How To Make Your Home Accessible During Winter

by | Jan 3, 2023 | Lifts

With winter upon us, many people are starting to winterize their homes and vehicles to make sure that they’re safe and warm all winter long. However, those of us with limited mobility issues can sometimes find it more challenging to continue our regular daily routine during the harsh winter months.

Taking the stairs or using a ramp can be more dangerous during winter as snow, rain, and sometimes black ice can form on the surface. When winterizing your home, you should also consider making it more accessible during winter months for people with limited dexterity by installing an outdoor home lift. Read on to learn more about home lifts and how they are an excellent way to make accessibility easy during winter.

Easy Accessibility

When thinking about accessibility, homeowners often overlook how difficult it can be to use a wheelchair, scooter or cane during winter. Your home might have all the necessary accessibility features to move around freely, but does it provide easy access to your home? An outdoor home lift will make it easier for people with limited dexterity to access your home without worrying about slipping on ice or snow. With an enclosed outdoor home lift, you can seamlessly access your home regardless of the weather conditions.

Safe Accessibility

An outdoor home lift provides easy accessibility to passengers and also ensures safe access during winter. North American winter can be very harsh, especially in areas where there is constant snow, rain and strong winds. Leaving your home on any accessibility feature is dangerous during extreme weather, except with RAM Elevators + Lifts Trus-T-Lift.

Our outdoor home lift is designed for all-weather use and incorporates three tiers of emergency power in case of an emergency. Each Trus-T-Lift is equipped with an emergency manual crank in case of a power outage due to bad weather, allowing passengers to ride the lift under any conditions safely. We can also install a battery backup lowering feature that will run the motor in the downward direction during a power outage or provide you with a full battery 40-cycle backup that can run the motor with a full load for 40 cycles during a power emergency.

Affordable Accessibility

At RAM Elevators + Lifts, we understand the importance of having an accessible home and the challenges of finding an affordable solution. Our team of expert engineers has designed the Trus-T-Lift to offer customers the accessibility they need at an affordable price.
