Wessex VE Fully Enclosed Homelift


Wessex domestic wheelchair lifts logo

Wessex, famous for creating remarkable home lifts, have added the remarkable Wessex VE fully enclosed, through-floor home lift for UK and European customers.

Without doubt, the Wessex VE home lift is indeed a striking mix of superb engineering, safety considerations, and careful thought, with users uppermost in mind. 

On the feature and benefits list shown below, through the application of advanced design techniques, you can discover how the fully enclosed VE Homelift applies safety, flexibility, and independence, as crucial components in a smart solution.

New Choices And Options For Moving Between The Floors Of Your Home

Dim lights

The Wessex fully enclosed VE Homelift, provides additional transport choices. You can move between floors with either:

  • A wheelchair user, plus a standing carer. Or ...
  • Multiple people standing. 

So no longer do you need to just transport a wheelchair user alone. Yet wheelchair user independence is still a key factor should users prefer to make their own way up or down between floors.

Greater Illumination With Careful, Ergonomic Design

In addition to other desirable features, your VE Homelift allows you to enjoy:

  • Illuminated, ergonomically designed lift controls to allow for clear, easy access.
  • Even greater independence when choosing the powered door option.
  • Doors that can be set to open left or right side depending on your preference - and changed later if required, or if you want to move your lift to another location.

Multiple Lift Installation Options

Your VE Homelift does not require a load bearing wall. We can install your lift free standing at a suitable location agreed between you and your lift engineer.

Demonstrating Conformance To Safety Standards

The entire range of Wessex VE Homelifts are designed to meet the stringent British Standards safety requirement of: BS5900:2012
