat is occupied when the mobility lift is below vehicle floor level, lift operation will be prevented, and visual/audible warnings will alert passengers and attendants to unsafe conditions.
The aluminum under-vehicle storage compartment is weather-resistant to protect these mobility lifts from the elements. Installation of the UVL requires modification to the van's drive shaft.
The dual lifting arms are activated hydraulically, providing a stable and strong lifting environment.
Optional Door Openers
The optional automatic door operators give you complete control of your mobility. The doors can be opened and closed with all standard and optional van lift controls.
