Koller Makes the VW Transporter Safe for Wheelchair Users

May 22, 2018

The dynamic EXCEL Aries combined wheelchair and passenger restraint has been specifically designed by Koller to fit VW T5 and T6 Caravelle rails allowing the vehicles to become wheelchair friendly by simply removing or repositioning rear passenger seats.

“We decided to make a restraint especially for the VW Caravelle as it is a popular choice for the conversion to wheelchair use. It is very versatile with a wide choice of adaptation options and configurations. This means it can meet most user’s requirements and so is perfect for day to day transport requirements. EXCEL Aries allows users to easily fit restraint systems without having to change any existing fittings,” said Andy Nurrish, Koller sales manager.

Crash-tested to ISO 10542, the EXCEL Aries has several benefits perhaps most notable, is that no vehicle modifications are required as EXCEL Ariesit simply fits into existing rail. Precision machined carriages provide secure anchorage in the rails giving peace of mind and quick release tie-down fittings allow for fast release if required.

As simple to use as a standard seatbelt, EXCEL Aries includes the TITUS passenger harness for maximum comfort and safety. Also featured as standard is the EXCEL Compact over-centre buckle rear straps for maximum adjustability and tensioning and static front straps for easy wheelchair alignment.

Every detail has been considered to ensure EXCEL Aries is easy to operate, works perfectly with VW T5 and T6 Caravelle rails and most importantly is engineered for safety.

Koller’s extensive product range is designed to make life safer and easier for accessible travel. Products are constructed to meet the demanding and changing needs of users, the variety of situations in which the products are used and the growing diversity in wheelchair design. Safety is the foremost consideration in all product design, with ease of operator use and occupant comfort also of paramount importance.
