The Disabled Vertical Elevator is an accessibility solution for people who move in a wheelchair or with some type of reduced mobility (MONTASCALE).
There are many occasions when stairs represent an insurmountable barrier for people traveling in a wheelchair. The disabled vertical elevator is one of the solutions available so that the stairs do not become an annoying difficulty or an insurmountable obstacle.
There are many accessibility difficulties among which, not only are those that we can see in commercial premises or residential buildings, it is also very common to encounter these barriers when accessing our own home. Simply having a few steps at the entrance or having to save one or more floors can make it very difficult to get in and out of the house as normally as possible.
It is not always feasible to acquire a fully accessible home or completely reform it to eliminate the possible architectural barriers, for these cases, there are accessibility solutions such as the handicapped vertical elevator which allows saving from a few steps to several floors, depending on the model, with few works and at a reasonable cost.
Disabled platforms, for short trips
The disabled platforms are a type of elevators that allow a comfortable and easy way, the movement of people in wheelchairs or with some kind of problem that reduces their mobility.
Unlike the stair climbing platforms that move along the path of the staircase, the disabled platforms move vertically and their operation is very similar to that of the elevators.
These elevators are ideal to save from a few steps at the entrance, up to a maximum of 3 meters in height , (standard height of a floor), one of the main advantages is undoubtedly its versatility, being able to service not only people in wheelchairs, if not also to other possible users such as elderly people or even being useful to move cargo such as shopping, etc.
Unlike stair-climbers, this type of disabled vertical elevator is not installed on the staircase, but in an adjacent space, thus allowing all the free passage of the ladder to be used.
Perhaps one of the most relevant characteristics of this type of elevator is undoubtedly its aesthetics, which allows it to adapt to any type of location, whether inside a building or outdoors, (there are models especially indicated to be installed out in the open).
As a special feature we have that they do not have a fully enclosed cabin, but rather that they are protections at half height, with glass being normal among the materials used for their manufacture. Similarly, we found that one of the doors is directly incorporated into the platform and that it has another additional door on the upper floor of the same height as the protections available on the platform.
This type of disabled vertical elevator does not need a complete enclosure, simply with a wall where to locate the mechanisms and a closure in the route of the area where we leave on the upper floor will be sufficient.
This type of disabled vertical elevator is installed in a few days and normally requires little civil work, there are models that incorporate a small ramp directly to access the platform on the lower floor, thus avoiding the realization of a small pit to access this type of disabled platforms.
Elevators for disabled people prices
Regarding the price of this type of elevator for the disabled we have to take into account a series of factors and characteristics that can make the final price vary, in general we have the elevator route , the dimensions of the platform and the finishes of the elevator will directly influence the final price.
On the other hand, and no less important we have to take into account the adequacy of the gap if necessary, auxiliary works such as the construction of a pit, opening of floor, construction of wall for fixing mechanisms and / or frontal enclosure, are some of the possible reforms that we should foresee when calculating the price of a lift for the disabled.
