A chair lift, also known as a platform or wheelchair lift, is a great home mobility solution for homes with multi-levels and platforms. Much like an elevator, the chair lift functions through the use of levers and cables that pull wheelchairs up and down levels safely.
Whether your home has a small incline or multiple stories, chair lifts eliminate challenges for residents with limited mobility and increase access to all areas of your home. However, not all chair lifts are the same.
Here are four popular chair lift modes for your home:
- Unenclosed Platform Lifts – Stairs don’t have to be a challenge any longer with this unenclosed lift. With an articulating base and carriage, this environmentally friendly design can save energy costs and allow you to move freely about your home.
- Shaftway Platform Lifts – These vertical-style chair lifts are a discrete and attractive chair lift model that doesn’t interrupt the style or functionality of your home.
- Enclosed Platform Lifts – Much like the unenclosed lift, this eco-friendly model allows you to travel up and down levels. However, the enclosed chair lift emulates the look of a home elevator with an enclosed carriage on all sides.
- Hybrid Platform Lifts – Get the best of both worlds with this hybrid chair lift that is customizable and is equipped with a full-height cab and non-load bearing ceiling.
