Different Kinds of Platform Lifts

There are two primary types of residential platform lifts to consider installing. Depending on your space, you may need either type or both to help you comfortably navigate your home. 

Vertical Platform Lifts

The first option, a vertical platform lift, works like a mini elevator. They feature an open platform, where a wheelchair can fit comfortably, and they move up and down. Also called porch or deck lifts, this option works well when you need to access an elevated area of your home. 

Incline Platform Lifts

The other option is an inclined platform lift, which is compatible for use with stairs. While a vertical platform lift can help you reach different height levels, it’s not capable of bringing you up the stairs. With an inclined platform life, you can stay sitting in your manual wheelchair and the lift will move along the angle of the stairs so you can easily move between floors.

Customer Reviews

Excellent work, professional, and very good with communication. Working with Brian H. with the planning stages was great, no pressure, and very accommodating with our schedules. Installation day for the wet side was done in two days. James O. was our main demo and installer and Joey G. came the second day to help finish. They were courteous to me and the family and also respectful of the house and property. The Costco promotions were a good incentive, but the lifetime warranty on the work is the real deal. We can't wait until phase two!

Had a stairlift installed by Dave F from Atlas Home Improvement. The installer was not only precise during the installation but very knowledgeable about the stairlift. After installation was complete, Mr. F gave a tutorial and then checked to see if we comprehended the facts. Love the lift that spans 14 steep steps and it eliminates me falling. A job well done, that you Dave F and Atlas Home Safety. Atlas is also seeking certification from the VA so that they can help other Veterans.

Had my step in tub installed by James and Juston. Both men did an absolutely fantastic job, very friendly and professional too. They answered all my questions and I can't be happier about my tub that I needed badly since I am elderly and this has been a big relief. I definitely recommend this company and these two gentlemen. Great job, James and Justin

I had a walk in shower installation completed on Tuesday, 9/14/21. My installer Joey was professional, as quiet as possible, did a wonderful job and left my place completely cleaned at the end of the job. I am very happy with the product and would recommend Atlas Home Safety to anyone looking for a walk in shower.

We can't recommend Atlas enough. Everything was done well and in a timely manner. Justin and Doug did a wonderful job on the tub to shower conversion despite a cast iron tub removal and old plumbing.

Atlas Home Safety installed a Hammer Helix stair lift in our home. We are impressed on the very professional job they did.

We requested a consult a Navigator stair lift from Atlas Home Safety and were so impressed by their honesty and clarity that we contracted to have it done.

Platform Lift Installation in Michigan

A platform lift works almost as an elevator, helping wheelchair users or those challenged with mobility reach different heights or floors in a home. Platform lifts feature easy-to-reach controls within the lift, so individuals can use the platform without assistance, making it easier to live independently. 

Because they can easily be added to an existing space, platform lifts are less expensive than built-in elevators, making them a great choice for homeowners who want to create a safer home on a budget. So many clients rave about the benefits of having a platform lift in their home:

  • Increased Independence: A platform lift can provide individuals with disabilities or mobility challenges greater independence within their own homes. It allows them to access different levels of the house without relying on assistance from others.
  • Accessibility: Installing a platform lift can make previously inaccessible areas of the home reachable, such as upper floors or elevated entrances. This enhances overall accessibility and improves the individual’s quality of life.
  • Safety: For individuals with mobility challenges, navigating stairs can pose significant safety risks. A platform lift offers a safer alternative, reducing the likelihood of accidents or falls. Wheelchair injuries can result in significant pain and long-term recovery. Platform lifts are designed with safety in mind, helping to reduce the risk of injury in your home.
  • Comfort and Convenience: Using a platform lift can be more comfortable and convenient compared to struggling with stairs or relying on alternative methods of mobility, such as wheelchairs or walkers. For those who need a wheelchair or walker, this option provides a new lease on life.
  • Maintaining Social Connections: Easy access to different parts of the home can facilitate social interactions with family and friends, as well as participation in activities and gatherings within the household.
  • Aging in Place: Many individuals prefer to age in place, remaining in their own homes for as long as possible. Installing a platform lift can support this goal by ensuring continued accessibility and mobility as physical abilities change over time.
  • Preserving Dignity: Having the ability to move freely throughout one’s home without constant assistance can help preserve the individual’s sense of dignity and autonomy.

What to Consider When Installing a Platform Lift

When planning your platform lift installation, there are a few important things to consider before getting started: 

  • Size: Make sure you choose a lift that can accommodate the size of your wheelchair without taking up too much space in your home. 
  • Design: Your lift should also be easy to access with a seamless design that will accommodate your chair. Beyond that, you can choose a platform lift that matches the design of your interior for a cohesive look.
  • Budget: Set a budget you can spend and look for a lift that fits within that. At Atlas Home Safety, we offer lifts to fit a range of budgets and can talk to you about funding options.

FAQs About Platform Lifts

Will adding a platform lift impact my home value?

It can! Wheelchair-friendly homes are generally hard to come by, so creating a more accessible home can improve its value when you decide to sell. 

Are platform lifts difficult to use?

Not at all. The lifts we install are designed with easy use in mind and our installers will ensure that you understand how to operate your new platform lift before we leave your home.
