DOMESTIC HOIST DESIGNED TO MAKE LIFE EASIER

If you are one of the 1.2 million wheelchair users in the UK accessing vehicles, safety and ease is a major factor when considering transportation requirements and, can often prove to be prohibitive when planning journeys.

But now, a new range of wheelchair and scooter hoists has been launched which have been designed to make life easier and will give complete peace of mind as its leading vehicle access manufacturer, Vapor Ricon, who is behind the H-Series range of hoists.

Ideally suited to domestic vehicles, the range encompasses six different models which are able to move wheelchairs and scooters from outside the vehicle alleviating the need for manual handling of heavy and cumbersome mobility products.

“This new range of hoists perfectly complements our existing access products such as lifts and ramps which are able to work with both domestic and commercial vehicles,” said Michael Dickinson sales manager Vapor Ricon Europe. “They have been designed to make life easier for our customers as we help them go about their daily business with ease, comfort and reliability.”

The hoists have a lifting capacity of up to 181kg and are suitable for wheelchairs and scooters. The VRH60 and VRH100 models benefit from streamlined designs and are ultra compact, folding down for storage when not in use meaning there is still ample room for luggage or shopping.

But for those who require greater lifting capacity, the VHR181 offers a fully powered lifting and rotation mechanism, extending boom arm and can easily be switched from passenger side to driver side installation to give even greater benefits to its users. Whilst it necessitates more internal vehicle space, its capabilities are perfect for anyone with more robust scooters and chairs.

 

 













The hoists are a welcome addition to our portfolio of lifts and ramps which remain unswervingly popular with our personal customers allowing them the freedom to travel to work, go shopping, visit family and friends and enjoy everyday tasks,” said Michael. “They provide valuable assistance in moving and stowing mobility equipment giving all users peace of mind.”

Vapor Ricon is proud to offer a wide range of domestic and commercial products to aid vehicular access for those with limited mobility. Further information can be found at www.vaporricon.co.uk

The Original 3-Minute Window Is A Clear Winner

We are the company behind the original 3-minute window which hugely benefits from superior engineering and high performance which enhances bus appearances whilst significantly reducing operating down time and maintenance costs!

We know the fitting or replacement of vehicle windows is often time consuming and requires detailed operational organisation. For bus fleets in particular, there are many hours spent off the road due to the process of replacing windows with traditional products and techniques, the bond curing time alone takes up to 4 hours! However, our patented original 3-minute window has been proven to ensure our customer’s productivity is significantly increased!

How it works

The system saves time and money by allowing operators to replace glazing in approximately three minutes. It negates the need to remove the frame from the vehicle because the rapid replacement design uses a unique patented metal retainer system to securely fix the window into the frame. Therefore it is unnecessary to waste hours struggling to remove rubber grommets before replacing windows that have been damaged or marked by graffiti.

Benefits both operators and installers

It’s a totally unique system that offers huge amount of benefits over conventional window systems for both operators and installers. The time alone ensures faster turnaround of vehicle maintenance and for installers there are minimal tools required and, depending on which system is chosen, can easily be fitted from within the vehicle.

Options

The windows are available in both CityView, which benefits from a hidden frame and provides a sleek, seamless presentation of the glazing surface, and Standard frame designs.

To complete the system and offer greater protection the 3-minute window is also fully compatible with Glass Guard. An acrylic and polycarbonate window liner that protects against graffiti vandalism. It is designed to be positioned along the inside surface of the window which allows easy removal and replacement and can be installed in less than 60 seconds!

Both the CityView and Standard styles are available in various configurations to meet the exact requirements and are kitemarked to meet all UK and European standards.

Other available options are tempered or laminated glass, various tints and film treatments and Heat Guard – a solar management glazing.

Our expertise

Exclusive to Vapor Ricon the original 3-minute window has been developed by our sister company, Ricon USA. For over forty years we have designed and manufactured innovative products for the global passenger transportation industry, such as our renowned S and K series of passenger lifts.
