PROTEKTOR 2.0 Retractors


The PROTEKTOR 2.0 retractors have an ergonomic profile and an impressive aesthetic design. The compact design reduces weight and is a space saving solution. Thanks to the design, even large wheelchairs can be secured in a small space. The red lever accentuates the release button and contributes to the state-of-the-art design of the retractor.

  • Single tensioning knob
  • Floor anchorage points with L-Track Fitting or Smart Fitting
  • Available with J-hook, carabiner or loop attachment
  • Durable zinc die-casting cover

    • CMVSS 209
    • CSA Z605
    • AS2596
    • ADA
    • RESNA WC18

For its intuitive use, ergonomic, function, and design concept, the PROTEKTOR 2.0 system received the RED DOT DESIGN AWARD 2020.

In parallel with this development, AMF-Bruns has always constantly tested the PROTEKTOR system according to worldwide standards since the 1970s.

In all tests, the safety results of the PROTEKTOR system always exceeded the required safety standards. Even in the case of heavy electric wheelchairs, the PROTEKTOR system provides more safety than any other system. Dynamic crash tests at a speed of 31 mph and a deceleration of 20 G, numerous static test series, as well as practical driving tests with wheelchairs and anthropomorphic test devices prove this repeatedly.

AMF-Bruns’ high standards are complemented by dedicated work in national and international standards committees. Close cooperation with institutions including TÜV, the Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt), the Dynamic Test Center (Switzerland) and the Union Technique de l’Automobile, du Motocycle et du Cycle (France) ensures constant improvement and control of the PROTEKTOR system.

SAFE DIVERSITY: The floor anchorage offers L-Track Fitting and Smart Fitting. The wheelchair fastening can be connected via J-hook, carabiner or loop. The AMF-Bruns PROTEKTOR system is even easier, faster and safer to use than any other system on the market. It is compatible with all wheelchairs and vehicles and is ideal for use with wheelchairs with an integrated lap belt.

Where Does Our Inventory Come From? A.K.A. "Donor-Vans"

The majority of the vans we source for both our (Mobility Dealer re-sellers) and retail consumers arrive from the large rental car companies such as: Enterprise, Avis, and Budget. When rental vehicles reach pre-determined mileage limits (which vary between rental car companies) they are de-fleeted or removed from inventory, safety inspected, then offered up for sale at public dealer auctions. This is where having long term relationships in place with the Rental-Car Fleet Managers truly pay’s dividends. This relationship also allows us “first-pick” of only the best examples available on the market at that precise moment. In fact, we purchase these (pick of the litter vans) several at a time.  In doing so, it reduces our costs by avoiding additional auction and transportation fees, that would otherwise be passed onto you. By avoiding the fiercely competitive used-car market auctions, we’re able to purchase vehicles at a fair price. Unlike the retail automotive giants such as; Carmax, Drivetime, and Carvana. Which end-up paying a premium price for blemished vehicles, simply based upon market pressures to stock available inventory.

In Bob the Builder’s “Market Watch” Adaptive Vans CEO Bob “The Builder” Boston will show you what the current and available used market van prices are. Including special purchases of new vans from various automotive sources if we feel they warrant our attention.

We will then easily categorize them by each manufacturer:

Dodge Caravan, Toyota Sienna, Chrysler Pacifica

This information will then be updated as wholesale market conditions change in real time. With this inside information, you’ll clearly see what you will and should pay for a van PRIOR to the conversion based upon our pass-through, insider-wholesale pricing.

So, take it from me “Bob the Builder”; Don’t overpay for a wheelchair accessible conversion because the competition refuses to provide transparent pricing. Factory direct savings means you pay a fair, non-inflated, transparent, wholesale price for the van AND the best possible conversion price available on the market now.

Give us a call today and allow my experienced Sales Team the opportunity to serve your Family through every step of the process. Because we’re not satisfied until your new accessible van is built, delivered and parked in your driveway!

Just thought you should know!
