People often choose a vertical platform lift instead of a ramp for certain applications due to space efficiency and ease of use. Because there must be a foot of ramp for every inch of rise, a ramp can become very long for the space and tiring for the mobility device user.
You will most often find residential vertical platform lifts on porches or decks to provide access into the house from the outside. In some cases, people need a VPL in their garage for access into the house.
The most common method of powering a vertical platform lift is normal household (AC) current. However, the VPL will not run in an electrical outage if powered by AC. Therefore, the safer and more reliable means is battery operation. Even in a power outage, a battery-operated VPL will be able to travel several round trips. Bruno 4- and 6-foot VPLs come standard with AC power, and optional battery operation. In Bruno VPLs above 10 feet, battery operation is standard.
The price of a Bruno vertical platform lift varies depending on configuration, model and any chosen options. Application site prep work, required electrical work and permits (if necessary) can also impact the final cost. Bruno's local dealers provide free quotes and consultations to ensure they recommend the right Bruno VPL solution for your needs.
While a Bruno vertical platform lift is a free-standing unit, there are several common site prep considerations prior to installation. Because a concrete pad is required for a VPL to create a proper approach for a wheelchair or scooter, there may be concrete work needed. In addition, there might be preparation needed for the landing gate to be installed at the top landing. Also, it may be necessary to run electricity to the location of the VPL to power the VPL or the battery charger.
A Bruno vertical platform lift includes everything needed for proper, safe usage of the device, but there are also several popular options. As the VPL travels upward, the platform ramp folds to stop a mobility device from rolling backward. An optional platform gate can give an extra level of safety and security. Rather than pulling a platform gate open manually, some people also choose to add a power operator that opens the platform gate with a push of a button. There are also many optional platform sizes to accommodate various size mobility devices.
