05 Aug Why This Wheelchair Lift Is Perfect For Your Commercial Venue
Universal access to buildings has long been a challenge. People are differently abled, so it’s crucial to design structures with a variety of access-enabling features.
The project of ensuring safe building access is an ongoing development in Easy Living Platform Lifts’ products. We’ve designed a universal access tool called the EasyStep Low Rise Platform, which is suitable for both commercial and residential buildings. It’s an innovative solution to economic and spatial constraints related to building access requirements. Here’s why this wheelchair lift is the perfect cost-effective solution for universal access.
Easy on space
EasyStep lifts have built-in technology that enables them to transform from stairs into platform lifts and vice versa. This simplifies access and mobility between the upper and lower levels of a building. The EasyStep platform lift doesn’t take up any additional floor space – it’s the same size as a standard set of stairs. The design saves space as it can be transformed for different uses.
Doubles as regular stairs
In addition to saving space, the EasyStep is the epitome of convenience. Instead of having to build a ramp near the staircase, users can convert the stairs into a lift at the push of a button. The automatic transformation back into a stairwell only takes a minute.
Blends into existing design
The EasyStep’s freestanding design gives users flexibility in terms of where the platform is positioned. There’s no need for a pit or separate machine room, so you can place it wherever it fits in best with existing structures. Installation doesn’t require a load bearing wall for support. This keeps the option of moving the EasyStep around for aesthetic or convenience purposes open.
Perfect for lower platform heights
There are three EasyStep models available, with a choice of three or five steps. Whether required indoors or outdoors, the platform is suitable for all low-rise, multi-level structures. No major construction or structural changes are necessary for installing on smaller platforms.
Excellent safety features
The EasyStep is entirely safe and boasts many convenient safety features. It has a backup battery in case of power outages, an emergency stop button, motion sensors and more! The EasyStep is also compliant with all legal requirements.
Increasing accessibility to your venue can increase patronage, benefiting not just people with a disability but also parents with prams and the elderly. Call or visit an Easy Living Platform Lifts showroom near you today!
