Inclined Platform Lifts
Access multiple levels using the stair way
Incline platform lifts are a great way to overcome vertical barriers when a vertical platform lift or elevator isn’t a practical option. An inclined lift travels over the stairs and folds out of the way when not in use to provide travel for others. They can be installed indoors or outdoors, and can travel straight runs, or around corners or turns, and can accommodate access to multiple levels.
Inclined Platform Lifts
Northstar Lifts offers a full range of inclined platform lifts with professional design, installation, and full- service maintenance. Inclined lifts are available in a variety of sizes and often require little or no structural modification. They can be mounted directly on the wall, on towers mounted on the stairs, or even on towers mounted between railings in many commercial applications.

One of the common challenges to many homes, schools, or churches is to provide access to different levels where there is simply is no good location for a vertical lift or elevator. Often the answer is an Inclined Platform Lift. Inclined wheelchair lifts travel over stairs to provide access to various levels with little or no structural modifications, and eliminate the need for a wheelchair user to transfer to and from their chair.
