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.

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.
