2020 is almost at an end, and many people are thinking about what their big purchases next year may be. Especially as 2020 is a year that will be best left behind us! If you feel like you have experienced mobility problems this year and have required a wheelchair, then we’re sure that installing a platform lift has crossed your mind at some point. After all, they are a very popular design in most buildings these days and are very unlikely to look out of place where you need them.
So if you are still on the fence of whether one of these convenient – and sometimes necessary – lifts could benefit you in 2021, let’s find out a little more about them.
Aid for those with mobility problems
First and foremost, wheelchair lifts are a vital way of ensuring that those that may have mobility problems have access to all levels of a building if needed. They are spacious to allow for easy wheelchair access, along with the person that may be tasked with pushing them. This allows for a quick way of reaching a certain floor in a building, without worrying that your mobility issues will put you at a disadvantage.
This is why this access solution has been popular with wheelchair users over a number of years and has now become a mainstay in most commercial buildings that are expecting many visitors, or even employees that may require a wheelchair for transport.
Suitable for any building
The relatively small surface area taken up by cabin lifts means that they are suitable for buildings of all shapes and sizes, without requiring too much of a change in the overall flow and structure of the building itself. This gives you every opportunity to include one of these modes of transports in your building, as you never know when they may be needed. In high traffic areas, people with mobility issues will be thankful that you decided to install such devices into your building, so they can still access all levels without being hamstrung and left on the bottom floor.
Promote inclusion for all
If you require a wheelchair or have difficulty climbing stairs, then step lifts can seem like a godsend. They allow you to access the same levels of the building in question as anyone else, without encountering the busy traffic that often occurs on a staircase! Platform lifts mean that your mobility issues do not take precedent over where you need to be, ensuring that you receive the same opportunities that anyone else would.
Installing a platform lift at your business premises can promote inclusion. It ensures that all staff and customers are made to feel welcome and have access to the same facilities – split across varying floor levels. By making adjustments for those that require them, you can open your doors to more people than you would have previously.
Of course, if you are making the investment in one of our many wheelchair lifts, then you are going to want it to last a lifetime. After all, these kind of lifts may come under strain on a daily basis, just like a standard elevator, so you want to know that they are safe and secure, right?
