Types of Lifts

Vertical Platform Lifts

Vertical platform lifts travel vertically, up and down from one level to another. They are available with either hydraulic or lead screw drive mechanisms. We offer open, enclosed, or shaftway models with different lifting heights and weight capacities. Some models provide for various entry and exit configurations. Vertical platform lifts can be installed in your home, garage or adjacent to a porch or deck.

Inclined Platform Lifts

An inclined platform lift is designed to travel on an incline, usually over a flight of stairs or sometimes over a hill or other inclined surface. These lifts can carry a person in a wheelchair, or on a built-in fold-out seat. Our inclined lifts are a good alternative to installing an enclosed lift or elevator in the home due to cost or construction requirements. Inclined platform lifts are especially useful in buildings without a suitable location for a vertical platform lift. Because an inclined platform lift may utilize the existing stairway as its runway floor space is conserved.
