ALI (Automotive Lift Institute) governs the safety standards for automotive lifts in the U.S. ALI Certified lifts must all pass the exact same testing, material and operational standards. This testing covers the structural integrity, proper control function and even overloading the lift beyond its rated capacity. The procedures are PASS - FAIL. Either you get the sticker or you do not. Rotary, Forward, Mohawk and ATLAS Certified Lifts are all subject to the exact same production and testing standards.
If a product carries the ALI Gold Label you can be assured that the equipment and the manufacturing facility it is produced in are in compliance with the ALI Standard. The facilities are audited at least two times, yearly, to guarantee the process and product adhere to the ALI Guidelines.
IBC or International Building Code is in use in all 50 States. This Code states that for every region governed by IBC, automotive lifts must adhere to the ALI Standard in order to obtain permits for lift installation in new construction buildings.View The ATLAS Directory of Certified Lifts
