ADA Compliant Commercial Wheelchair Lifts
Commercial wheelchair lifts are commonly found in school buses, full size vans, transit buses, trains and many other mass transportation vehicles. What makes commercial wheelchair lifts special is their lifting capacities of well over 800 lbs. This additional lifting capacity is usually accomplished with a two point lift for the platform known as as a dual post lift design. This design will not only allow for the increase in lifting capacity, but also greater vertical travel and a larger platform to allow even the largest power-chairs enough room to load.
To ensure the lift you are considering will safely handle your needs, be sure to look out for lifts recmommended and tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). They are the governing body that watches over lift manufactures and regulates safety and reliability.
