What type of lift do I need?

The two main lifts we install for accessibility are Vertical Platform Lifts (VPLs) andIncline Platform Lifts (IPLs). Vertical platform lifts, as the name suggests, move straight up and down to provide access from the front porch or garage, or from one floor to another. Some models are completely enclosed units and others are unenclosed with safety gates.

Inclined platform lift, on the other hand, move up and down on a set of stairs. Many times they can be placed existing stairs with minimal construction. They take up less space and can even serve multiple flights. There are models for straight stairs and models that can turn corners and go over landings.

We also install a variety of other products that can provide accessibility to homes or businesses
