Inclined Platform Lift
An inclined platform lift carries a passenger with wheelchair up and down a single flight of straight stairs by traveling along a rail system mounted alongside the stairs. These lifts can be installed in a home or commercial space wherever an elevator is not practical.
The motor is housed on board the unit with no need for a machine room. The folding platform, available in ADA-compliant size, allows easy access to stairs when the lift is not being used. Call or fill out the form below to connect with our inclined platform wheelchair lift specialist today!
