-- Many disabled Americans are able to live their day-to-day lives with the assistance of a wheelchair but sometimes there can be accessibility issues in their homes. Most homes either have a stairway or an entrance that may be difficult for someone in a wheelchair to access, even in one story homes. DME Elevators and Lifts carries a range of high quality residential wheelchair lifts and installs them to help increase the accessibility throughout a home for people in wheelchairs. They carry and install vertical platform lift and incline platform lift models to fit stairways, porches, decks, and other spots where mobility is limited.
The two main types of wheelchair lifts, or handicap lifts as they are also called, are vertical platform lifts that travel up and down and incline platform lifts that travel at an angle (http://www.dmelift.com/Wheelchair-Lifts.html
). Vertical platform wheelchair lifts are often installed on a home’s exterior to provide access to the porch or garage, but they can also be installed inside to access multiple floors. These lifts have enclosed and unenclosed models that are chosen depending in height. Lifts that have a travel distance of over 72 inches are generally enclosed with many options available for the glass and panels. The vertical platform lifts from DME Elevators and Lifts are solidly constructed with steel platforms and a number of customizable options to suit unique tastes and needs.
Inclined platform wheelchair lifts are installed for applications in which vertical platform lifts would be ineffective. DME carries inclined platform lift models that can be installed on straight staircases as well as curved staircases. Their straight staircase models include single rail systems that are suitable for indoor and outdoor applications as well as dual rail systems that have a much higher load capacity. Other important features of the inclined platform lifts include a 40 foot travel distance, a speed of 14 feet per minute, and a platform big enough to accommodate wheelchairs and scooters. Several of their main vertical and inclined platform lift models(http://www.dmelift.com/Res-wheelchair-detail.html
) can be viewed on their website.
