Mobility Networks, a leading multi-national provider of powered vehicle lifts, ramps and access solutions, will be unveiling two new pioneering products at The Mobility Roadshow incorporating Get Going Live! (25-27th June 2015, Stand TD02).

25 June, 2015
Mobility Networks provides launchpad for ultra-thin vehicle access lift

A key sponsor of the 2015 Mobility Roadshow, Mobility Networks is a trusted supplier of wheelchair access solutions for buses, coaches, specialist transport and accessible cars. Combining global knowledge with local expertise, Mobility Networks provides a single source for the latest international innovations and is led by global entrepreneur Mike Simmonds. On Stand TD02, Mobility Networks will be hosting a global launch of its new ultra-thin vehicle cassette lift in co-operation with Autolift and revolutionary electronic vehicle controls from RB Systems. As both these solutions are cutting-edge and completely new to market, details and specifications will be available at The Mobility Roadshow for the first time worldwide. 

Alongside these state-of-the-art innovations, Mobility Networks will be showcasing an Access Lite vehicle lift and its FlexiRail accessible vehicle flooring system. The Access Lite is designed, manufactured and installed by PLS (Passenger Lift Services) which operates as part of the Mobility Networks Group. This cassette based, semi/fully automatic telescopic platform is available with four levels of specification and delivers the lightest and most flexible wheelchair access solution for vans, mini and midi-buses. Through ingenious engineering, it combines strength and durability with weight-saving benefits so added fuel consumption is minimised when installed.

Mobility Networks FlexiRail will also be on display – a highly durable, lightweight rail flooring solution that provides versatile positioning of wheelchair tie-downs and adapted vehicle seating. Available in either single or double rails configurations, FlexiRail is ideal for all M1-M3, flat floor accessible vehicles and delivers a safe surface to reconfigure seating and wheelchairs within a vehicle. As with all Mobility Networks’ products, FlexiRail has been stringently tested so it complies with all European safety requirements. All rails are fully universal in terms of seat fixings and wheelchair restraints so total flexibility is assured.

Mike Simmonds, Mobility Networks CEO commented: “The Mobility Networks team and I look forward to a busy and successful Mobility Roadshow. We will be supported by senior representatives from PLS, our UK lift manufacturing division, along with suppliers from RB Systems based in Israel and Autolift from Italy.  We also have many international colleagues and clients attending the event ready to discuss our latest and exciting product developments.  We are proud to be sponsoring the Mobility Roadshow this year – it will provide the perfect platform for further Mobility Networks success as we expand our portfolio of services across the world.”
