Platform Lifts for Homes

Throughout the 21st century, the platform home lift has been gaining in popularity.

There are two major reasons for this new trend in vertical transportation:

1.      Families are future-proofing their houses. We’re all living longer, which is great, but it takes planning. Many couples want to be sure they can continue to enjoy the home where they raised their children as they get older. The installation of a compact lift for homes guarantees them access to all floors.

2.      The Development of Flexible Platform Lifts. These were originally designed as an access solution for wheelchairs. Over the last 20 years platform lifts for homes have evolved to become an ideal fit for all kinds of houses. They are large enough to carry one wheelchair, or up to 5 standing occupants. Platform lifts are best when accessing 2-4 floors, and run at a slower speed than traditional passenger lifts.

Why Choose a Platform Lift?

The domestic passenger lift is normally constrained by the size of the property, and the existing architecture. Where lifts are designed into the plans for property it’s perfectly possible to include a lift shaft. For the majority of extant domestic properties in the UK, however, a lift shaft just isn’t practical.

Platform lifts, unlike passenger lifts, do not require a lift shaft. Platform lifts for homes can be designed for use in a range of ways:

•      Straight Inclined or Curved Inclined.  A platform lift can help with stairs access, no matter the contours of your staircase. The Tower Lifts design team has even create an elegant platform lift for a spiral staircase.

•      Step Lifts.  If your property has split level flooring, or a short flight of steps inside or out, the step lift is the perfect solution. Also known as a low rise lift, it can transport people, or a wheelchair, seamlessly between levels.

•      Vertical Platform Lift. This is reminiscent of a traditional domestic passenger lift, but it’s much smaller. It travels at a speed of 0.15MPS, and is ideal for houses with 1-4 floors. The cabin can be customised for wheelchair, or standing use.
