There are different types of equipment available to overcome the barriers posed by stairs. Vertical platform lifts (VPLs) are an ideal option for settings where ramps and stair lifts cannot be used. Ideal for use in homes and commercial buildings where space is a constraint, these devices allow wheelchair users to access raised decks and porches without leaving the comfort of their assistive device. Reliable accessibility equipment companies in New Jersey offer high quality platform lifts from leading manufacturers such as Harmar. Harmar’s CPL400P is a portable model that is perfect for use in schools, theaters, churches, and other public buildings.
