Side steps can assist with access in and out of vehicles if you have difficulty with the step height. They come in a range of different sizes and options, the steps fitted by Brook Miller Mobility’s vehicle adaptions team come from two of the market leading brands; Thule and AMF-Bruns.

Thule Side Step


Thule Side Step

The sidestep which is fitted most frequently by the Brook Miller Mobility vehicle adaptions team is the Thule Slide Out Step V18 12V.

The Thule Slide Out Step V18 is a fully automated high quality sidestep, for assistance getting in and out of your vehicle and provides easy safe access.

The footboard is made out of strong corrugated anodised aluminium and has safety non slip strips on the step surface. The front of the steps has rounded corners with no sharp edges as an additional safety feature.

The steps connect to a safety warning light inside the vehicle. This warns you if the steps have not been stowed away prior to travelling in the vehicle, so you can never set off with the steps unknowingly still out. They also can be fitted with an optional audible buzzer.

The Thule Steps have the option of being fitted with a LED strip light for optimal visibility in all conditions.

In the event of a vehicle power failure the Thule steps can be manually stowed away.

The maximum weight they support is 200kg.

It has integrated brushes to prevent water, dust and dirt entering the mechanisms and a multifunctional cable outlet to again avoid infiltration. However, it is possible to remove the footplate should you ever need to clean inside the step.

The steps come in 3 size options meaning they are suitable for a wide range of vehicles; 400mm, 550mm and 700mm.

Please contact us if you have any questions about suitability and compatibility.

AMF-Bruns Side Step


AMF-Bruns Side Step

We also fit a range of AMF-Bruns boarding aid adaptions suitable for a side loading door at Brook Miller Mobility to assist with boarding and alighting your vehicle.

This electric step for side loading door is compatible with the Renault Master, from the Brook Miller Mobility range of wheelchair accessible vehicles available through Motability or private purchase.

The range of step options include Electric steps, fold out steps and fixed steps. All of the below side steps are suitable for a maximum weight of up to 150kg.

Electric Steps


Electric Steps

The Electric steps have a big, wide tread with anti-slip surface. They are made from an aluminium anodised perforated plate with stainless steel guides making them completely weather resistant.

They are operated via a rocker switch and have an in-out time of just 4 seconds. The electric step is also available in a fully automatic option which deploys automatically when the side door is opened.

Telescopic fold out steps


Telescopic fold out steps

The telescopic fold out step is a manual fold out step which is quick and easy to operate and can be done using one hand.

It has a non-slip surface and has the additional advantage that when the step is stowed away whilst the vehicle is moving it sits in and fills the complete area of the original step well giving you a great floor surface area and larger space for the wheelchair position.

Fixed steps


Fixed steps

The AMF-Bruns fixed steps are made of robust hot-dipped galvanised steel construction.

They are fully weather resistant and provide comfortable access.

No electrical connections are required.
