Wheelchair Roof & Boot Loading Wheelchair storage & loading

Chair Topper

Lift, load and transport your folding wheelchair using a roof top box. Convenient and keeps your boot free.

The SDL Chair Topper is a convenient and easy to use wheelchair storage solution that lifts and loads your wheelchair safely and quickly into a purpose-built Aerodynamic rooftop storage box. Designed to be aerodynamic and weather-tight, the rooftop box allows you to transport your wheelchair without taking up any space within your vehicle. The wheelchair is stowed in just 30 seconds, so you won’t be hanging around waiting.

Choose from the driver or passenger side loading models, and experience the convenience of having your wheelchair loaded from your car door. The Chair Topper fits most cars, not just estate cars, allowing greater accessibility and convenience for all wheelchair users. The integrated manual backup system gives you peace of mind that you’ll never be stranded, no matter what.

Weighing just 55kg, the fibreglass storage unit can be mounted on most vehicles. With wheelchair included, the total weight should not exceed 75kg, making it suitable for any vehicle with a roof loading capacity of 75kg or more. The Chair Topper adds a height of just 54cm to the vehicle, so it will still fit inside a standard garage. As for wheelchairs, the Chair Topper can take most folding frame models weighing up to 20 kg.
