Wheelchair lifts for the home or office
Wheelchair lifts are a type of platform lift specifically developed to make spaces more accessible to those that use a wheelchair or mobility scooter. They differ from other types of accessibility options like stairlifts by allowing the user to ascend or descend while remaining in their wheelchair. Wheelchair lifts in Australia can be installed in residential premises to make it easier to get around stairs and porches, or in an office or public space, which by law must be physically accessible to all individuals under their own mobility. In many cases, a wheelchair lift may be more suitable and cost-effective than ramps. At P. R. King & Sons we can help you find and install anything from commercial lifts for your office complex to portable lifts for events.
A wheelchair platform lift to cross any obstacle
There are two main types of platform lifts: vertical and incline. A vertical wheelchair platform lift is often the preferred option to transit between two levels, such as up or down a porch or ascending different floors. As they can be fitted into almost any building or space without requiring structural changes they are often installed retroactively in buildings that were not designed for a traditional commercial lift.
An inclined platform lift allows the user to ascend an incline. Often this type of wheelchair platform lift is installed alongside a set of stairs. Most models travel up and down on a railing parallel to the barrier, however, this means the weight capacity is dictated by the surrounding structure. Our own inclinator wheelchair lift models travel on a rail set on dedicated concrete foundations, allowing them to be installed virtually anywhere.
