Step Lifts

When wheelchair access is obstructed by steps, a ramp is not always a feasible solution. If you are looking for a practical and cost efficient option, a wheelchair step lift can provide you with exactly what you need. Safe, reliable and easy to use, step lifts travel up to 500 mm and 1 metre. They can be supplied with bridging steps to ensure easy access for both disabled and pedestrian users. An upper level gate protects the landing when bridging steps are not provided.

What is a Step Lift?

Step Lifts are designed for short-travel and are therefore quite compact lifts used to provide wheelchair access over a few steps to a front entrance. A step lift, complete with moving steps if required, provides a secure gangway between the lift and your door.

Step Lifts we recommend

Wessex LR (Low Rise) Steplift

The Wessex LR Series is the ultimate in low rise lifting solutions. Building on an impressive pedigree spanning three decades of design innovation the LR Series encapsulates the qualities embedded in every Wessex Lift.

Under the surface

  • The Wessex LR range embodies over three decades of design innovation.
  • A twin hydraulic cylinder configuration together with a full width scissor arrangement and a 5mm aluminium platform all combine to give strength and stability.

Design Features

  • On the outside, a Bleu Sable architectural powder coat finish provides excellent exterior durability and colour retention.
  • Good design is not all about appearance; it is also about function, and with the Wessex LR functionality has never looked so good.

Wessex SP Lift – the small Step/Porch Lift

A giant benefit of this small lift is how simple it is. With a design inspired by scissor lifts, it only travels a short distance, but does so reliably and effectively.

Far easier to use than a ramp, and a better option when space is limited, the SP can be installed indoors or outdoors, making it perfectly suited to front door steps.

The Wessex SP500 Steplift has been developed as a compact option for those applications where space is at a premium. It provides wheelchair users easy access where difficulties exist due to a change in level or the presence of one or two steps. The lift is compact whilst offering a large platform area and shallow ramp for easy access.
