Vertical platform lifts (VPLs) are a cost-effective solution to make a church, school, office or other public building accessible for people using mobility devices. Sometimes called a wheelchair lift, a VPL provides code-compliant access up to 14’ in a variety of configurations (check with local jurisdiction) and is suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
Benefits of Vertical Platform Lifts
Gain cost efficiencies by installing a vertical platform lift instead of an elevator or long ramp system.
Ramps require 12” horizontal travel for every 1” vertical travel. For example, a 36” rise would require a 36’ ramp. In addition to taking up significant space, ramps can be fatiguing. A vertical platform lift saves space and is automatically powered.
Meets USA ADA Requirements
Vertical platform lifts are acknowledged in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessibility Guidelines as a means to provide public building access. Bruno VPLs are designed in accordance with ASME A18.1 section 2.
Bruno’s commercial VPL standard finish is electrostatically applied with a baked powder coat finish in champagne color. Platform and landing gate parts are E-coated for an extra level of protection from the outdoor elements.
Indoor / Outdoor
All Bruno VPLs are suitable for indoor and outdoor applications. Optional cold-weather package recommended if operating temperature is below 20° F/-7°C.
