WAC 296-96-23710

What requirements apply to lifts for the physically handicapped?

On installations prior to 7/1/2004: Inclined and vertical chairlifts and inclined and vertical wheelchair lifts installed only for use by persons with disabilities in locations other than in or at a private residence must be equipped with a standard electric switch Chicago lock with key #2252. Owners are responsible for properly securing their lift during hours of nonuse.

See WAC 296-96-02370 for key alterations. If code clearances meant for wing walls are installed, the #2252 key requirement is not in effect (see ASME A18.1).

This requirement is in addition to ASME A18.1, and the current Washington state rules and regulations on barrier-free design located in ANSI A117.1 in effect via the State Building Code (IBC).
