Use this 3-part SimpleSpecs™ master specification to specify wheelchair lifts.
Wheelchair lifts provide access to different levels of a structure at less cost than an elevator and are used by individuals in wheelchairs and with physical limitations.
The units are sized to allow for use by a single wheelchair or up to two individuals. They can be installed at indoor and exterior locations with proper weather protection.
The lifts can be either electrically or hydraulically operated. Speeds are rated in feet per minute minimums.
Platforms are manufactured of steel in various sizes and designed to accommodate various weight capacities.
The lifts are made to be durable and safe. They have an anti-abrasion skid plate, preventing the wheelchair from getting caught on any surface it passes.
The lift has a steel frame with rails that are powder coated for rust resistance and durability.
