According to the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) standards, it is mandatory that a building or structure is made accessible to wheelchair users. For new as well as renovated buildings, there should be barrier-free access between floors. An established low cost provider of commercial office conversion accessibility products, Living Free Home assisted Allstate Insurance, an insurance agency in New Jersey to make their office building wheelchair accessible.
Allstate took over an older building that was once a home and renovated the entire structure to suit their business needs. The agency contacted us to provide a suitable accessibility solution for their building.
With more than 11 years of experience in assisting clients with mobility devices, our team installed a Bruno VPL 3353B Commercial Wheelchair Lift under budget and on time. We found this model to be the most suitable choice taking into consideration the structure of the building and the client’s specific requirements. Lightweight and easy to install, this enclosure vertical platform lift is self-contained and needs no hoistway or shaft-way. With full-size Plexiglas door and panel inserts, this model is an attractive choice for ADA compliance. With 750 lb (340 kg) lifting capacity, this lift ensures safe and reliable public access.
The client was happy with the support provided. State inspections for the building are over and the business has been issued their occupancy permits. With the on-time installation support offered, we were able to ensure that this business meets state and city code compliance.
