Glacier Platform Lift
The Glacier Platform Lift accommodates an Aquatic Wheelchair for the individual that needs assisted stabilised support for entry into the pool or spa.
The Glacier Platform lift is designed for use in commercial swimming pools. The lift has been specifically designed to replace the need for a ramp in a pool having no less than 914 mm deck to the floor of pool at the installation site. This lift is self-operated & electrically (low voltage) powered. The lift is rated for a 272 kg lifting capacity with a safety factor of 1.5.
Operating Controls & Power Source
A four channel radio frequency receiver/transmitter controls the operation of the platform lift. Four wireless handsets are provided to allow operation from pool deck platform affixed to the rail on entry & exit, then two additional transmitters are provided unfixed to the lift. The handsets are operable by either left or right hand & are ergonomically designed for ease of use. The handsets are sealed to prevent water damage. Four control buttons provide directional control, two for vertical travel of the lift & a lockout button to restrict usage of the unit when not required. The operation of the handsets require a constant button pressure. A 24VDC rechargeable battery powers the lift’s drive motor & radio frequency control receiver. A spare battery is provided with each unit. The control box & battery assembly is mounted to the lift & includes a hard wired emergency up/down control switch at the console. A battery charger is provided with an electrical power cord, for remote installation.
The Glaciers’ structural components are fabricated from 304L stainless steel. These stainless components are precision joined using GMAW & TIG processes depending on the thickness & loading of the structure. The stainless steel is electro-polished & passivated in accordance with ASTM A967 guidelines, then the unit is coated with Spectra Shield to ensure maximum corrosion resistance. The majority of the lifting column is skinned with 20 mm grey pultruded fiberglass sheet with a polyester resin that is UV inhibited for extremely long service life. The lift structure is customised during fabrication to the specific pool depth. Final adjustments on site to match the deck of the lift up to the finished pool deck can be made with four pressure feet at the bottom of the structure & an adjustable metal stop on the carriage located within the lifting column.
The lift is fitted with a platform of dimensions 1.016 m x 1.168 m (W x L) (40” x 46”). The platform has two 860 mm high 38 mm 316L stainless steel handrails on each side. The platform structure is constructed of heavy gauge 304L stainless steel & the platform face is pultruded fiberglass T-Bar grating with an extreme nonslip UV inhibited grit textured surface. The platform structure is attached to a blue polyethylene mesh screen, the screen slides on two rails affixed to the lifting column allowing no gaps for entrapment between the net & the lifting column. The screen collapses with the platform as the platform lowers.
The lifting components are made for long life in aquatic environments, & are serviceable to ensure safe & consistent operation. The lifting system is designed as a redundant system to maximize safety & product life. There is a counterbalance to mitigate the loading on the primary lifting system. The primary lifting mechanism is two Stainless Steel power screws joined & driven by a high performance carbon fiber belt designed to outlast any other known drive system of this type, & need no adjustment through product life. The power screw drives the lift carriage through permanently sealed stainless steel food grade bearings & proprietary linear lead screw nuts. The power screw assembly requires no grease & use the pool water as the working lubricant. The carriage rides on proprietary polymer plane bearings & stainless steel rollers, six in total distributes the weight evenly & safely. The polymer plane bearings require no lubrication beyond the pool water.
