Full-size, commercial, ADA wheelchair lifts & handicap lifts are commonly found in school buses, full-size vans, transit buses, paratransit shuttles, trains and many other public mass transportation vehicles. What makes ADA wheelchair lifts & handicap lifts special is their size and lifting capacities of 800 lbs. to 1000 lbs.
This larger wheelchair lifting capacity is usually accomplished with a two-point lift for the wheelchair platform known as as a dual-post lift design. This design not only allows for the increase in wheelchair lifting capacity, but for also greater vertical travel and a larger wheelchair platform to allow enough room for even the largest wheelchairs and power-chairs.
To ensure the ADA compliant wheelchair lift or handicap lift that you are considering will safely handle your business needs, be sure to look out for lifts recommended and tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). NHTSA is the governing body that watches over commercial wheelchair lift & commercial handicap lift manufactures and regulates their use, safety and reliability.
