Platform lifts are a fantastic way to regain a freedom once lost in a multi-level home. It’s never easy when you or a loved one must face stairs as an obstacle rather than an access point. However, all is not lost. A high-quality platform lift from Dolphin Stairlifts can revolutionise your mobility, so you’re no longer limited to the bottom floor.
To help highlight all the benefits that platform lifts can provide, we’ve put together this brief overview.
What Is A Platform Lift?
A platform lift is just how it sounds – a platform that lifts up and down. It comes in a variety of sizes and can traverse a varying distance, depending on the size of your home. It’s made of high-quality materials and a powerful, economical motor that makes ascending and descending different levels of your property easy, safe, and comfortable.
The Benefits Of Platform Stairlifts
The main benefit of a platform lift is to provide freedom and comfort to those disabled users who are limited to movement in wheelchairs or mobility scooters. Not only this but they can be installed in a variety of locations. Whether it’s the entrance to a home, the base of some stairs or just to lower down to previously inaccessible areas of a garden, there’s a lift out there to accommodate any domestic or commercial scenario.
Additionally, these kinds of lift are surprisingly economical in there energy usage, and they last for decades when serviced appropriately.
The Types Of Platform Lifts Available
Although platform lifts come in a variety of shapes and sizes, their design can be predominantly split into two styles. Please see below for a brief explanation of these:
Inclined platform lifts are designed to be installed adjacent to a stairwell. They are convenient and relatively easy to install. What’s more, they use existing stairs without the need to create an entirely new area for disabled access.
Enclosed stairlifts operate independently of existing stairwells. They can be necessary for an instance where there isn’t enough space in a stairwell, or if the stairs are extremely high. Regardless of the design required, installations are straightforward and high quality to guarantee ease of movement for all users.
