The Need for a Wheelchair Lift

When needing to overcome steps into a home, many homeowners realize that they just don’t have enough space at the main entrance(s) to a home or in their garage to install an ADA compliant ramp. As a result, our team has seen homeowners utilize short and steep ramp that end up being more dangerous than practical. One solution that Accessible Systems can offer is a wheelchair lift, also known as a vertical platform lift (VPL).

Wheelchair lifts have come a long way and are more space efficient than ever before. Reducing the amount of space you need to maximize the accessibility to your home. These lifts can be used both inside and outside for heights up to 14 feet and feature weather resistant controls, a specialized coating, and an optional weather canopy. A wheelchair lift can accommodate any scooter, powerchair or wheelchair, and some models can even lift a second person, or caregiver [standing], at the same time.

The Accessible Systems team is an official dealer of Bruno wheelchair lifts and this is the brand we recommend for our customers. These lifts provide safe and reliable performance you can trust.

Why Bruno Wheelchair Lifts?

Made in America – the Bruno company is owned by a veteran who is proud to use only American-made components in the production of these lifts. From the mechanisms inside the machine down to the last screw and washer, every piece is US-made. This family-owned company is based in Wisconsin and stands behind their product with more than 30 years of experience and one of the best warranties in the industry.

High Performance – delivering a smooth, quiet ride, Bruno’s wheelchair lifts have a weight capacity of 750lbs and offer an automatic, self-lowering ramp which makes accessing the ramp easy. The ramp folds up when the lift is in use to create a built-in safety barrier.

Reliability – continuously charged DC battery-powered motor on lifts 10ft or above ensures that your lift stays operational, even during a power outage.

Safe – unit shuts down when the platform touches an obstruction underneath, much like your residential garage door.
