FOR ANY BUILDING CONFIGURATION
Wheelchair lifts are a great solution for disabled individuals who require a wheelchair for mobility, walker users, or those who have difficulty with stairs. Wheelchair lifts can either elevate vertically or at an incline over a flight of stairs and are appropriate for indoor and outdoor lift applications.
Vertical Platform Lifts
Vertical platform wheelchair lifts are a widely used solution to overcome architectural barriers in schools, churches, and office buildings, as well as many homes. Versatile and cost-effective, they are available in a variety of sizes, configurations, and drive types. They can be installed either indoors or outdoors, and are made to withstand the elements, even in harsher climates like upstate New York.
Inclined Platform Lifts
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.
Enclosed Platform Lifts
Enclosed lifts are standard vertical platform wheelchair lifts that come with their own enclosure or shaft way; typically aluminum or steel framing with steel panels, plexi-glass, or safety glass panels. Enclosed lifts can be customized and incorporated as an annex onto a building’s existing structure to provide an individual shelter while using the lift to enter the structure.
