Commercial Lifts

Commercial Lifts For Accessibility.

Our commercial accessibility lifts can be incorporated into the design of any building or retrofitted into an existing structure. These lifts are required to be inspected under the B-355 code, also referred to as the “Lifts for Persons with Physical Disabilities (LPPD)” code. At Uppercut Elevators, all of our elevator and lift products are code-compliant and are installed by a professional team that follows strict safety guidelines.

There are restrictions on the amount of travel (22.9 feet) and the platform size (21 square feet) for commercial lifts. We work with you to ensure the device will satisfy all applicable codes while still meeting the needs of the end-user. Our selection of commercial lifts offers a quiet and comfortable ride and provides accessibility for all.

We install our commercial accessibility lifts throughout the province of Alberta, including Calgary, Edmonton, and Canmore. Our services are detailed, honest, and reliable with safety as our top priority.
