Features and Benefits

Redefining transit safety by combining securement expertise, intelligent technology and the latest in modern design.

REARWARD FACING. FORWARD THINKING.

Independence

QUANTUM offers mobility passengers the dignity and independence to secure themselves. The simple one-touch operation offers users a safe and secure ride while keeping drivers in their seat and focused on the road. With QUANTUM, safety never depends.

Quantum Rear-Facing

Rear-facing Securement

As the preferred securement method worldwide, rear-facing securement is now being widely adopted in North America. Providing enhanced head and neck protection, it is proven to be one of the safest securement solutions available. QUANTUM is also the industry’s most expedient securement system.

Driver Control

Drivers can remain focused on the road because QUANTUM gives them the flexibility to manage wheelchair securement from dashboard controls at the driver’s seat. If a passenger is unable to press the advanced button by CAPTRON™, drivers can easily activate QUANTUM to secure a wheelchair or return the station to stowage allowing passengers to exit the vehicle.

Low Maintenance

Maximizing safety while minimizing complexity was a key focus when designing QUANTUM. Through extensive field and lab testing we were able to develop a basic maintenance schedule that ensures optimal performance with minimal hassle.

Transit Tough

With its stainless steel construction and durable over-mold grips, QUANTUM is built to endure the wear of everyday transit use. The solid framework will withstand the harshest of environments, remaining easy to operate over thousands of cycles.

Quantum Obstacle Avoidance

Smart Sense Technology

Not even the hustle and bustle of a city bus can stop QUANTUM. Advanced sensor technology allows QUANTUM to detect obstacles that interfere with its path, whether it be a standing passenger or a rogue vegetable. After three failed securement attempts, QUANTUM waits for the operator or passenger to reinitiate activation.

Modified Backrests

Realizing the necessity for variations, QUANTUM backrests come in sleek, neutral designs that meet technical standards. The durable build can easily handle the wear and tear of regular everyday use, without sacrificing comfort. When required, lap and shoulder belts can be integrated into the backrest, offering passengers ease of use and peace of mind.

Time Saving

With wheelchair and scooter securement in 25 seconds or less, QUANTUM removes unknown variables and helps keep busses on schedule. With QUANTUM, everyone gets going – safely and on time.

More Room for Everyone

QUANTUM’S sleek design was carefully crafted with compact storage in mind. The securement arms fit seamlessly under modern theatre-style seats, maximizing center aisle clearance and allowing for additional seating. QUANTUM gives everyone the freedom to move, maneuver or remain safely in place.

Smart Capture

Prior to departure, QUANTUM’S intelligent design captures wheelchairs and scooters at half the force, giving both driver and passenger the opportunity to make adjustments as needed.

Continuous Grip

No need to worry about slippery floors, inclement weather or poor driving conditions. QUANTUM continuously monitors grip throughout the journey, automatically readjusting to keep wheelchairs and scooters completely secure.

Quantum LED Lighting

LED Lighting

Proper warnings help avoid mishaps by keeping passengers alert. That’s why the QUANTUM design team took extra care in developing the LED lighting system around each moving arm. Clear auditory signals also remind passengers to be conscious of the station when the arms are in motion.

Approachable

Engineered to blend beauty and functionality, QUANTUM boasts a rugged build that remains equally inviting. Let’s face it, nobody wants to enter a vise, but everybody wants to be restrained securely. QUANTUM provides the right balance – a solid stainless steel frame and soft, yet durable over-mold rubber that will not damage wheelchairs.

Compliance

The Quantum Securement System meets or exceeds all current regulations for rear-facing transit, European Directives and ADA/CSA requirements.

The Quantum Backrests conform to the performance specifications of FMVSS 201 or ECE R 21, FMVSS 302 and ISO3794.

The Quantum Backrest

We designed two unique versions of the QUANTUM backrest to meet N. American and International standards. The International model features a long, narrow backrest, while the US version utilizes a shorter, wider backrest, as per ADA standards. The US version also includes an integrated lap and shoulder belt.

These ultra-durable backrests feature heavy-duty vinyl and are built to withstand the wear and tear of consistent everyday use without sacrificing comfort. Both versions employ a neutral color scheme that allows for easy adaptation into all transit interiors.
