Koller announces relaunch of in-demand wheelchair and passenger restraint
To meet the demand for space-saving wheelchair restraints, Koller Engineering, which specialises in the design and manufacture of wheelchair accessible vehicle products, has re-launched its IRiS wheelchair and passenger restraint.
Compact and unique, the IRiS wheelchair and passenger restraint has been designed to be used where it is not possible to use a four-point tie-down restraint.
Dean Koller, Managing Director at Koller Engineering, explained: “We have seen growing demand for passenger and wheelchair restraints that are adaptable and can be easily stored and fitted into vehicles.
“IRiS does not need front wheelchair tie-down straps; not only is this a unique space-saving feature, but it makes it easy to fit and helps in maintaining a passenger’s dignity. IRiS is also adjustable, so it can fit different width floors, therefore works perfectly in a variety of vehicles.
“Importantly IRiS has been crash-tested to ISO 10542 resulting in complete peace of mind when in use. With its combination of durability and functionality, we wanted to re-launch the product as this wheelchair and passenger restraint can answer many space-saving issues that people experience.”
IRiS is adjustable to fit floor rails with centres from 325-335 mm. Using the EXCEL COMPACT karabiner straps to secure the wheelchair and interchangeable TITUS passenger harness, it can be future-proofed with the possibility to add a three-point upper anchorage belt.
Established in 1980 by Max Koller, Koller Engineering specialises in the design and manufacture of wheelchair accessible vehicle products, including wheelchair restraints, floor rails and portable ramps.
The company is fully ISO 9001:2015 compliant and is recognised as a Motability ‘First Class Supplier’.
