EQ Coach Ski-locker Lift

This next generation Ski-locker lift from Mobility Networks is a robust, fully automatic large passenger platform that provides side wheelchair access to executive and luxury coaches. It now delivers a more compact design and cutting-edge, remote monitoring for enhanced performance and reduced maintenance down-time.

This latest lift is situated in the ‘Ski-locker’ compartment and is compatible with a range of executive and touring coaches with ground-to-deck heights of up to 1.8m.

This one piece platform delivers safe, sturdy and reliable access for wheelchair passengers and can be fitted retrospectively, or during a new build. Its position within the coach ensures protection from the corrosive effects of road dirt, salt, and spray. In-built anti-rattle technology means no additional noise is produced when in transit and this latest design conforms to all current EU safety legislation.

The new EQ Coach Ski-locker Lift is housed in a smaller, more compact cassette so internal coach storage space is maximised when installed. It provides a 400kg lifting capacity with smooth, controlled mechanisms so that passengers experience peace of mind during transfers. This industry-leading solution also incorporates a pioneering, global tracing system whereby the performance of the lift can be monitored remotely. This ensures Mobility Networks technicians can pro-actively resolve servicing or maintenance issues electronically anywhere in the world. Hence fleet down-time is minimised and lift performance is continually optimised.

The platform size is 825x1220mm and incorporates an anti-slip surface with high visibility edging for added safety. The colour and configuration of these edging strips can be varied to ensure conformity with country specific legislation.

Every component incorporated within the EQ design has been selected for its proven reliability. Mobility Networks only installs high specification parts so that trusted performance is always delivered. From the wiring and hoses, through to solenoids and hydraulics, the EQ Coach Ski-locker Lift brings together the very latest in engineering innovation.
