Artira Inclined Platform Wheelchair Lift
The Artira inclined platform wheelchair lift is a safe and reliable way to travel between floors for passengers in wheelchairs and those with limited mobility.
This wheelchair lift fits easily in to most stairways and does not require extensive renovation or special construction. A mains power connection is required at the upper landing. Beyond that, there is usually no other preparation required. Garaventa Lift installation technicians normally install Artira lifts in 3 or 4 days.
The Artira is ideal for providing accessibility in heritage buildings, schools, churches and restaurants. With the availability of many colors and finishes, you can be sure that the wheelchair lift will blend in with any decor. It is the ideal solution for accessibility in tight spaces, or where floor space is very valuable. In restaurants, for example, the dedicated space required for a vertical platform lift can instead be used for an additional table. Accessibility can be provided by an inclined platform lift which requires minimal dedicated space. The profit from the extra table can help pay for the lift!
Garaventa inclined platform lifts are ADA approved as a means to provide public accessibility. The ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) recognize that inclined platform lifts provide a valuable access solution. They can be used as part of an accessible path of travel to enter and travel within a building. They are most often used in existing buildings or to access special use areas, such as stages, projection rooms, press boxes, bleachers and metro trains station platforms. Use of inclined platform lifts in new construction is restricted in some jurisdictions. Contact your local Garaventa Lift authorized representative for more information.
Features of the GSL Artira
Highlighted below are some of the many standard features of the GSL Artira wheelchair lift. For more extensive information, consult the Artira Design & Planning Guide or contact your local Garaventa Representative.
The Artira Call Stations are operated by a computer based lift control system that intuitively guides the user through the operating sequence by illuminating the appropriate button to push. Fold and unfold functions are fully automated by simply pushing the easy to use call station buttons.
The ultra-quiet Drive System is located at the upper end of the Artira and is available in two arrangements; the standard Drive Box and Compact Drive, both drive systems operate using Mains Power.
Curved Safety Arms
The Curved Safety Arms are fully automatic. When in the guarded position, the inside dimensions of the arms do not take away from the clear platform size of the wheelchair lift.
The durable and vandal resistant platform control panel consists of two large illuminated Directional Control Buttons and an Emergency Stop Button.
Under Platform, Bi-directional and Leading Ramp Sensors
The sensors will automatically stop the lift if the platform should encounter an obstruction.
Smooth Start and Stop
The GSL Artira reduces the speed of travel by 50% prior to reaching corners and is programmed to slow the platform travel speed when approaching or departing the landings.
Pedestrian Safety Lights
This illuminated tube lighting is located at the base of the ramps visually alerting pedestrians of the platform's location during travel.
Emergency Stop Button
When pushed this large red button will immediately stop the lift.
The Artira is finished in a durable polyester powder paint coating that is electro statically applied and baked. Garaventa's standard color is Satin Grey (fine textured).
