 The Liftavator Casket Lift is a result and product of the original Liftavator holeless hydraulic design. Churches needing a safe, practical means to transport caskets between different levels now have the option of adding a fully enclosed deluxe cab with automatic controls.

The Liftavator Casket Lift often performs double duty as a handicap lift, allowing the elderly and disabled access to all levels of a church or funeral parlor.

The same design can also transport gurneys or stretchers in nursing homes and medical buildings, all at a fraction of the cost of a full-sized elevator.

The Liftavator Casket Lift is designed to exceed Part XIV of the ANSI 17.1 elevator code for a commercial freight elevator. Rated capacity is 1800 pounds, based on 24 square feet platform size.
