If you are in a wheelchair, how do you navigate stairs? Most would probably say that they can’t, but that wouldn’t be entirely correct. In truth, there is an option that many people don’t realize is possible, either for their home or for their commercial space. Having a platform lift in your Milwaukee or Appleton home or business allows people in wheelchairs to access more of the building, giving them the freedom others enjoy. To learn more about platform lifts and how they can provide access to your space, give a call to Access Elevator.
Why Have A Platform Lift?
When looking at choosing a platform lift, it is important to consider a number of different aspects so that the platform lift you choose is the right model. For example, will the platform lift be used by just wheelchair users, or are you expecting a variety of mobility-impaired people to be using the lift, such as those on scooters or even powerchairs? Another consideration is how many flights of stairs or feet does the platform lift need to travel. Will the platform lift be used for just moving people, or will it possibly be used to also move inventory or other items?
Will this platform lift be operated entirely indoors, or do you have a need for an outdoor application of a platform lift? Will this platform lift be a permanent addition for the location you’ll be at for years to come, or is this a temporary placement where you will be moving in the next year or two? All of these and more are important to understand so that your Access Elevator expert can recommend the best platform lift options for your needs.
