All loading and unloading of Wheelchairs and Scooters is completed from the rear making our system the simplest and quickest method of all wheelchair accessible vehicles available in Australia.The following photos detail step by step the loading and securing process used in all Flashcab vehicles
The wheelchair/Scooter is brought to the end of the access ramp and secured at the front of the chair using standard safety belt connectors.These seat belts are connected to one way retracting inertia reels that draw the chair into place at the front of the chair space inside
The chair cannot accidently topple backwards or roll backwards down the ramp.Very safe ! Electric chairs can move up the ramp under their own power into place: Standard chairs are easily assisted with no chance that the chair can roll backwards once on the ramp.The ramp fitted can handle up to 300kgs and meets all current standards.
Look Mum No hands !!
Craig and John demonstrate that the chair is secure even halfway up the ramp.Note the securing straps already attached on the front of the chair.
Once inside, the rear of the chair is secured using the simple ratchet tiedowns
A standard seat belt is provided to secure the chair occupant Very easy !!
Note that all loading and securing of the chair is completed from the rear....no need to clamber in through the front doors to complete the process of securing the chair
Note that the wheelchair occupant has very good forward and side vision as the raised roof line ensures plenty of headroom and space...very nice car to travel in.
One finger operation on the ramp.A strong torsion spring located under the ramp takes all the hard work out of closing the ramp.Even a child can do it.
Ramp closed.Two spring loaded locks inside secure the ramp.
No hydraulics or electric motors to go wrong on our patented torsion spring assisted ramp design.This is an important feature for long term,safe operation.
Rear tailgate closed and we are ready to go.The rear of the ramp is easily cleaned by simply using a hose to wash out any dirt.The non slip ramp surface is marine grade carpet and cannot rot or deteriorate.
Total load time : Less than 1 minute !!
Unloading is the reverse of the steps above.
The vehicle is 1.9 metres tall allowing easy access to all carparks.
