Vertical Platform Lifts
Vertical Platform Lifts (or VPLs for short) are very useful for helping a wheelchair user travel between levels of a home. They are similar to elevators and use constant pressure switches. A VPL generally consists of:
- A lift tower with either a hydraulic or ball screw drive mechanism
- A 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
