Public or Commercial Porch Lifts

When used in public or commercial applications there are usually many rules and regulations which govern the porch lift's installation, features and use. In Ontario, Canada, a public or commercial application is defined as an installation in a building where there is no family or more than one family normally resides but this definition varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

Public porch lifts can be portable or standard and are not much different than lifts used in residential applications. When purchasing a porch lift for a public or commercial installation you are basically buying a residential lift which has been upgraded with extra safety features.
