ADA Platform Lifts can be a useful part of an accessible route in facilities that are being altered. However, in some situations, they are also permitted in new construction. Platform lifts can be used to create an accessible route to areas including:
- Areas where a ramp is not possible
- Where a platform lift may be more cost-effective
- In California, platform lifts can travel up to 12 feet
- Raised entries, common areas, and work areas.
Platform lifts can also be used in new construction if the topography or other existing site constraints mean that a standard elevator or ramp is not a feasible option. All platform lifts must facilitate unassisted entry, operation, and exist in order to comply with ADA regulations.
