Space is a major consideration when it comes to installing an accessibility system in residential and commercial buildings. Some settings cannot accommodate an elevator or a vertical lift. An inclined platform lift is the ideal option in such situations. Available in New York and New Jersey, Savaria inclined platform lifts provide wheelchair users easy access over straight and curved staircases. They can be easily installed and come with a compact folding platform that leaves the stairway free for pedestrians.
Savaria Inclined Platform lifts – Top Models
Savaria offers two models of inclined platform lifts – Delta for a straight flight of stairs and Omega for curved staircases.
Savaria Delta – Featuring a compact design and easy-to-use controls, the Delta easily glides along its rail and carries a wheelchair-bound passenger safely up a straight flight of stairs. Ideal for commercial use, this ADA-compliant platform lift easily folds up when not in use, leaving the stairs unobstructed. The inclined platform lift comes with a maximum load capacity of 550 lb (250 kg) and travels at a nominal speed of 20 ft/min (0.1 m/s). Several safety features such as overspeed governor, non-skid platform with side safety flaps, manual lowering device, keyed access for call stations, obstruction sensor system on the platform and emergency stop button ensure a safe, comfortable ride.
Savaria Omega – This model is an ideal option for buildings that have stairs with landings, directional changes, multiple levels, or curves. Involving minimal construction, this inclined wheelchair lift can be installed along the side of the stairs on either inside or outside curves.
