Garaventa About Us

Creating an Accessible Florida

Karl Garaventa started his company in 1928 in Switzerland providing lifts for farmers in the Swiss Alps. Recognizing a need for accessibility, the independent operation successfully diversified into the design and manufacture of accessibility products in 1978. It was Garaventa that introduced the first curving wheelchair lifts to the North American market.

Today, Garaventa Lift is a world leader in the accessibility industry with a reputation for quality and reliability. With over 50,000 installations worldwide and many innovative products, Garaventa has the experience to solve the most difficult accessibility challenges.

Garaventa Florida is dedicated to the South Florida accessibility market.

We know all about the specific requirements imposed by local codes and regulations. Florida is a challenging state and only experts can help you with the unique challenges: Heat and Humidity for outdoor installations, Hurricane wind loads, Florida building codes, fire marshal and Emergency evacuation requirement as well as county specific permit regulations.

We offer free on-site consulting, feasibility studies and concept drawings. Please contact us and we will be more than happy to help you with your accessibility project.
