Accessing multilevel homes can be made easier with a enclosed wheelchair platform lift, sometimes known as a “Closet Elevator”. It became known as a closet elevator for it’s similar appearance to the entrance of a closet . The standard platform for this elevator is 36 in. wide by 54 in. deep. Although existing closet openings are approximately 24 in, with construction changes these platform lifts can be installed and to the normal eye would appear to look like a closet.
Although the ideal time to consider a Closet Elevator is when planning the construction of a new home, most homes can be retrofitted with a closet elevator after careful planning and evaluation of the existing structure and layout of your home.
