Vista 2 Commerical Wheelchair Lift Specifications

In compliance with United States Department of Transportation Rules and Regulations 49CFR, Part 38. From The Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 and NHTSA Rule 403 (2004) “Provided to make your spec writing easier.”

The wheelchair lift is compliant with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 403 for platform lift systems for motor vehicles. The lift shall have been tested to a minimum static load of 2400#. The lift shall have 800# rated lifting capacity. The base plate shall be a corrugated designed member to provide rigidity to minimize lift deflection when placed under load.

The power supply shall be a 12 volt electro-hydraulic system operating two single-acting cylinders. The hydraulic power system shall allow for easy removal and field replacement. The operation of the unit shall provide a smooth, jerk-free ride in both up and down directions. The power operation of the hydraulic cylinders shall be of a pull-type design for smooth lifting operation and improved synchronous arm movement. The pivot pins in the trunnion (knuckle) of the pivot arms shall be of stationary design. The hydraulic system shall be regulated by two separate relief valves, one of which is designed to prevent accidental stowing when occupied.

The hand control for lift operation shall be of a one-hand operation design made of durable plastic. The control box will provide user with illuminated functions. The control cable shall be coiled with quick-change connections for ease of maintenance or field change.

A manual back-up system shall be provided to ensure operation of the lift in case of electrical failure. The backup system shall provide a reliable means of manually raising and lowering the lift while occupied. The back-up system shall fold and unfold the platform. The back-up pump shall be integrated with the hydraulic power pack system such that no hydraulic lines or fittings are required.

The platform shall be of steel construction, with two stackable sections for optimized view and minimized blind spots. The platform shall have a minimum usable wheelchair passageway width of 33 inches and a minimum usable length of 51 inches requiring a minimum 57 inch vertical clear door opening. All pivot areas shall be equipped with long life Teflon bushings. The sides of the platform shall be a minimum of 2.5 inches high.

The platform shall be automatically folded and unfolded and fully automatic in operation. The platform shall allow both inboard and outboard facing of wheelchair and mobility aid users. The platform entrance ramp shall be extruded aluminum for weight savings and have raised ribs for traction. The outer barrier must not raise if occupied with 25 lbs. The outer barrier shall be the sole outboard wheelchair retention device and shall be interlocked and comply with the FMVSS 403 requirements. Dual handrails shall be provided to add security and convenience. These handrails shall be 1.25 inch minimum diameter, minimum 30 inches in height, minimum of 8 inches in length, and withstand a 100# force in any direction (including vertical) without permanent deformation. The platform shall have “built in” lighting to meet 404 platform lighting requirements with no auxiliary lighting.

All lift components shall be finished with a baked-on powder coating, which will meet a salt spray test of 1000 hours, to provide corrosion resistance and a long service life. The BraunAbility Vista Series includes, but is not limited to the following model numbers:

  • NVL917IB-2, NVL917FIB-2, NVL919IB-2, NVL919FIB-2
