Which Is Best For Your Business?

Ensuring accessible and inclusive premises for all individuals is not only an ethical responsibility but also essential for businesses in Australia. When it comes to providing smooth access to different levels of your building, two popular options are the Stair Lift and the Platform Lift. Each solution offers unique benefits and features, making it crucial for business owners to carefully evaluate their specific requirements before making a decision.

We will compare both options to help you determine which is best for your business.


Stair Lift: Enhancing Accessibility with Versatility

A Stair Lift, often referred to as a Wheelchair Platform Stair Lift, is designed to provide wheelchair users or people with limited mobility a convenient way to traverse stairs with ease. The system consists of a platform that moves along a track mounted on the staircase, facilitating smooth vertical movement. One of the main advantages of a Stair Lift is its versatility and space-saving design.

Benefits of a Stair Lift:
1. Minimal Space Requirements: A Stair Lift takes up minimal space, allowing other stair users to navigate freely when the lift is not in use.
2. Easy Installation: Stair Lifts can be quickly installed, making them a practical solution for both indoor and outdoor settings.
3. Convenient Storage: Many Stair Lift models can be folded and stored when not in use, further maximising the available space.
4. Customisable Features: Stair Lifts come with various features and configurations to suit different requirements, making them adaptable for diverse settings.

One of our most popular Wheelchair Stair Platform Lifts is the V64 which stands out as an excellent choice where ramp construction is not feasible.


Platform Lift: Seamlessly Connecting Levels with Style

If your premises lack suitable staircases or have limited space for a Stair Lift, a Platform Lift might be the perfect solution. Platform Lifts, also known as Low Rise Platform Lifts, function similarly to elevators, allowing users to travel vertically between two levels. They offer a stylish and compact design that blends effortlessly with any setting.

Benefits of a Platform Lift:
1. Space-Efficient: Platform Lifts offered by Easy Living Platform Lifts require minimal space and most options do not need a load-bearing wall, offering more flexibility in their installation.
2. Indoor and Outdoor Use: We have a range of Platform Lifts suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications, ensuring accessibility across your entire premise.
3. Versatile Finishes: With a wide range of finishes available, you can choose a Platform Lift that seamlessly complements the aesthetics of your building.
4. Convenient Installation: The installation process for Platform Lifts is relatively straightforward and doesn’t require a pit or machine room.

One excellent option, the LU100 Low Rise Platform Lift, boasts Danish design and manufacturing excellence. Its free-standing design, advanced safety features, and 24/7 call centre assistance make it an ideal choice for both residential and commercial environments, bridging level differences of up to 1m.
