Mobility Scooter Lifts
Anyone who uses a scooter or wheelchair for mobility has likely experienced the frustrating limitations of trying to navigate different levels with steps. Whether in a residence or a commercial building, handicap scooter lifts can eliminate barriers that keep you from going where you want to go. Mobility scooter lifts in several different sizes and styles are available from Nationwide Lifts. Install an electric scooter lift in an indoor or outdoor environment to provide access to various levels in or around a home or place of business.
The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that public establishments such as restaurants, retail stores, and other businesses that serve the public be free of architectural barriers that would prevent people with disabilities from accessing the facilities. This includes entrances, doorways, common areas, restrooms, and other spaces. Buildings must have elevators or mobility scooter lifts that disabled people can use without assistance, or else the equipment must have a call button that a disabled person can use to summon assistance.
A mobility scooter lift can add accessibility to a public building without significant expense. This type of lift can move a full distance of 14 feet at a speed of about 20 feet per minute. With a capacity of 750 pounds, the standard cab size is 36 inches by 54 inches. Custom sizing is also available. For residential or smaller-scale needs, a mobility scooter lift that travels up to six feet can be an ideal solution. This lift has the same capacity and dimensions as the heavier-duty model, but the platform moves a shorter distance. Customized sizing is also available with this model. This lift is suitable for use at an entrance to a home or to provide access to a porch or deck. To provide wheelchair and scooter access at a flight of stairs, an inclined wheelchair lift can carry a scooter or wheelchair up and down the entire staircase. The platform secures to the staircase and the wall, and it folds away when you don’t need it. The capacity of this unit is 500 pounds, and the platform is available in a 25-inch-by-36-inch or 27-inch-by-36-inch size.
