Category: Platform Lifts

The Butler Mobility
Vertical Platform Wheelchair Lift (VPL) is the perfect solution for
applications that need wheel chair access, but where stairs are not present.
Butler VPLs are often the most cost-effective solution for a public or
corporate building looking to comply with The Americans with Disabilities Act

As well as
ADA-compliance, our wheel chair lift products meet or exceed all National
Safety Code (ANSI/ASME code) requirements. Our wheel chair lift products are
V.A. approved and have UL® and CSA certified components.

Standard lifting
capacity is 500 lbs.(227 kg.) They have an optional lifting capacity of 750 lbs
(350 kg).

In the event of a power
failure, the standard battery backup will bring the platform up and down as
many as 12-15 times, depending on the age of the battery, the height and the
load, so the user is never left stranded

Safety Features

Our Vertical Platform Wheelchair Lifts
can be equipped with an automatically folding end ramp and guard that locks
firmly in place during operation.  In a power failure, a dedicated lever
transports the wheel chair lift smoothly and safely to the lower level at safe,
comfortable speed.

  • Battery backup is standard.Each wheel chair lift has an emergency stop button standard.
  • Optional key-operated controls provide additional safety and allow for parental control.
  • Slack/broken chain safety
  • Redundant platform safeties
  • Platform safety apron
  • Overspeed governer

Comfort and convenience

All moving parts of the VPL mechanism are carefully concealed to offer a seamless, more attractive appearance
as well as optimum safety. Outdoor installations include an enclosure to provide safety and protection from the elements.


Each of our wheel chair lifts has three directional switches, all within easy reach of the user. One on the platform, another at the upper landing and another at the bottom landing.  Wall mounted controls are available at a small additional cost.  All switches are “momentary” (constant pressure) to meet safety code requirements.
