Design for commercial use, the Global wheelchair lifts are fully automatic and operated by an attendant using the standard handheld control. Important safety features such as the inboard barrier, the roll stop, and the handlebars are painted in high visibility yellow.

All BraunAbility lifts are high-quality workhorses and the Global lifts are no exception. These lifts are very popular and prove themselves daily all over the world. Each unit goes under rigorous scrutiny both during and at the end of the production phase. We do this to ensure a lift that will do its job and continue to do so for a long, long time.
The mechanical inboard barrier provides extra safety for the user and peace of mind for the operator. The integrated dual handrails is a sturdy point to hold onto and an added sense of safety for anyone traveling up or down on the platform.
Rear or Side door installation
The Global wheelchair lifts are designed to be installed in either the vehicle’s rear or side door.
The Global series come in two different platform types. A standard solid platform and a stacking platform (GVL). With its low profile when stowed, the stacking platform can be used to either provide unobstructed visibility or to fit a larger platform in a vehicle with a lower roof.
In the event of a complete vehicle electrical failure, the Global series are equipped with a manual backup system. This allows the operator to manually raise and lower the platform using a hand pump. The backup system is easy to use and fully functional even under high loads.
Tested and approved
The Global series wheelchair lifts fulfill the requirements and bear the CE-label. In addition to this, they are also EMC test approved.
