Through floor lifts are a great solution in medium to large sized residential properties and can offer a direct access point to a bedroom for a user. This is particularly useful for those with more serious walking restrictions.
Many elderly or disabled people can end up relying on the kindness and support of friends, family or especially hired professionals to help them with their everyday tasks; however, these people are not always available 24/7, and many mobility impaired citizens are therefore left without a mobility solution for a large portion of their days.
Domestic lifts like these solve that conundrum. Differing from the common type found in commercial buildings, these through floor lifts are meant for use inside the home, and designed to help make everyday life easier..
As the name indicates, these lifts connect two separate floors via a shaft drilled through the ground-level ceiling and top-level floor. In this manner, mobility-impaired home-owners can bypass and avoid stairs altogether, benefiting from a comfortable, convenient and secure way to go from the ground level to the floor above.
Sheridan Lifts’ model of through floor lift is the most ecologically-friendly available on the market. It operates on an electric motor and pulleys, more efficient than a traditional hydraulic pump system, and is equipped with a series of extra features especially added to ensure the ride is as smooth as possible for the passenger. Overall, these devices are as close as a home-owner will get to having a full-sized lift inside their home, and their level of comfort and functionality leaves little to be desired compared to their larger counterparts!
