Commercial Vertical Platform Lifts

Vertical Platform Lifts, or VPLs, are very useful for helping a wheelchair user travel between levels. Lifeway has over 20 years of experience in the installation and service of commercial platform lifts. We have installed thousands of lifts in schools, churches, restaurants, offices and other public buildings. VPLs are similar to elevators but use constant pressure switches.

Commercial VPL Features:

  • Lift Tower – with either a hydraulic or ball screw drive mechanism
  • Platform with solid sides that is attached to the tower. When in use, the platform moves vertically up and down along the tower.
  • Key Operated Controls at the upper and lower landings as well as on the platform

Commercial VPL Safety Features:

  • Solid metal walls on either side of platform keep legs and arms out of harm’s way when lift if moving
  • Upper landing gate at the top landing is secured with an auto inter-lock. The gate will not open when lift is not in place, ensuring no one will fall to the surface below
  • Safety underpan lifts automatically and stops from descending if anything is detected under the lift
  • Emergency stop switch on the platform; push to stop, pull to reset.
