MADISON, Ind. (Aug. 6, 2013) — Rotary Lift, a Vehicle Service Group brand, said every vehicle lift model it markets has been recertified by the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI).
The company's lifts now meet the newest ANSI standard covering lift design, construction and testing in North America—ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2011—according to Rotary Lift..
Rotary Lift said these lifts are approved to wear the new certification gold label and updates its predecessor, ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2006. In order to be ALI Certified, a lift must be third-party tested by an independent testing lab, the company said, to verify that it meets the current standards. The lift manufacturer also must meet production and quality requirements.
"When buying a new lift, it is important to look for the gold label because it provides third-party assurance and end-user confidence that the lift has been tested to meet a strict set of criteria for safety and performance," said Jim Dirksen, Rotary Lift vice president of sales and marketing. "Rotary Lift is a strong supporter of the lift certification initiative, which is why we offer more models for testing and certification than any other manufacturer."
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 said it has retained its "industry-leading status" with all its standard light-duty two-post, four-post, inground 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 company's MOD30 environmentally friendly inground lift, the Mach family of mobile column lifts, two-post and four-post models, plus the EFX60 inground scissor lift and the parallelogram lift.
