Safety

Safety is everything for us at Auto Extras. Trust us to give you the best advice to keep you, your passengers and your mobility devices safe as you travel.

WHEELCHAIR RESTRAINTS

When you’re travelling inside a vehicle in a wheelchair, both you and the wheelchair need to be securely fastened with a restraint system.

These systems come in two parts: the wheelchair restraint itself and the separate occupant restraint.

The wheelchair restraint has:

  • four mounting points
  • choice of automatic (self-tensioning) or manual retractors, or a combination of the two
  • choice of track-mounted or disk-mounted.

Meanwhile, the personnel restraint is a three-point seatbelt for the passenger. It’s generally mounted on the wall and secured into the wheelchair restraints.

Only need a vehicle with wheelchair restraints for a short time? Talk to us about short-term renting.

STEPS AND HANDRAILS

Many large minibuses and vans have a high ground clearance, making it difficult for elderly and mobility-impaired people to step up into the vehicle.

To help, we have a wide range of steps and grab-handles. These are available in bright safety yellow and a variety of styles, including:

  • manual fold-out step mounted in step well
  • manual slide-out step mounted under the vehicle
  • automatic slide-out step mounted under the vehicle
  • left-hand floor-to-hood grab handle
  • right-hand floor-to-hood grab handle
  • handle mounted on an A pillar.

Please call our friendly team to discuss your requirements on 1800 811 626. We’re here to help!
