Vertical Platform Lifts in Church
Vertical Platform Lifts are like small scale elevators that connect areas of different elevation so that they are accessible to people in wheelchairs or those who are mobility challenged. One of the most common places to find these life saving devices is at church. Many churches are in buildings that have been around for many years. Often times these buildings were not designed to be handicapped accessible. Usually new additions and entrances and exits have been updated and made to be easily accessible by those in wheel chairs, but this is not always the case. Often there are many parts of churches that can not be accessed if you are not able to walk or negotiate the stairs.
People of all shapes, sizes, and age visit churches and this is why so many churches invest in wheelchair lifts. This guarantees that all members of the parish will be able to fully enjoy, participate in, and feel connected with the church. One model of wheelchair lift that is particularly popular with churches is Ameriglide’s Portable Atlas lift. This lift is capable of holding over 500 pounds and can be moved. Since this lift is portable, it is easy to move it when it is not in use or to move it to a different set of steps.
This makes it perfect to allow churchgoers access to the pulpit. These units are also keyed so that you can guarantee that it will not be misused. Vertical platform lifts are found in churches nationwide and provide a great service for many different people. They allow people to get involved with church and stay involved with church throughout their whole life, and will open up new doors to all those who might have thought they were closed.
