Koller puts a Fall Stop to safety issues at height

Koller’s Fall Stop product is designed to protect both passengers and staff

Koller Engineering, specialists in the design and manufacture of wheelchair accessible vehicle products, is putting a full stop to safety issues when using vehicle passenger lifts with the launch of a new safety barrier.

It has created a strong and robust barrier providing peace of mind when using a vehicle’s access lift.

It increases safety by stopping a wheelchair, semi-ambulant person, or attendant falling from the raised platform.

“The risk of wheelchair users and attendant’s falling from the raised platform of a vehicle is very real and is something that needed to be addressed,” says Koller Engineering MD Dean Koller.

Fall Stop simply clips into the lift. Weighing just 3.5kg, Fall Stop can be stored with ease in the vehicle making it an additional safety feature that all accessible vehicles really shouldn’t be without,” he adds.

“Koller takes passenger safety extremely seriously and we are continually looking to develop innovative equipment to help with accessible travel.”

Fall Stop is made from high-strength material and has been pull-tested to 850kg without failure. Finished in a high-visibility and durable powder-coating, it does not require any tools for fitting.
