Our lifts also prevent the risk of serious injury, allowing passengers to transfer in a way that’s safe and comfortable- they enable them to remain in their wheelchair.
Vertical Lifts are said to be versatile and although they have a similar function and purpose to elevators, they are a cost-effective alternative to make.
Are Vertical Lifts Common in Businesses?
Often Vertical Lifts are required in businesses to offer a more convenient solution for accessing the premises. Instead of installing wheelchair ramps, which can be unsightly, we provide the Vertical Lifts to enhance the appearance of your commercial building. As well as this, ramps can take up an awful amount of space which doesn’t make your building look any more presentable.
Vertical Lifts are common in businesses. They tend to be found in schools that require wheelchair access because they are so spacious and reliable. By installing Vertical Lifts in your school, you essentially show that you accommodate for all needs and wants; ensuring that people who are physically challenged can still access the facilities and services that you have to offer!
Our Vertical Lifts are guaranteed to provide a solution for mobility, and this applies to any municipal buildings, theatres or offices. The way our Vertical Platform Lifts work is simple; they operate similarly to an elevator, transporting passengers safely and efficiently but without the heavy price tag.
Businesses usually choose Vertical Lifts to allow passengers to travel in confidence, maintaining a sense of privacy and comfort.
Where Is The Best Position For A Vertical Lift?
There is no right or wrong place that a Vertical Lift can be installed, it’s extremely versatile. Whether it be in the home or the workplace, the Vertical Lift is a fantastic addition to make and makes your property more welcoming for an array of visitors.
As a result of the Vertical Lifts being manufactured from high-quality, durable materials, they find a place within any home or business.
The best places to install a Vertical Lift often tends to be somewhere visible- somewhere that can be easily seen. When used inside working environments, Vertical Lifts allow for easy transportation and ensure that health and safety standards are met. In addition to this, the Vertical Lifts are designed to enhance employee safety.
Positioning Vertical Lifts near the stairs is also a good idea. To save wheelchair users attempting to climb the stairs, the Vertical Lifts make it much easier for them to reach various floor levels. A Vertical Lift from Level Lifts is designed to provide sufficient space for wheelchairs and carers.

How do vertical platform lifts work?
The way vertical platform lifts work is straightforward.
A screw pole runs the entire length of the shaft while a motor on the platform drives a nut that’s attached to the screw.
Both the motor and nut are affixed to the platform wall. When the lift is operated, the motor drives the nut, causing it to rotate around the screw.
When this happens, the lift will go either up or down, depending on which direction it is turning.
If the motor stops suddenly, the lift won’t fall or ‘dread drop’, it will simply sit on the thread.

Are all vertical lifts suitable for outdoor use?
Vertical platform lifts come in all shapes and sizes and can be used in domestic and commercial settings.
Whilst some of the vertical lifts we supply can be used outdoors – providing a convenient means of entry for wheelchair users and people with reduced mobility – this is not the case for them all.
If you’re looking to make your property more accessible from the outside (i.e. if there’s a steep ramp or steps leading up to your door), we recommend the British Style Platform Lift. This vertical lift can be used indoors and out, and travels a maximum of 7m (5 stops).
