Ricon Corp. has unveiled a new line of wheelchair lifts for school buses.

Company officials said that the TITANIUM line of wheelchair lifts is engineered with high-strength steel alloy construction that enables true 1,000-pound capacity.

A new Dura-Touch control pendant features a shock- and water-resistant case.

The Ricon Safety Zone surrounds the passenger with safety features for optimal security during lift operation, according to Ricon officials.

“The TITANIUM combines service-proven, heavy-duty design and new features to deliver superior performance and value,” the company said in an announcement.
