There are other requirements that go with vertical platform lifts. The vertical lifts that travel beyond six feet must also must have a full height door. When the door is closed, it must be flush with the inside wall of the enclosure. The upper landing is required to have a gate or door that closes flush with the inside walls of the enclosure. Both doors of these vertical platforms must have interlocks. This prevents access to the enclosure when the platform lift is not at the landing.

Vertical platform lifts that travel shorter distances are not held to the same requirements. The lifts that travel only up to six feet are not required to be enclosed. However, a gate is still required to be on the upper landing to prevent a fall.
