What do the common stairlift and the trusted lift have in common? They both enable our customers freedom to quickly and easily move from one level in a building to another. In their homes this is important for giving them, and their family, back their freedom and independence which circumstances may have taken away from them.

Though both of these methods constantly work to enable easy and efficient movement throughout a building, they’re not in equal use. In our customer’s homes, you may be surprised to discover, that the archaic stairlift is being used less and less while lifts are taking a dynamic and efficient step into the domestic and commercial lime light.

Platform Lifts Can Be Installed into Any Building

Age, accidents, medical and genetic conditions are all reasons why customers may find using their home staircases difficult. When this happens, you may find that they will turn to the first solution to their problems; a stairlift. Though we hear about the many benefits of a stairlift, the lifestyle of  your customers can instead be greatly improved with the addition of a simple domestic  platform lift into their homes.

Though technology has advanced, we see that the design and overall appearance of the stairlift hasn’t moved much farther than its first conceptualised design. Installing an electronically moving chair into a staircase may work for some stairs but not for all. Narrow or old staircases may not be suitable for sustaining a working stairlift.

Domestic lifts, however, can be fitted into any building for efficient movement. With a wide range of makes and models, domestic lifts can be subtly integrated into the home with personalised bespoke designs. Unlike a stairlift, domestic lifts can be neatly tucked out of the way, drawing little to no attention to them depending on your clients wish.


Integrating Domestic Lifts is a Great Advantage to Wheelchair Users

Sometimes the mobility of our clients, is significantly reduced. A stairlift in their home may make it more difficult or painful to use depending on the extent of a person’s disability. Wheelchair users, for instance, may find using a stairlift significantly harder than users suffering from arthritis.

With their ability to offer easy movement for a diverse audience, lifts have become more and more popular in the home and in commercial environments. This offers more independence for the person in question as well as giving surrounding family members peace of mind of the individual’s safety when moving around the home and businesses.

Changing Your Customers Lifestyle One Building at a Time

How many stairlifts have you seen in shopping centres and business buildings? Stairlifts travel at a slower speed to a lift which can eat up precious time when your clients are and about, not to mention their exposed rails and mechanisms puts them at greater risk of damage.

Platform lifts, however, can be integrated into any building without fear of damage. Sturdy and resilient, their ability to withstand heavy loads makes them far more usable and adaptable compared to stairlifts.
