Installation of Disability Lifts for Home Use
Disability lifts for home use are designed to help people who use a wheelchair to access every part of their home or carry laundry/shopping/drinks between floors. They assist people who have loved working in their garden and wish to continue to do so from their wheelchair. And they make it possible for older homeowners to future proof their family property, ensuring that they can continue to live there, as their needs change.
The NHS estimates that there are 1.2 million wheelchair users in the UK, and two thirds of them use their wheelchair regularly, including in their homes. The need for residential wheelchair lifts is expected to continue to rise over the next decade.
Disability Lifts Installation From Tower Lifts
Tower Lifts is proud to be one of the UK’s leading providers of platform lifts. The platform lift provides disabled access indoors and outdoors, up curved, straight, and spiral staircases, and vertically through up to five floors. This adaptable technology can be quickly and efficiently installed as it requires no lift shaft, and each lift installation is tailored to overcome any architectural challenges.
The benefits disability lifts for home use offer to wheelchair users include:
- Efficiency. Platform lifts are designed specifically for wheelchair users, offering optimum efficiency for home use.
- Independence. Users can wheel themselves directly onto any platform lift and operate it independently. Tower Lifts can design a system providing access to every part of your home.
- Safety. Every platform lift installation has passenger safety as its first consideration.
- Interior or Exterior Installation. Disability lifts are robust and durable. They can be installed on the outer wall of your home, in the garden, or as an aid to accessing short flights of steps.
- Enhanced Value to Your Home. A carefully designed wheelchair access system will be attractive to buyers with similar disabilities.
Beautifully Designed Disability Lifts for the Home
Tower Lifts designers and installers use platform lift technology as a starting point with which to deliver what disabled clients require. We always begin by gaining a clear understanding of what a disability lift needs to provide for our clients, and then we seek to achieve that within the context of their home environment. The 4 most popular uses of disability lifts for home use are:
1. Vertical Platform Lift
The vertical platform lift looks like a traditional passenger lift except that it is designed to accommodate a wheelchair with user. It is capable of travelling through five floors, and its speed of 15mps means that it can be installed without a lift shaft. The cabin can be customised to each individual user, and the design is usually tailored to match your interior décor. If there is a lack of space indoors, it can be installed externally.
2. Exterior Step Lifts
The step lift is made of durable materials capable of handling cold, heat, snow, and rain. It is designed to transport a wheelchair and user up a short flight of stairs, or a split-level surface. Tower Lifts often install these to facilitate access where there are steps leading to the front entrance of a home. Alternatively, they can be used in split level, or terraced gardens. We can also create a bespoke step lift that is integrated into its surroundings, appearing only when you need it.
3. Straight and Inclined Lifts
If you plan to use the stairs for access, the inclined lift helps you to do so easily, safely, and efficiently. The mechanism is designed to hug the contours of your staircase, whether straight, or curved, providing elegant transportation for a wheelchair and user. We can even create a stylish platform lift for use with a spiral staircase. When not in use the platform folds back to facilitate ease of access for other stair users.
4. Small Service Lift
The dumbwaiter lift does all your lifting and carrying between floors. It was originally developed to service the country houses of the aristocracy. Now it’s found in restaurants, shops, and homes. This small, cabinet style lift is simple to install in a convenient location and can be customised to the height and size you need. An ideal solution for transporting shopping, laundry, food, or drinks.
