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.

Wheelchair Lifts Add Accessibility to a Home

Wheelchair Lifts Preferred Elevator

Wheelchair lifts don’t take up a lot of space

Wheelchair lifts, like stairlifts, add so much convenience to your home. You can use wheelchair lifts to travel from floor to floor on the inside of the house, but these lifts have outdoor applications as well, allowing you to spend time on your deck or in your yard and enjoy the warm summer sun. Overall, wheelchair lifts add accessibility to a home, and we’ll explain how. 


Wheelchair lifts give you the freedom to access more areas of the home. These lifts also give you more flexibility to stay in your home for many years to come, or at least more had you not found a solution to travel in your home safely. This benefit is especially beneficial for elders who prefer not to enter a nursing home and want to Age in Place. The beauty of any of our lifts is that you can convert your home to accommodate changing physical needs, at any age. 

Wheelchair Lifts Save Time and Money

Depending on your level of independence and health, you may find that you don’t need as much help from family or friends and may not need to hire a home healthcare worker. Adult children of aging parents often have to balance taking care of their loved ones and themselves and their families, all while still working. A wheelchair lift can save caregivers some time and energy. A wheelchair lift can also save the homeowner money so they won’t have to hire a home healthcare worker unless it’s absolutely necessary. 

Wheelchair Lift Installation Isn’t Extraneous.

When our technicians come to install any lift in your home, you won’t have to worry about the lift taking up a lot of space and being an eyesore. Installation is compact and quick to install. Compared to ramps, wheelchair lifts do not eat up an entire yard or room and can be sleek, slender, and attractive. They are also quiet to use!
