Port St Lucie, FL (PRWEB) November 29, 2012
Due to the recent recession, the raging popularity of internet shopping, along with the ever-expanding “Home Depot demographic,” a new demand for DIY (Do-It-Yourself) wheelchair lifts has emerged. This vastly growing demographic includes handy individuals who enjoy working on projects around the home. For them, it is not necessary to spend hundreds of dollars hiring a professional to install a platform lift in their home. The Lift Store has announced that inclined platform lifts designed for self-installation are now available for residential applications. This type of mobility lift allows individuals to ascend or descend their staircase while on a scooter or wheelchair. This provides a huge advantage over a stairlift, which requires a person to get out of their wheelchair or scooter in order to navigate their stairway. For many people this is simply not possible due to various handicaps, health problems, or other physical ailments they may suffer from.
Only recently has this type of mobility lift been made widely available for a residential application. Most wheelchair lifts are extremely costly and must be professionally installed. But all that is in the past now that The Lift Store offers a highly affordable inclined platform lift from a leading manufacturer of various types of handicap lifts. “Purchasing one of these highly affordable DIY wheelchair lifts can save the customer up to $1000.00 or more – a huge advantage during these difficult economic times,” reported Dennis Corrado, Director of The Lift Store. They are also easy to install, requiring only a couple hours of time and a few basic tools.
The Lift Store has chosen to feature the Sierra Inclined Wheelchair Platform Lift. This model is made in America, can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications, and can be mounted directly to the stairs. Additionally, customers will enjoy standard features such as a 500 lb weight capacity, automatic folding ramps on both sides of the platform, and a DC motor that will operate even during a power outage. The Sierra Inclined Platform Lift is manufactured according to ASME A18.1, Sec 6 Safety Standards and includes such safety features as an overspeed governor, ramp obstruction sensors, and platform safety pan obstruction sensors. Also included is a 2-Year Warranty and free tech support from the manufacturer.
The Lift Store USA is a division of New Line Products, LLC. Its founder, Dennis Corrado, has over 10 years experience in the mobility lift industry, including installation, service, and troubleshooting.
