Braun Lifts

UVL Series Van Lift

The UVL, or Under Vehicle Lifts, offers an innovative solution to your personal mobility. With the mobility lift mounted underneath the vehicle, it remains out of sight and out of your way until needed. This means easy access, a clear side view and maximum interior space–something your friends and family will appreciate on every trip.

The BraunAbility UVL Series mobility lifts are electric in operation for both the in/out cycle and the outboard roll stop. The up/down cycle is hydraulic in operation. All functions are controlled by the standard hand-held control or the optional remote control. The UVL Series is designed for installation at the side door of domestic full-size vans.

Lift features:

  • Platform – The UVL Series offers two platforms with 31" of usable width, and 48" or 53" of usable length.  
  • Outboard Roll Stop - For your safety, the electric roll stop raises to the vertical position before the mobility lift platform leaves the ground. Special sensors prevent the platform from rising if the roll stop is not fully engaged.  
  • Inboard Roll Stop - The automatic inboard roll stop serves as a bridge from the platform to the vehicle floor. As a safety feature, platform operation is prevented if the inboard roll stop is occupied.  
  • Hand-Held Control - The standard hand-held control controls all van lift functions. For greater convenience, an optional remote control system is available.  
  • Hydraulic Power Pack - The hydraulic power pack for these mobility lifts is mounted inside the vehicle, out of the elements. In the event of vehicle electrical failure, the UVL can be operated with the manual backup pump.  
  • Threshold Sensor Mat - If the threshold sensor mat is occupied when the mobility lift is below vehicle floor level, lift operation will be prevented, and visual/audible warnings will alert passengers and attendants to unsafe conditions.  
  • Storage Compartment - The aluminum under-vehicle storage compartment is weather-resistant to protect these mobility lifts from the elements. Installation of the UVL requires modification to the van’s drive shaft–consults your BraunAbility Dealer for details.  
  • Lifting Arms - The dual lifting arms are activated hydraulically, providing a stable and strong lifting environment.  
  • Optional Door Operators - The optional automatic door operators give you complete control of your mobility. The doors can be opened and closed with all standard and optional van lift controls.  

Specifications:

  • Lifting Capacity: 750 lbs.  
  • Weight: 365 lbs.  
  • Platform width:31".  
  • Platform Length: 48" and 53".  

The UVL Series is VA accepted and fully NHTSA compliant.

Vangater Series � Lift for Wheelchair

The innovative Vangater at once solves the problem of wheelchair access and ambulatory entry with a power tri-folding platform.
