City bus, mid-mounted high floor lift

This more powerful lift is for front/side door applications in high floor city buses and utilises the vehicle step well to conceal the platform when stowed. 

Based on the proven Access™ Coach Lift design, the Mid-mounted High Floor Lift is highly versatile and is compatible with most worldwide high floor buses. It provides a strengthened, larger platform and bridging plate for wheelchair passenger access and can be deployed by a driver in less than 60 seconds. The telescopic platform includes safety handrails, anti-slip surfaces and high visibility edging. When stowed, the platform and all mechanisms are neatly concealed behind one of the step risers and when in operation, has a SWL of 300kg.

Proven since 1997, the Mid-mounted High Floor Lift is available with either an 825mm or 925mm width,  and a length of 1410mm, 1510mm or 1610mm. All mechanisms are protected from corrosion as they are housed within a cassette positioned between the raised internal floor and outer chassis floor. Every galvanized cassette box has been intelligently engineered so that location is straightforward and fitting issues in terms of surrounding bus components are eliminated.

When operated via simple dashboard mounted control, the lift will automatically deploy from the cassette, ready for the manual positioning of the handrails. A large, wide platform is then available for lifting and lowering wheelchair or immobile passengers on a high grip surfaces with automatic ‘roll-off stops’. Bespoke versions can be hand built by the specialist Mobility Networks engineers if required and the lift can deliver an industry leading height above ground floor level.
