The E-Series is the next generation workhorse from a brand that is synonymous with high-quality wheelchair lifts. Trusted for over 40 years, BraunAbility has reinvented the wheelchair lift. A modern take on simple, effective and reliable. But there’s one thing about the E-Series that is more than meets the eye. Its superior platform stability.
We have revolutionized the rigidity of the platform making a performance improvement of 300 percent. The closed box design in the parallel arms is what enables this increase in rigidity.
On a standard wheelchair lift with dual parallel arms, the platform will deflect under uneven loads causing it to sway and skew. This can make anyone on the platform uneasy or even scared. Keep in mind that just by being on the platform you are already in a vulnerable position.
The E-Series wheelchair lifts completely change this, providing a stable and comfortable user experience.
Designed to be a workhorse
These lifts are built to be simple and reliable. To function every time they are used, regardless if it’s multiple times a day or once a year. Whether hot or cold, rain or snow, the E-Series lifts will provide accessibility in vehicles to people all over the world.
The goal of the E-Series is to be the essential lift. There are no unnecessary or costly exclusive features. The design is simple and spare parts are universally interchangeable over the entire series. As an added bonus this design also means fewer points of potential failure and fewer points of service.
Made of Steel
We manufacture the E-Series using the same well-proven steel we use in all our lifts. While steel is heavier than aluminum it has two major benefits. The first one is that steel does not flex as much as aluminum. This makes a steel lift a more robust and rigid lift. To make an aluminum lift rigid you would have to choose a thicker gauge or add strengthening elements of design. This will, of course, increase weight considerably.
The other benefit over aluminum is fatigue cracking. This has proven to be a serious issue with the use of aluminum in wheelchair lifts. Especially in applications where aluminum lifts see heavy use.
The normal service life of a wheelchair lift is usually less than 10,000 cycles. For decades all BraunAbility inboard lifts have been tested to meet our internal requirement of 32,000 cycles, and the E-Series is no exception. In addition to this, we have also tried to closely simulate real-world conditions. We've stressed the base plate welds to a maximum by performing cycle testing on both rigid and flexible floors.
