Inclined Platform Lift

Inclined Platform Lifts (IPL) allows for barrier free, up and down transportation, for a person in wheelchair on a flight of straight stairs. A rail system is mounted alongside the stairs to guide the movement of the inclined moving platform. These lifts are manufactured as per CSA-B355. This lift is well suited to environments where an elevator or vertical lift cannot be easily accommodated, due to limited space and hence this accessibility lift travels on the top of the flight of stairs.
