Disability Lifts for Home


Installation of Disability Lifts for Home Use

A disability is defined by the Equality Act 2010 as: “a physical or mental impairment that has a ‘substantial’ and ‘long-term’ negative effect on your ability to do normal daily activities.”. Examples of disability include: physical conditions which may necessitate use of a wheelchair, chronic lung conditions that affect breathing, sight impairment and debilitating injuries.

Disability lifts for home use are designed to help people who may have trouble climbing the stairs, or carrying laundry/shopping/drinks between floors. They assist people who have enjoyed working in their garden and wish to continue to do so. And they make it possible for people with disabilities connected with age to continue living in their own home for as long as they wish.


Nearly Two Decades of Disability Lifts Installation

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 to overcome any architectural challenges.

Bespoke 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 clients, and then we seek to achieve that within the context of their home environment. Popular uses of platform lifts for disabled clients include:

  • Vertical Platform Lift. This 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.
  • Exterior Step Lifts. Designed to lift a wheelchair 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 even integrate the lift into its surroundings, so it appears only when you need it.
  • Service Lifts for the Home. 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. The lift is easy to fit in a convenient location, and can be customised to the height and size you need.
  • Straight and Curved Inclined Lifts. If you wish to continue to use the stairs for access, the inclined lift helps you to do so. It is designed to carry a wheelchair and user. When not in use it folds back to facilitate ease of access for other stair users. The lift is designed to hug the exact contours of your stairway, and we can even accommodate a spiral design.
