Koller lift imageWith an increased portfolio, Koller, specialists in the design and manufacture of wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) products, is preparing to exhibit its innovative products to visitors of The London Strategic Community Transport (CT) Forum Annual Conference in March 2019.

The Annual Conference is aimed at community transport operators and their suppliers and gives attendees the platform to discuss key issues within the community transport sector.

Koller’s latest product, FALL STOP, will be on display at the event. A new safety barrier created especially for accessible vehicle lifts, Koller designed FALL STOP in anticipation of a significant increase in the global wheelchair lift market.

“An increased number of vehicle lifts means increased potential for accidents,” explained Dean Koller, Director of Koller Engineering. “It is very easy for a wheelchair to roll off a lift, or for an attendant to step back just that little bit too far. With this in mind, our design experts created a very strong, yet light-weight barrier called FALL STOP. It is very easy to fit and can be stored away without fuss.

“We hope this will give our customers even more choice when it comes to implementing equipment that reinforces safe accessible travel.”

FALL STOP will be on display at the conference, alongside other items from Koller’s portfolio, including the Koller EXCEL 120 Combined, which the company says is the first restraint of its type on the market. It is a durable, space-saving restraint crash-tested for wheelchairs up to 120kg plus a passenger.

The London Strategic Community Transport (CT) Forum Annual Conference takes place at Butlin’s Bognor Regis in West Sussex from the 20th-21st of March 2019.
