ADA Compliant Commercial Pool Lift
The AmeriGlide Pool Lift is a comfortable, easy-to-use solution for swimmers who have trouble getting in or out of a swimming pool. The sling seat is fully submersible and designed for comfort, with a foot plate and arm rests that offer support or can be folded out of the way. The sealed hand control is simple to operate so the person using the lift can control how low or high the seat goes. The AmeriGlide Pool Lift lowers to 26" and is ADA-compliant for the new regulations that go into effect in 2013. Four concrete anchors mount into the deck 4" deep for security, and the pool lift easy unbolts from your deck for seasonal storage.
Special features include a hand controller and battery pack that are easily removed for storage inside until the lift is needed eliminating the problems associated with unauthorized use at pools without life guard staff. This lift is manufactured by lift experts to the same demanding quality standards that have made AmeriGlide the lift leader in the USA. Quality from top to bottom in design, operation, and construction to provide years of low maintenance service.

Effective January 31st, 2013 all Public Accommodations (including hotels, resorts, etc.) must bring certain elements of their facilities into compliance with 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. This is an extension of the previous deadline set for May 21st, 2012.
If your public accommodation or facility includes a swimming pool, a wading pool, or a spa you will need a fixed pool lift (unfortunately a portable lift will no longer meet ADA Standards) to ensure you meet the requirements. Basic items of any compliant pool lift include:
- Lifting capacity of at least 300 lb.
- A footrest must accompany the seat into the water (exception: for spas)
- A rigid seat is advised but not required
- Controls that a patron can operate from both the pool deck and from within the pool without assistance.
Please Note: A manually cranked or manually rotated lift is NOT ADA compliant.
