Inclined Platform Lifts

Inclined Platform Lifts (IPLs) merge the best attributes of vertical platform lifts  and stairlifts to transport wheelchair users along the incline of one set of stairs. Between uses, the lift folds up and away, offering easy access to the stairs leaving no obstacles to maneuver around. IPLs are available in packages that meet ADA Compliance. They are an excellent mobility solution where there are available space issues in a building’s situation where an elevator or vertical platform lift are not practical. IPLs can be installed in a home if there is enough clearance. Durable materials make these IPLs work in exterior or interior applications.

The IPL traverses a single flight of stairs by traveling along a rail system mounted alongside the stairs. Selecting the correct IPL model depends on many factors such as whether the lift goes over a straight flight of stairs or has curves and if it has intermediate landings. Other considerations are how often the IPL will be utilized and various clearance requirements for landings and overhead areas.

I was very satisfied with Home Elevator of Houston. Jay, the owner, saw to it that all aspects of the design were coordinated with the builder. In the end, any issues that arose while fine-tuning the elevator, were promptly corrected and the result has been an elevator with no issues and flawless operation. Best Regards,
