Wheelchair Stair Lift Specialists
One of our specialities at Invalifts, is the installation and servicing of the wheelchair stair lift. The wheelchair stair platform lift provides many establishments with the perfect solution to the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act without major structural changes. Access into many buildings is restricted by a flight of steps, the wheelchair stair lift can provide disability access into the building in these situations.
The option of having a curved wheelchair stair lift gives the added functionality of being able to park the platform away from the bottom/top of the stairs. This then enables clear access to the stairs allowing able bodied individuals to use the stairs while the wheelchair user safely exits the platform lift.
Over the years we have found that every staircase is different and every wheelchair user requires a different configuration but the over riding principle that we use at Invalifts is that the wheelchair user must be safe and must be comfortable. Our wheelchair stair lifts all come with soft start/stop and high quality safety barriers as standard. An optional third wheel barrier can also be fitted if required.
Our Inva StairRiser can be installed in both internal and external environments which makes it the perfect solution for entrance steps and changes in interior levels. The lift is fully Part M compliant with a platform size of 1250mm x 800mm (smaller sizes available). Its sleek design means that when folded it only stands 250mm from the wall making it aesthetically pleasing and unobtrusive. The upper stainless steel rail has been designed so that it can be used as a handrail thereby making the whole installation an integral part of the building. The Inva StairRiser can be mounted on stanchions instead of wall mounting the unit thereby making it a very effective unit in areas where there is no supporting wall.
We have installed wheelchair stair platform lifts throughout the UK in a number of different types of building, including churches, private residences, schools, care homes, listed buildings, hotels and retail units.
