 ROOFTOP WHEELCHAIR STOWAGE SYSTEMS

Wheelchair stowage solutions fitted by Cowal Mobility include the Cowal GZ91, Cowal Wymo, Braun Chairtopper, Autochair and Autoadapt Roof Spider. These systems all have their differences and we can best advise you on the most suitable for your needs.

The Cowal GZ91 has been a popular stowage system for over 20 years. Manufactured from stainless steel and fibre-glass, some of our GZ91 owners have found that their GZ91 has outlived their car. Sitting low onto the car roof, the GZ91 allows most owners to drive into their garage and unload their wheelchair, and because the wheelchair is lowered by a stainless steel arm, the GZ91 can be used on steep slopes and in high winds with little guidance from the operator. The lid only raises slightly to allow the wheelchair to slide out from under it, and the lid can be sprayed to match the car colour. Its powerful motor and robust build quality means the GZ91 will  pick up a wheelchair fitted with power wheels with ease.

Unfortunatley the GZ91 is now only available for use on the LEFT side of a vehicle as the manufacturers have decided to no longer cater for the UK market.

The Cowal Wymo is a wheelchair stowage system which is fitted directly onto a roof rack and plugs into your vehicles cigarette lighter. It does not have a box to protect the wheelchair but is so versatile and easy to use, our customers swear by it. Can store a folding or fixed frame wheelchair and is a very affordable rooftop wheelchair stowage system. Comes with water resistant cover.

UNFORTUNATELY NO LONGER AVAILABLE IN THE UK BUT WE HAVE PARTS IN ORDER TO SERVICE EXISTING INSTALLATIONS THROUGHOUT THE UK


ChairTopper

If it’s necessary to stow and retrieve the wheelchair directly from the driver’s seat, a wheelchair hoist in a roof top box is good choice. In this category the BraunAbility Chair Topper is one of the most reliable solutions available and handles most folding frame wheelchairs

 

IN-CAR WHEELCHAIR STOWAGE SYSTEMS

We are now offering the new Abiloader wheelchair stowage system. The revolutionary design is suitable for  MPV's and will store a folding or rigid framed manual wheelchair. The Abiloader is also capable of lifting a wheelchair fitted with power wheels. By the touch of a switch, the rear hatch or boot lid opens and the wheelchair is brought round to the users side by the Abiloaders robot arm. The rear hatch or boot lid is then closed once the robot arm is back in its place.

REAR HOISTS FOR WHEELCHAIRS/SCOOTERS

We specialise in fitting the hoist most suitable for the vehicle, scooter/wheelchair and the users abilities. We are able to advise on the most suitable hoist for the job with no biase as we install hoists from all suppliers.

Whether you require a lightweight hoist or a more robust hoist for a very heavy powerchair/scooter, we are able to undertake the work. With some vehicles, some re-inforcing of the boot area where the hoist base is fitted is required.

We always recommend a tie-down system is fitted to secure your scooter or wheelchair in place when in the vehicle. A tie-down may not be required if the rear seats are upright.
