What is a platform lift?

  • Platform lifts have been designed to provide vertical access, where previously restricted, for disabled users – e.g. staircases.
  • They are mainly used to provide access in domestic, commercial and public places, whether this is between one or two floors or providing access into the entrance of a store externally.
  • Many platform lifts can be used internally or externally and can be fitted in an enclosed or open space – dependent upon customer requirements.

Portable Wheelchair Platform Lifts

These versatile portable wheelchair platform lifts can be easily adapted to suit a range of uses and situations. Yes, it’s a portable lift; but it also comes with multiple access options. There is the added benefit of being able to include a safety access ramp which helps secure wheelchairs as they are being transported.

A choice of colours, to help personalise your lift, will ensure it compliments the surrounding area. Another major advantage is the lightweight structure, which allows it to be moved with ease, from place to place. This makes it perfect for buildings with more than one restricted access point. Schools, corporate events and recreation areas find these lifts particularly useful.
