Home Lifts for Disabled


Tower Lifts Installs Home Lifts for Disabled Users

For mobility impaired clients the installation of a home lift has to be a priority. Whether you’re having difficulty managing the stairs, or you’re a wheelchair user, a home lift, or residential platform lift provides access to every floor of your home. Tower Lifts has been designing and installing home lifts for disabled users for over a decade now.

There are two models of lifts that we would recommend for disabled users; a home lift, or a platform lift.


What is a Home Lift?

Home lifts are designed specifically for use in a private residence. This means that they are much smaller that normal passenger lifts, normally accommodating only 2-4 people. Their footprint is typically compact, and they don’t require a shaft, machine room or pit, making them easy and efficient to install. Home lifts are customised to integrate with your home’s interior, and are DDA compliant.

What is a Platform Lift?

A home platform lift is also known as a wheelchair lift because it is designed to accommodate the size and weight of a wheelchair and user. The speed at which a platform lift travels is much slower than that of a traditional passenger lift. For this reason it can be installed as a modular structure in the home, requiring no pit, or shaft. Platform lifts can be installed on a stairway, or as vertical transport between floors.

Safe Access to Every Part of Your Home

The safety of passengers is our prime concern at Tower Lifts, whatever type of lift we’re installing. We have a flawless safety record, and comply with the most current standards and regulations. For disabled passengers, the most important safety factor when using a residential lift is the ease of use. Wheelchair users have no need to remove themselves, they can simply wheel themselves into the cabin or onto the platform, and select a destination from the customised control panel.

We can make a number of adjustments to our passenger cabins to make vertical transport safe and pleasurable:

  • Glass Walls. Many clients prefer transparent doors and walls to an opaque design. The lift retains natural light throughout the journey, and visual contact can be maintained with family, or a carer as the lift ascend, or descends.
  • Control Panel. This can be customised to ensure it’s easy to reach for the primary user. If you’re sight impaired, we can enlarge the buttons, make the ergonomically friendly, and add Braille if required.
  • Handrails. These can be fitted inside the cabin, and on the exterior approach to the lift.
  • Size. This can be adjusted to accommodate your wheelchair, plus a standing carer if required. For mobility-impaired passengers without wheelchairs, you can decide how many people you want your lift to transport.
