Vertical Platform Lifts

Canwest provides non-proprietary vertical platform lift products and value based maintenance contracts.

Opal – This unenclosed vertical platform lift is ideal for rises under 6 feet. The product works great for access to stages, exterior accessibility to above-grade decks or landings or when you have an elevation difference in a building that cannot be serviced by a ramp.

Genesis – The Genesis utilizes an open cab style. It can be purchased as either a “shaftway” style or an “enclosure” style. These lifts have the ability to use a gate at the upper landing rather than a full height door. Fire doors can be purchased for this device when dealing with a fire separation. This lift has a capacity of 750 lbs and operates using constant pressure controls.

CPL – The device comes with a full height cab complete with a ceiling. Code will allow for travel up to 7 meters, so for greater distances this is an appropriate product. The unit comes standard with fire doors and a can have a capacity of up to 1400lbs. The CPL operates using constant pressure controls.
