Edges have a lip to hold the floor covering down. This model rises approximately 3mm above the floor and features a central channel so that grit will keep clear from where the restraint is connected to the rail. iii) END CAP: An alloy end cap is available for installation with the low profile rail to facilitate the removal of grit from the channel. 2. OCCUPANT RESTRAINTS. All restraints are independently connected to the floor or wall of the vehicle i) LAP BELT. A seat belt which fastens across the lap. Easy to apply and remove as it connects directly down to the floor rails. A lap belt will provide some protection but does not hold back the upper body. ii) LAP SASH BELT. This harness forms a lap and sash restraint. It connects into the floor tracking and extends to a D ring attatched to the side wall of the vehicle to change the angle of pull thus providing the sash restraint across the upper torso. (Reinforcement of the wall may be necessary to accommodate this). It is available in either a manual adjustment or retractable system. iii) EASILOK. A system where a lockable seat fixture with its own lap and sash harness can be locked into the floor rails. It can be used as a pasenger seat.

CUSTOMISED FEATURES: If existing seats in a van are of a suitable design, they may be mounted onto a lockable seat fixture which allows the seat to be locked onto the floor rail by a central plunger. The seat can be used by ambulant passengers or completely removed when space is required for wheelchairs.

COMMENTS: Belt system can be removed from the floor entirely when not in use.
