Elevators installed with more than 4 inches of “gap space” between the hoistway doors and the elevator car doors can pose a serious safety risk. Children may become entrapped in the space and could be seriously injured or killed. This risk can be reduced with the proper installation of space guards at each floor.

3 Tips To Choosing The Perfect Wheelchair Lift For Your Home

Woman Using Wheelchair Lift

There several things to consider before purchasing a wheelchair lift.

If you or a family member depends on a wheelchair, it is important that you can navigate around your home easily.  You need to access every level in your home on a daily basis, so you think about investing in a wheelchair lift.  It is critical that you take time looking for the perfect wheelchair lift that will meet all of your, or your family member’s, needs.  Luckily, there are a few simple tips to choosing the perfect wheelchair lift for your home.

Inside or Outside

When choosing your wheelchair lift, you should have an idea of where you need to install the lift on your property.  If you have steps or a deck leading to your front or back entrance, you will need a solution other than the stairs. A wheelchair lift is essential inside your home if you have a staircase and need to access other levels of your home,.  A wheelchair lift from Preferred Elevator is small and compact so that it can fit in any space, inside or outside

Platform Lift

If you need to access anything on different floors, then you should think about a vertical platform lift.  It is the perfect service to access your yard or deck and will get into your home safely. All you have to do is roll onto the lift, press a button to go up or down, and then exit the lift safely.

Incline Lift

When it comes to accessing your staircase in a wheelchair another option is an incline lift.  The device allows you to go up and down your staircase safely whenever you want. An incline lift transports you diagonally along your staircase so that you can get to your other floors.  An incline is small enough so that you can install it without it impeeding anyone else from using your stairs.
