Vertical Platform Lift Flip-Up Ramps

Flip-up ramps can be used on vertical platform lifts to access openings that are perpendicular to the tower on straight-through and 90◦ applications and are available on all unenclosed lifts. Flip-up ramps can serve as a roll-off barrier in residential applications with a travel of 60 inches or less or can be used in conjunction with a platform gate. Commercial applications using a flip-up ramp and platform gate will require a power gate operator to meet current code requirements.
