If you have difficulty using stairs, or use a wheelchair or mobility scooter, then installing a Wheelchair Lift is a great way to ensure safely and convenience every time you enter and exit your home. Vertical platform lifts are used to overcome differences in height which prohibit the use of a wheelchair or scooter.
A vertical platform or porch lift provides an attractive and practical solution for making your home accessible for a wheelchair user. Alternatively, installing a ramp necessitates large amounts of time and money to build and uses more space than the simple and inexpensive wheelchair lift.
When installed indoors a Wheelchair Lift offers an affordable alternative to residential elevators.
A wheelchair lift can be customized to accommodate new or existing buildings with little or no modification.
The Trus-T-Lift system can be installed indoors or outdoors (i.e. as a porch lift) and is designed to be completely resistant to the harshest weather conditions.
Our wheelchair accessible vertical platform lifts are easily installed and have a lifting range from 28" up to as much as 12 feet (144"). The Trus-T-Lift system is installed worldwide and is an economical way to offer home / building accessibility.
