About Enclosed Vertical Platform Lifts

An enclosed wheelchair platform lift can easily be installed in your home. We install the Savaria™ line of wheelchair platform lifts for their high quality and reliability. These Savaria™ products are known for their design flexibility and the many additional features.

Why is it called a Closet Elevator?

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.

What if you don't have stacked closets?

Even if your home does not have the closet space in the same space on each floor of your home, there are several solutions to overcome this obstacle. Take a look at the photo of a Savaria™ Telecab below. This enclosed wheelchair platform lift is installed in a two floor home. When the lift is on the main floor, it becomes virtually invisible as, the roof of the lift becomes flush with the floor above.

How do I know if it is right for my home?

There are many factors that will determine whether this product is right for you and that is why it is important that Access Solutions makes a home visit to determine your particular needs. Retrofitting your home to accept a closet elevator takes careful consideration for costs, existing home structure and building codes in your area. We have the experience to evaluate your specific requirements and to recommend the best product for you.
