Disabled Lifts for Houses


Tower Lifts Install Disabled Lifts for Houses

The installation of disabled lifts in residential environments is hugely important to the people who will use them. Beyond the practical application, a lift that provides access to every part of the house means independent living. No matter what your age, or disability, independence is highly prized. It’s why our design and installation of disabled lifts for houses is such an integral part of the work the Tower Lifts team do.


Installing a Home Lift

Over the past couple of decades the technology around small residential lifts has improved and, in turn, the range of home lift solutions has increased. Tower Lifts designers are now able to make recommendations for lifts that will access all parts of the house, help with moving the shopping and laundry, and even keep you gardening. Disabled clients now have the option to install a single lift, or a vertical transport system that provides a range of ways to access your home.

Types of Disabled Lifts for Houses

Wheelchair lifts for the home need to be easy to install (no lift shaft), small enough to fit into a normal sized house and adaptable to architectural challenges. Over the past two decades Tower Lifts designers have developed a range of creative strategies for overcoming obstacles. You can depend on them to find a bespoke solution no matter the size or shape of your home.

Residential Platform Lifts

These use a platform mechanism to safely transport wheelchair users up steps, from one floor to another, or over split level flooring. There are a number of ways platform lifts can provide independent living:

  • Straight and Curved Inclined Lifts – the platform lift is perfectly designed to transport a wheelchair and user up and down stairs. The lift hugs the contour of your staircase and a platform extends when in use, then retracts, keeping the stairway clear for other users.
  • Vertical Platform Lift this looks rather like a traditional passenger lift, except that it’s designed to perfectly accommodate a wheelchair and user. The vertical platform lift can travel through up to 5 floors, and doesn’t require a lift shaft for installation.
  • Step Lifts these offer access up short flights of steps, or over a split level floor. We often install step lifts outside for disabled clients. They are invaluable if there are steps leading up to the front door, or in terraced gardens.
  • Bespoke Platform Lifts all our platform lifts are custom finished to match the interior décor of the house we’re working in. Some clients go further and ask us to create a seamless integration. In this case the platform lift is completely invisible, until activated.
