BraunAbility E-Series

Wheelchair lifts you can rely on.

The Essential Wheelchair Lift

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. One of the features it shares with the premium Q-Series is the superior platform stability.

Premium Rigidity

With the Q-Series wheelchair lifts, we revolutionised the rigidity of the platform making a performance improvement of 300 percent.

The design element that enables this increase in rigidity, the closed box, in the parallel arms is also present in the E-Series.

Compliant handrail design

The highly visible yellow handrails is a sturdy point to hold on to for both wheelchair users and anyone standing on the platform.

The hook shape allows the handrails to be held onto in a number of different grips that provides a sense of comfort and stability. The E-Series handrails are of course EN 1756 compliant.

Low threshold

To maximise headroom when loading a passenger into the vehicle we gave the baseplate or threshold if you will, the lowest possible profile.

Even when the lift is in the stowed position the threshold stays very low to the floor and will not act as a potential tripping hazard.

An important requirement if the route through the lift is to be used as an emergency exit.

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.

Safe Descent

Gravity down and power up, that's how all BraunAbility dual parallel arm lifts operate. This system makes it impossible for the platform to come crashing down. Even if there's a sudden drop in hydraulic pressure and the platform is at a maximum load it will still only slowly descend to the ground.

Roll stop

A roll-stop is an important safety feature. It prevents any wheelchair on the platform from accidentally rolling too far and off the platform. The roll-stop on the E-Series is mechanical and goes up as soon as the platform leaves the ground.

E Series Wheelchair Lift

Durable and intuitive hand pendant

Designed to take a beating the robust hand control features two rocker switches that let you control all the functions of the lift: fold, unfold, up and down. The plastic body makes the pendant comfortable to hold in all temperatures.

You can also control the E-Series lift with your smartphone via the Autoadapt Remote app. This requires that your lift is fitted with the Autoadapt Remote receiver kit.

Surface grip

The stretch metal of the platform provides a non-slip grip for shoes and tires. Another benefit of the stretch metal is the holes letting dirt, snow and mud fall through to the ground before entering the vehicle.

Surface coating

The E-Series wheelchair lifts have been treated with the same powder coating as the premium Q-Series. This gives the lifts a superior protection against scratches as well as unsightly fingerprints. An E-Series lift will stay functional and looking new for a long time, even in areas with high humidity.

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 aluminium it has two major benefits. The first one is that steel does not flex as much as aluminium. This makes a steel lift a more robust and rigid lift. To make an aluminium 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 aluminium is fatigue cracking. This has proven to be a serious issue with the use of aluminium in wheelchair lifts. Especially in applications where these lifts see heavy use.

Easy Service

Unscrew a single fastener and lift the pump cover straight up. That's how easy it is to access the guts of the pump module. As an added benefit of this cover design, the lift itself can be installed closer to the vehicle's walls. In other words tighter installations

improved kickout

Improved kick-out


The kick-out is how far out the lift platform reaches. More specific it's the distance between the base of the lift and the platform. The ample kick-out of the E-Series means better bumper clearance and makes installation possible in an even wider variety of vehicles.
