Many buildings in New York now have platform lifts to ensure smooth and safe vertical transportation for wheelchair users. Leading dealers of mobility equipment offer inclined platform lifts in New York. Harmar’s IL500 Sierra Inclined Platform Lift is ideal for transporting a user in a wheelchair up and down the stairs. Designed for residential use, the IL500 is a perfect choice wherever a stairway lift or vertical platform lift is not appropriate.Featuring a rack and worm gear drive system, the platform lift can accommodate a wide range of wheelchairs and scooters. The platform folds up to just 13″ wide when not in use and allows others easy access to the stairs. IL500 Sierra is an energy-efficient device and needs no messy grease or lubricants. It can be easily mounted to the stairs and not the wall, so that the main carry load is supported by step brackets. Setting up this lift does not require any wall modifications, which saves time and costs.
