When deciding on a lift for your home, there are some key considerations to take into account. For example there are several types of lift that we supply and install, all of which can be used for various purposes.
Used typically for small sets of steps, these lifts are perfect for homes on a raised platform in order to manoeuvre the steps safely.
Working in a similar way to a Step Lift, these elevators are used to navigate larger steps or taller platforms. Ideal for placing next to small sets of steps so both can be used at the same time.
Closer to a traditional elevator, these lifts typically travel through the floor of your home or building, allowing the occupants to travel from one floor to the other easily.
Typically smaller than a standard elevator, open car lifts are elevators that can travel up to 3m. Suitable for home steps or in shopping centres and places of work.
Working essentially like a larger stairlift, incline platforms travel linearly to the staircase and can be installed in places unsuitable for other types of lifts.
Ultimately, the home lift you choose will depend on several factors. Your level of mobility or disability, your budget and the amount of space available. We supply and install various different lifts that are suited to all spaces, budgets and requirements so whether you require a small step lift for your outside patio or a through the floor elevator to move between the floors of your home, our team of experienced engineers can help.
