Mechanical Lift Analysis
A cantilevered platform lift is manufactured by Concord in fixed
position or portable unit model. The platform movement is controlled
by a hydraulic cable drive. Operational controls are housed in the
panel, fixed to the platform, and adjacent to the drive mechanism
tower; therefore, this panel must be retained in any design scheme.
The fixed position unit was used to provide access to the judge's bench
at the Williamsport, Pennsylvania U.S. Courthouse, visited as part of
HDR Architecture, Inc.
