Affordable Commercial Platform Lifts for Businesses

by | Jun 26, 2023 | Lifts

At RAM Elevators + Lifts, we believe that accessibility is a fundamental need for all individuals. From people with limited mobility to elderly individuals who require accessibility devices, it’s crucial to ensure that everyone has equal access to public buildings. This is where our commercial platform lifts (VPLs) come into play. Our Commercial VPLs are designed to provide accessibility and comfort to those who require them.

That being said, commercial elevators and lifts can sometimes be too expensive for business owners. However, RAM’s low-rise commercial platform lifts are specifically designed for businesses, institutions, and public spaces looking for a cost-effective accessibility solution. Our VPLs provide a safe way for customers and employees with accessibility limitations to navigate the space with ease. They are engineered to move vertically, allowing for access to different levels and areas of a building.

In this blog, we will explore the importance of commercial platform lifts and how RAM’s low-rise commercial platform lifts can benefit businesses of all sizes. We will discuss the unique and innovative features of our VPLs, their benefits, and how they can help improve accessibility and convenience for everyone in your commercial building.

Do Businesses NEED a Commercial Platform Lift?

Short answer: Yes. Installing a commercial platform lift not only helps your businesses comply with accessibility laws and regulations, but it also shows that you care about their customers and employees. By installing a RAM VPL, you will create an inclusive environment that is welcoming to everyone. This is especially important for individuals with limited mobility who may face barriers to accessing commercial buildings. A mobility solution will ensure safe and easy access for all your building’s occupants, guests and employees.

RAM VPLs Features and Benefits:

As briefly mentioned above, commercial platform lifts can sometimes cost a substantial amount of money and require significant time to be installed in your commercial space. Some commercial platform lifts may even require costly renovations, frequent maintenance and constant repairs. Facing all these challenges can cause many business owners to avoid or delay installing an essential accessibility device. What if we told you that our VPL is a low-rise, low-cost, low-maintenance and low-footprint commercial platform lift that requires minimal site preparation and can be seamlessly integrated into your existing space?

For more than 30 years, RAM Elevators + Lifts have been manufacturing and distributing low-rise commercial platform lifts that are easy to install, cost-effective and space-efficient to many businesses across North America. With our Smart Space Design, you are no longer required to build a separate machine room to accommodate the extra machinery that comes with a commercial platform lift, as our proprietary all-electric drive system is mounted on top of our lift’s rigid guide rail frame. All our commercial platform lifts can seamlessly fit into a standard 96” top-floor ceiling height, ensuring affordable, safe and functional lifts for all low-rise commercial buildings. Our Smart Space Design features also include the following:

  • Small footprints
  • Low overhead clearance requirements
