Unenclosed Vertical Platform Lifts are for low rise locations (max. 5'0" in public buildings).
Stage applications are the most common use for the unenclosed lift. They have a safety pan underneath the platform to protect the space below, rather than an enclosure. Some jurisdictions, such as New York City, do not allow unenclosed lifts in commercial settings.
- Flip up Ramp. The advantage of an unenclosed platform lift is a platform with a mounted ramp. We can provide an affordable, integrated 24V power gate operator for this platform. We recommend a pit of 3" to eliminate the incline to board the lift.
- Safety Pan. Unenclosed lifts are equipped with a safety pan under the platform. If an obstruction is encountered, it will stop the lift with 2" and a force of no more than 15 lbs.
- Mast Heater. For outside installations, a mast heater can be installed to protect the hydraulic fluid from freezing.
