Accessible Systems gives back with the Home Builders Foundation of Metro Denver. In 2011, a vertical platform lift was installed for a young man named Brian. Brian suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of a motocross accident. Brian’s mom was unable to get Brian in and out of the home without the lift.
This Wheelchair Lift in Layton, Utah was installed directly to the doorway to the house. We removed the stairs and didn’t put in the normal wooden platform. With this lift, there was still room to park 2 cars, and the door automatically locks with the lift is not at the top level for safety.
This wheelchair lift was up 2 steps, and saved 16 feet of ramp. This lift is used by 2 people in the house. The platform was custom built to allow for the lift to use it and it still has 2 steps up to the door, so that everyone else can use the steps.
This vertical platform lift was installed in a garage to go up the 3 steps. A Ramp would have taken over 24 feet and more including platforms. This lift has a custom platform with a safety gate that locks when the lift is not in the up position securing the platform. Steps are on the back of the platform and a removable section of the plywood allows for storage underneath the platform.
Here, we designed this tall vertical platform lift in Windsor, CO to be a straight thru configuration. This is the easiest configuration for the user because you don’t have to make any turns as you enter the lift, go up, exit the lift, and enter the house. Everything is a straight shot for a walker or a manual wheelchair or a power wheelchair. In this case, we built a safe, custom platform with the existing steps up the door going down to the right of the lift. These tall lifts can go up to 14 feet in height and operate very quietly. This lift is about 65 inches in height.
We installed a Vertical Platform Lift in the clients garage and re-built the steps leading into the home.
We installed a vertical platform lift on the outside of the customers home. This provides a safe way for you to access your home or deck! The concrete driveway is a great place to install this vertical platform lift. There was a thunder storm right after we installed this lift. Good thing this lift is designed for the Colorado Weather. It was used in temperatures down to 20 below zero F, and over 100 degrees F. This mobile home is a good use of this wheelchair lift because a ramp would be over 40 feet long to go up these 5 steps. The custom deck was built at the level of the door, and the storm door was able to remain. Now when you enter the lift, you go up to the level of of the porch, and the gate automatically unlocks, so that they can enter the home. The durable handrail makes everything safe and the straight thru design make it simple to enter the lift and go straight into the modular home.
Vertical Platform Lift installed in backyard. This will help the customer access their deck in a safe manner.
This 10 foot tall Wheelchair Lift operates like a Home Elevator because it is inside an Elevator Shaft. This home in Arvada, CO has 3 barriers from the garage to the main level on the 2nd floor where the bedroom is located. There are stairs in the garage to a door, and then there is a single step in the living room up to a full 12 stairs to the 2nd floor. Also, in this example the user needed to use a wheelchair and could not walk up a single step or get on a stairlift. For a lower price, this wheelchair lift travels from the garage level where he is protected from the weather, up through the floor of the bedroom.
The entire Dallas Accessible Systems team was honored to install this beautiful wheelchair lift for a Veteran at his home in Plano, Texas. These lifts are ideal for tight garage spaces where a ramp is not a good option. They also offer a good alternative when the front of your home or the back of your home is not easily accessible to install a ramp system. The vertical platform lift allows this Veteran to get out and spend time with his family at Lewisville Lake and attend local church services.
