External Platform Lifts For Wheelchairs

External platform lifts for wheelchairs are ideal for buildings that don’t have the internal space for a lift. These lifts are often found in domestic, commercial and public spaces. Moving in an upwards and downwards direction they offer the ideal solution to wheelchair users and those who find it difficult to use stairs. 

Minimal building work is usually required. The lift is positioned on the outside of the building, with the entrances at each floor level to the inside of the building. They are insulated and weatherproof, and sealed to the building. You can also select a colour to compliment your building.

If you require an external platform lift for wheelchairs, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our experts today.
