The Head Technician and Owner of Roberts Elevators & Lifts, Doug Roberts, has been approached for his opinion of how a full-carriage vertical platform lift (also known as a Commercial Traction Lift, or CT Lift) can be incorporated into a commercial space to provide wheelchair accessibility. His statement was featured in an article referencing the use of Vertical Platform Lifts vs. LU/LA Lifts, published in Elevator World’s February 2017 Edition. The article was created to assist people in how to differentiate between lifts and elevators in North America, and how to choose between a traditional passenger elevator, a LU/LA elevator, a stair lift, or an inclined or vertical platform lift.
Doug’s quotation referenced his experiences here in the British Columbia market, when discussing the application of a Commercial Full-Carriage VPL (CT Lift):
“While this type of full carriage vertical platform lift device may not be well known in the industry, we have been using it very successfully in the Vancouver market for over 10 years to help save clients’ money, while still accomplishing an elegant accessibility project” says Doug Roberts of Roberts Lifts ( www.robertslifts.ca ).
