Braun Industries said it has redesigned its 2009 ambulance models to improve interior comfort and reflect new vehicle styles.

The new custom ambulances feature rounded corners on interior counters, cabinets and benches that are less obtrusive for both patients and crew members, according to the maker. The design is available in each of Braun’s ambulance modules – Super Chief, Chief XL, Raider, EMT and Express. All offer optimal storage, usable payloads and easy maneuverability, the company said.

“Our engineers have designed this updated interior for Braun’s 2009 model year ambulances to provide better movement inside the unit, which can lead to our ultimate goal of improved patient care,” said Phil Braun, the president and CEO. “We build all of our ambulances with an arched roof, a Braun exclusive that increases interior head room and eliminates water from pooling on top of the ambulance.”

Additional benefits, according to the company, include SolidBody construction, in which the floor, roof, sides and doors are all built from brake-formed parts with full contact welded seams to add strength, as well as VitalMax angled fluorescent lighting that directs light onto the patient and eliminates shadows.

The company said its EZ Glide Door allows rescue personnel to safely slide the ambulance door against the module rather than out into traffic. Modules can be remounted several times on new chassis to save customers the expense of replacing entire units, the company said.
