SUPPLIERS | LIFTS, RAMPS AND ACCESS AIDS Devon County Council’s six Courtside-converted Citroens all have Faiveley Vapor Ricon lifts miniplus.co.uk | June 2017 | 19 VEHICLES ENHANCED WITH FAIVELEY VAPOR RICON Devon County Council (DCC) has enhanced its community transport offering with wheelchair lifts supplied by Faiveley Vapor Ricon in six Citroen Relay minibuses. “We were selected as the preferred supplier and had no hesitation in specifying the Vapor Ricon S2038X lift to fulfil the brief, which required an internal passenger lift with a walk-through platform and a minimum platform length of 1,500mm,” says Emmie Birchmore of Courtside Conversions. “The lift has proved to be reliable in other conversions and we felt that it was ideally suited to these vehicles and their uses.” The S-series wheelchair lift gives unrivalled access. Its space-saving nature and ease of operation mean that staff can help passengers in and out of vehicles. The lifts benefit from Faiveley Vapor Ricon technology, anti-slip platforms, easy power-assisted controls with manual back-up for complete peace of mind, and appropriate restraints and locks to ensure maximum passenger and user safety. “We have an excellent relationship with Courtside Conversions and we are happy to have supported it and its client through the commissioning of the S-series lifts,” says Faiveley Vapor Ricon Sales Manager Michael Dickinson. The S-series lift can be installed in new vehicles or as a retrofit. An ultra-light version is available, giving users unrivalled choice. FOR MORE INFORMATION www.vaporricon.co.uk
