Mechanical Lift Analysis
Garaventa manufactures cantilevered platform and inclined platform
lift systems. (Neither of these systems was installed at any of the
courtrooms visited during this Analysis.)
The standard cantilevered platform lift includes a painted steel or
acrylic panelized enclosure mounted to the platform. All panels can be
removed with the exception of the one that has the integrated system
controls and handrail, located adjacent to the operating equipment.
The Acme screw drive mechanism is placed within the metal-clad
`tower' or `mast' enclosure, having a standard height of 5'-1 3/8";
recessed within a wall cavity and serviced by means of a front or rear
access panel. The access panel can be clad with materials that match
tall to allow service access at the top of the `tower'.
