The Vertical Platform Lift (VPL) is a great alternative to an elevator, whether it be a space restraint, travel distance or needing a cost savings code compliant commercial lift. VPL’s come in many different configurations, from complete enclosed hoistways to open air hoistways, from in-line openings to front and side openings with power door and gate operators. With a max lifting capacity of 1,050 pounds and a max travel speed of 30 feet per minute, there is a VPL to fit almost anyone’s needs.
VPL’s can be installed indoors or outdoors. While some models are made from Stainless Steel, most VPL’s come in a durable powder coated steel finish for even the most demanding climates. Suitable for installations in public and commercial buildings, as well as private homes, VPL’s feature an extremely versatile design that can be configured and customized to suit virtually any project requirements and aesthetic needs. They are a great way to provide mobility for people who have a disability and the building design does not allow the space needed for a handicap ramp.
VPL’s can be powered by either an Acme screw drive or a roped hydraulic piston. Both types of drives have the ability to have a battery backup system that will allow normal use of the lift when the main power is not on. With a multitude of safety features including sensors to stop the lift if it senses an obstruction, each lift complies with both national and local codes. VPL’s can be mounted either in a 3” pit or on a solid flat level surface. If no pit is provided, either a stationary ramp or an automatic folding ramp will be installed with the lift.
