How To Choose The Right Access Solution

The key to choosing the right access solution is identifying who will be using it, how it will be used, and where it will be installed.

Who Will Be Using It?

It’s important to determine who will be using the lift in order to choose the right type and size of lift for your needs. For example, if you’re installing a lift that will be used by people with crutches or a walker, you can choose a lift with a smaller platform. Whereas, a lift intended to transport someone in a wheelchair as well as their carer will require a much larger platform.

How Will It Be Used?

There are a range of different access solutions designed for different applications. So, to choose the right access solution for your needs, you will first need to determine how it will be used. For example, if you’re just looking for a way to transport heavy objects between levels, you may only need a dumbwaiter rather than a full passenger lift.

Conversely, if you’re looking to make all areas of your home wheelchair accessible, including upper levels, an enclosed shaft platform lift would be more suitable.

Where Will It Be Installed?

Another key consideration when choosing which access solution is best for your home is where it will be installed. If your home has limited space available, it could limit the size of the lift that you can install.

Alternatively, if you’re working with limited space, you may want to consider installing a lift externally rather than encroaching on your indoor space.
