How Inclined Platform Lifts Can Benefit You
Whether you have to use a wheelchair or scooter, getting from one floor to the next can be a challenge. However, an inclined platform lift may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Here’s how it can keep all levels of your home accessible.
What is an Inclined Platform Lift?
Inclined platform lifts help you and your wheelchair or scooter navigate the stairs in your home by letting you travel diagonally from one floor to the next. As complicated as the system seems, this option is fairly straightforward. You simply move onto the semi-enclosed platform, flip the switch to move up or down your staircase, and you’ll be transported to your destination.
To keep you safe during your ride, there are several safety features implemented into inclined platform lifts. Each lift has an emergency stop button as well as a battery backup in case of a power outage. If an outage occurs, the battery will be able to move the platform up and down five times. Other safety features include slack/broken chain safety, platform safety aprons, safety clutch, and much more. Inclined platform lifts have a 750-pound capacity and include a five-year warranty on all parts.
Installation Options and Services
Inclined platform lifts are designed to be less invasive during the installation process. The walls in your home require no modifications and the rails attach to the sides of your staircase. The power supply is placed on either the right or left side at the bottom of your stairs. Both of the rails only use four inches of your stairway when the unit isn’t in use. This ensures that other members of your family are safe when going from the different floors too.
When choosing an inclined platform lift, many people wonder about the color options. Butler Mobility Products offers five different earth tone colors at no additional cost to you. The colors include Autumn Brown, Weathered Chestnut, Sierra Foothills, Manor Stone Gray, and Coastal Beige. These natural colors are easy to match with your home’s current color scheme.
