Butler Mobility Products, a manufacturer of inclined platform wheelchair lifts for over 38 years, announces the new design of their IPL platform. The redesigned platform has an updated new look, in comparison to the more industrial look of the old platform design.
The platform control tube, where the joystick is attached, has been redesigned to now have an appealing curve, giving it a sleek modern look.
The industrial look of the unfinished aluminum tread plate has been replaced by a beautifully coated textured floor plate, combining beauty with the added bonus of a non-slip surface. The thickness of the folding ramp was increased from .125” thick tread plate to .160” thick plate to provide more stability for entering and exiting the platform.
The platform sides have also been redesigned. The old platform sides were constructed in a two piece section with a standardized angle bracket attached to a 1/16” thick side plate. The new design incorporates a ¼” thick solid platform side with an integrated angle bracket. The added thickness of the new design side plate makes for a more durable construction, exceeding ANSI standards. This feature is particularly important for durability of use, especially when the client is using a power wheel chair. Since standard angle brackets are no longer used, every platform side is now designed specifically for the stairway that it is being created for. Having the angle bracket integrated into the platform side allows ease of installation when installing the platform since the angle of the platform side plate is true to the angle of the stairway. The design still allows for a plus or minus 2 degree adjustment on the platform.
The undercarriage of the platform frame has also been modified to compliment the redesigned platform sides. The frame structure has been strengthened by going from the use of a 1-1/2” x 1-1/2” x 3/16” angle frame to a 1-1/2” x 3/16” square tubing undercarriage frame.
Butler Mobility has recently updated the paint color choices for the company’s line of inclined platform lifts, to include the platforms. Previously the two standard colors were beige and brown. Butler is now offering five new beautiful earth tone colors as standard colors. These colors will not only blend well in the home but will enhance the beauty of the stairway. Homeowners will find a paint color choice for any individual home décor.
