Residential Porchlifts


Residential PorchliftsA porchlift provides convenient multi-level wheelchair access, either indoors or outdoors. Very space-efficient, they take up far less area than a ramp, and can be installed in most applications.

In private residences, porchlifts allow homeowners access the upper floor from the ground floor or yard.

In private residences, Western Elevator wheelchair lifts meet or exceed The Canadian Standard, CAN/CSA-B613-M87 Elevating Devices for the Disabled in Private Residences.
