How to choose Vertical wheelchair lift?

Electric wheelchair lift, which we also call wheelchair elevators, were originally designed to help the disabld or people with limited mobility go up and down the stairs. Due to the rapid development of society now, more and more people have the conditions to be in their own homes or Install a vertical wheelchair lift for their others. There are many vertical wheelchair lifts appearing on the market now, so how do we, as a customer, choose a vertical wheelchair lift?

What is the vertical wheelchair lift?

First of all, we must first understand what a vertical wheelchair lift is.

The vertical wheelchair lift is mainly to solve the problem of elevators for wheelchair users the disabled, or stretcher beds. Initially, it was mainly used in public places (such as stations, shopping malls, etc.), where there are steps or higher floors. For people in wheelchairs, their movements are very inconvenient, so these elevators are needed to help them cross some. Obstacles that are not easy to cross or help them reach higher floors. Therefore, when elevators are equipped in public buildings, vertical wheelchair lifts must be installed.

But now more and more people choose vertical wheelchair lifts even at home, in order to make it easier for the elderly at home or wheelchair users to travel and go up and downstairs.

The vertical wheelchair lift currently mainly uses the principle of hydraulic lifting. Because the hydraulic elevator has a larger load, more reliable performance, and more durable, low maintenance costs, and there is a low cost-effective barrier-free.


The difference between vertical wheelchair lift and conventional elevators?

In addition, many people will ask, what is the difference between the vertical wheelchair lift and the elevators we take  a daily basis?


The appearance is different: the vertical wheelchair lift will be equipped with a deputy control panel for the disabled, a braille button, a half-length mirror on the rear wall of the car, a voice announcement, and three-sided handrails.

The application situation is different: vertical wheelchair lifts are suitable for wheelchair users visually handicapped persons or stretcher beds to enter and use; ordinary elevators serve a number of specific floors in the building, and their cars run in at least two rows perpendicular to the horizontal plane Or permanent transportation equipment that moves on a rigid track with an inclination angle of less than 15° from the vertical.

The installation requirements are different: vertical wheelchair lifts must be equipped with elevators in public buildings. The design of barrier-free facilities in the waiting hall requires that the depth of the waiting hall is greater than or equal to 1.80m; the button height is 0.90-1.10m; ordinary elevators operate Load and unload cargo between at least two rows of vertical or rigid rails with an inclination angle of less than 18°.

The use requirements are different: the vertical wheelchair lift requires that the passenger elevator cannot be used as a freight elevator, and it is absolutely not allowed to load flammable and explosive materials; if an ordinary elevator is moving up it will stop at the first floor immediately without opening the door,and then return to the first floor station , And automatically open the elevator door.
