Platform lifts help wheelchair users to go up and down stairs. Inclined platform lifts are systems that travel along a rail system mounted alongside the stairs, providing smooth and safe transport for a passenger on a wheelchair. They are ideal for situations where an elevator or vertical platform lift cannot be accommodated. These devices provide convenient multi-level wheelchair access in homes, churches, schools, hospitals, small offices and other public buildings. Reputable dealers in New Jersey offer unique models of these lifts for indoor and outdoor applications. The IL500 Sierra inclined platform lift from Harmar is a perfect choice wherever a stairway lift or vertical platform lift is not appropriate.

IL500 Sierra – Innovative Design

Featuring an innovative design, this model is based on the proven SL600 Pinnacle Stair Lift drive system and utilizes the same track. This lightweight wheelchair lift mounts directly to the stairs and not the wall, and hence does not require any wall modifications to set up, saving time and installation costs.

Designed to carry a wide range of wheelchairs and scooters, the platform lift folds to just 13″ wide when not in use, thereby allowing easy access to the stairs. With a unique worm drive system, the IL500 Sierra is energy-efficient and needs no messy grease or lubricants. It comes with a total weight capacity of 500 lbs. (227 kg) and travels to a maximum height of 40 feet (12.2 meter max) at a nominal speed of 14 feet per minute (4.3 meters per minute). The IL500 Sierra is equipped with a wide range of safety features such as overspeed governor, non-skid surface, ramp obstruction sensors, upper and lower landing limits, under platform safety pan obstruction sensors, drive chassis obstruction sensors and upper and lower final limit. It also comes with a constant pressure rocker switch on platform and radio frequency wireless remote fobs. Other features of the Harmar IL500 Sierra inclined platform lift include –
