Rotary Lift has all lifts recertified

Posted on August 6, 2013

Every Rotary Lift vehicle lift model currently certified by the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) has been recertified to meet the newest ANSI standard covering lift design, construction and testing in North America, ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2011. These lifts are approved to wear the new certification gold label.

The new standard updates its predecessor, ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2006. To be ALI Certified, a lift must be third-party tested by an independent testing lab to verify that it meets the current standards. The lift manufacturer also must meet production and quality requirements.

As part of the standard update process, all lift manufacturers with certified lifts were required to re-evaluate their listed products to confirm that they meet the new requirements by June 2013.

Rotary Lift has retained its industry-leading status, with all its standard light-duty two-post, four-post, in-ground SmartLift, alignment, low-rise, mid-rise and patented Y-Lift models receiving approval to wear the gold ALI-certified label.

Standard heavy-duty lifts that received recertification include the MOD30 environmentally friendly in-ground lift, the Mach family of mobile column lifts, two-post and four-post models, plus the EFX60 in-ground scissor lift and the parallelogram lift.
