Unenclosed wheelchair lifts may be one of the easiest adaptive devices you can install for wheelchair accessibility. Cost and space friendly, unenclosed wheelchair lifts can be installed on porches, mobile home decks, stages, office entrances, stadium seating, churches and more. This may be the answer you’ve been searching for when looking for accessibility for wheelchairs and scooters.
Some users may look at an unenclosed wheelchair lift and be hesitant to use it. Have no fear that unenclosed wheelchair lifts have been designed with the utmost safety in mind. Unenclosed wheelchair lifts have been designed using the patented A.W.A.R.E. Diagnostics System: Active Wiring, Accessories, Relay & Electronics Diagnosis System. This is a fully functional on-board diagnostics system to manage and monitor every critical function of the lift and is available only through your local Access Distributor.
