Dahl Engineering’s electric Docking System MK II provides secure wheelchair restraint for an occupant or driver. A lock plate and a spacer must be fitted under the wheelchair. When the wheelchair is manoeuvred towards the docking station, it is guided into place by means of the lock plate and is secured automatically. The wheelchair is released by pressing the red button on the control panel. Dahl Engineering’s electric Docking System MK II provides unprecedented flexibility and safety for wheelchair users. The Docking System has been tested and TÜV certified in accordance with EU safety requirements for vehicles (M1). In testing, the docking station has proven to be so strong that it can withstand a load corresponding to a wheelchair weight of 200 kg provided that the safety belt is installed in the traditional manner in the floor of the vehicle. Dahl Docking Station MK II can be delivered with a fitting kit, which has been tested and approved by TÜV according to ECE regulations 14 and 17 and EU regulation 214/2014. Accessories include a seat base frame that the docking station can be used for either wheelchairs or car seats depending on what is required. It is easy to install the vehicle’s original seat on the base frame, and it is easy to remove if the driver and passenger need to swap seats. The base frame is equipped with holes for the installation of seats such as an original driver’s seat in Nissan NV 400, Opel Movano, Renault Master, VW T5, MB Sprinter, VW Crafter, MB Vito/Viano and Dahl Sport. The seat base frames have been tested in accordance with ECE regulation 14 and 17. The seat base frame can be assembled in 36 different positions for optimum flexibility and comfort, thus allowing the seat height and angle to be adjusted.
