Commercial Wheelchair Lifts

Commercial wheelchair lifts are commonly found in school buses, full size vans, transit buses, trains and many other mass transportation vehicles.  These lifts will offer lifting capacities exceeding well over 800lbs.  To get the capacity to that level the lifts will feature two lifting points for the platform, commonly referred to as dual post lifts.  A commercial lift will tend to have a greater vertical travel and larger platforms to allow the largest power wheelchairs to fit on for the ride to floor level. The governing body that watches over these lift manufactures is NHTSA and they will continually attempt to find means for safer and more reliable lifts.
