A leading supplier of quality platform lifts in New York, DAY also provides customized installation services. One of DAY’s successful projects was the installation of a Savaria Delta inclined platform lift for Albert Einstein Forcheimer building.
Albert Einstein Forcheimer Building is a private, nonprofit, nonsectarian medical school located in the Morris Park neighborhood of Bronx in New York City. They required a mobility solution to overcome the challenges posed by stairs and improve accessibility within their building. They approached DAY Elevator and Lift for a solution. DAY successfully handled the project by installing a Savaria Delta inclined platform lift over stairs in the Forcheimer building.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][us_single_image image=”19517″][/vc_column][/vc_row]U.S. schools are required to make their campus, courses, activities and services accessible to people with disabilities, including physical access to college buildings, classrooms, transportation, housing, labs, libraries and cafeterias. In the case of the Forcheimer building, DAY’s major challenge was to improve accessibility within the school building over stairs and mainly to the student café.
As a leading supplier of Savaria inclined platform lifts in New York, DAY also has extensive expertise in installing this mobility device. DAY chose the Delta over other wheelchair lift models after a thorough assessment of the client’s site and requirements. The lift was efficiently installed to ensure smooth, safe access over the stairs leading to the student café.
The Delta is specially designed for use with a single level of straight stairs and can carry a passenger in a wheelchair up and down along a rail system mounted alongside the stairs. It is ideal for environments where a vertical lift or elevator cannot be easily accommodated. This wheelchair lift saves space as it does not need a machine room. Its motor is enclosed on board the unit. The ADA-compliant folding platform allows easy access to stairs when the lift is not being used, making this a popular choice for schools, churches and other public buildings. Since it is battery-powered, it can operate even during a power outage. The other key features of this device are:
- Is an affordable accessibility option compared to an elevator or vertical lift
- Can be installed without much structural modification or construction
- Can be factory-built for left- or right-side rail installation as well as front or side access configurations
- ADA-compliant folding platform ideal for commercial use
- Space-saving design with sleek traveling rails and foldaway feature
- Safety features included obstruction sensor system on the platform, non-skid platform with side safety flaps, over speed governor, manual lowering device, keyed access for call stations and emergency stop button
