So, the Passport Vertical Platform Lift has the ETL Listed Mark – What does that mean?

ETL Listed Mark Vertical Platform Lift

If you’ve explored the EZ-ACCESS webpage for the Passport Vertical Platform Lift, you may have noticed verbiage and a logo declaring the Passport as ETL Listed.  Unless you are a retailer, distributor or local inspector, you most likely have no idea what ETL means.  Here are 4 things you need to know about the ETL Listed Mark and what it means for our Passport Vertical Platform Lift:

  1. What does the ETL Listed Mark mean? – The ETL Listed Mark means that the Passport Vertical Platform Lift has been test by the NRTL and found to be in compliance with all national recognized safety standards for platform lifts and stairway chairlifts as well as elevator and escalator electrical equipment.  It also means that this product will continue to receive periodic follow-up inspections to guarantee that EZ-ACCESS is maintaining the highest level of safety for the product.
  2. Who is NRTL? – National Recognized Testing Laboratory is operated by OSHA and tests products such as the Passport Vertical Platform Lift against 200 safety and performance standards.
  3. How can I verify when a product is ETL Listed Mark? In addition to the ETL Listed Mark logo displayed on the product, there is a seven-digit number which you can use to look up the official Authorization to Mark from Intertek.  Here is the Passport’s Authorization to Mark.
  4. Why did EZ-ACCESS pursue the ETL Listed Mark? Your safety is our absolute top priority and we want your total confidence that our Passport Vertical Platform Lift is tested and proven to be one of the safest wheelchair lifts on the market, and will continue to remain a safe option for mobility users.

We stand behind our Passport Vertical Platform Lift and recommend it as the best solution for mobility users in need of access to a raised deck or porch.  Watch for next week’s blog article when we cover how to decide between a mobility ramp or a vertical platform lift for entry into your home or business.
