Virtuoso Details

Vertical Travel: 12″ to 60″
Capacity: 750 lbs
Lift Footprint: 52″ W x 64″ L

The Virtuoso wheelchair lift is constructed using predominately powder-coated steel, in addition to high-impact thermoplastic windows. These materials enable the Virtuoso to achieve a modern visual appeal, while maintaining a sturdy architecture capable of handling heavy use.

The Virtuoso comes standard in Black; however, custom colors are available upon request. Many customers desire to have their lift painted to match team or organization colors, or a color that blends with the surrounding architecture or landscape.

Thanks in part to the lifting system employed in the Virtuoso, the volume of operation is reduced to a minimum. While both ascending or descending, the Virtuoso wheelchair lift produces an operational volume between 50 dB and 70 dB – just about the level of casual conversation at a restaurant.

The Virtuoso meets all Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) and ASME A18.1 regulations and is therefore a fully ADA Compliant wheelchair lift.

Virtuoso Downloads and Specs

Note about file formats:

  • What is a PDF? PDF stands for Portable Document Format is often used to exchange text documents and drawings without losing any of the data contained therein, such as text, graphics, and more, enabling PDFs to be easily shared and viewed across most devices and platforms, and thus making distributing engineering drawings easy.
  • What is a DWG? DWG files are native to AutoCAD, a software commonly used in creating engineering drawings. DWG files are easily edited in AutoCAD, however, they are large and difficult to store and share. Additionally, DWG cannot be used by anything other than CAD software without it first being converted. This can sometimes make DWG use challenging during collaboration.
  • What is RFA? RFA files are a type of Revit file and they may be loaded into a project or saved externally. Specifically, RFA files, or family files, are used to exchange between projects.
