A wheelchair lift is the perfect solution to provide accessibility to the upper levels of a building for individuals with limited mobility. Wheelchair lifts take up less space than elevators and cost much less. Nationwide Lifts offers several wheelchair lift models.
The Apex IPL inclined platform lift can be installed on most straight staircases. It is suitable for use both indoors and outdoors and can be used in both homes and public buildings. The Standard version requires a machine room, while the Plus model has a tower that is located at the top of the staircase. Dual access ramps lower when the unit is unfolded, and it folds up when not in use to allow stair access for other people.
The Apex 500 wheelchair lift uses a screw-drive system. The user presses a button to indicate starts and stops in a vertical motion. It is designed for residential use and can be modified for public settings as well. A pit is not required.
The Apex 750 is a vertical platform that is suitable for both residential and commercial buildings. It uses hydraulic operation and operates on 115VAC. It can travel up to 12 feet with two stops. If more than six feet of vertical travel is required, the Apex 750 must be installed in an elevator shaft.
The Apex 750+ has the same features as the 750 wheelchair lift, but it includes its own elevator shaft. It can be used both indoors and outdoors. The elevator shaft is built with aluminum framing, clear acrylic panels, and landing doors. The upper landing can be fully enclosed with a clear acrylic dome, or it can be open at the top with rails and a gate.
Apex wheelchair lifts include several standard safety features, as well as optional features, such as landing gates and doors, telephones, and a variety of exit configurations.
