Wheelchair lifts are designed for two-storey accommodation, used by wheelchair users and people who have restricted mobility. They are commonly described as vertical lifts, platform lifts, through floor lifts, disabled lifts or homelifts / home lifts.
- These are small lifts that will fit into any home to provide freedom of the whole house.
- Home wheelchair lifts can be located in any downstairs room and move up through an aperture in the ceiling to the room above (usually the user's bedroom).
- When not in use the lifts can be parked at either level, leaving maximum living space available.
- Dolphin lifts Kent are approved suppliers of domestic wheelchair lifts from two of the UK's largest manufacturers, Wessex and Pollock.
Below or to the right, a simple illustration shows the operation of a typical wheelchair lift in action between two adjacent floors installed in a home.
Notice how when the wheelchair lift arrives on the bottom floor, the design safely and perfectly seals the gap in the ceiling area.
