Koller designs wheelchair restraint exclusively for VW transporter


Koller has designed the first commercially available wheelchair restraint exclusively for the iconic VW transporter, helping to make it easy for owners to travel safely.

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

Reflecting on the work, Andy Nurrish, sales manager at Koller, said: “We have recently received a lot of interest from VW transporter owners and convertors looking for a simple solution to allow wheelchair users to travel safely. EXCEL Aries has been made especially for the VW Caravelle as it is a popular choice for the conversion to wheelchair use due to its versatility and wide choice of adaptation options and configurations.”

Adding: “We have designed EXCEL Aries to be user-friendly. The restraint systems can be easily fitted without having to change any existing fittings. You just simply clip into the existing floor rails. We hope this restraint will make it easy for wheelchair users to get out on the road and travel safely to their holiday destination.”

Crash-tested to ISO 10542, the design means no vehicle modifications are required as it fits into existing rails.

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.
