Safe Home Lifts All Year Round

by | Feb 7, 2023 | Lifts

Are you struggling to navigate porch stairs due to a mobility limitation? Installing a home mobility device can make it easier for you to enter and exit your house independently. Unfortunately, with winter creeping in, many people find it difficult to maintain their mobility devices. Porch ramps, for example, are challenging to maintain during extreme weather conditions and often make it more difficult for homeowners with limited mobility to enter and exit their homes safely.

At RAM Elevators + Lifts, we aim to provide homeowners with safe mobility solutions that help them access their homes independently all year round. Rain or snow, RAM’s home lifts offer passengers safe entry and exit to their homes. Read more about our weather-resistant home lifts below!

Safe Access All Year Round

Weather is constantly changing across North America. One day might look beautiful and sunny only to suddenly turn into gloomy clouds and non-stop rain. When you’re a property owner in North America, you are definitely accustomed to weather-proofing everything in your home. Unfortunately, some outdoor mobility solutions can be unsafe to use during extreme weather and can even cause passengers to require assistance when accessing their homes. To avoid creating more challenges, RAM has engineered the Trus-T-Lift to offer customers safe access to their homes all year round.

RAM Elevators + Lifts is proud to offer dependable home lifts that withstand extreme weather conditions. The Trus-T-Lift is engineered with a non-slip metal platform and a high-sided enclosure to ensure the safety of passengers in any weather conditions. For example, if you’re in a wheelchair, a scooter or using a cane, you no longer have to worry about exiting or entering the home lift during snow or rain. The non-slip metal platform and high-sided enclosure ensure the safety of the passenger and eliminate the possibility of any accidents due to extreme weather conditions.

Powerful and Reliable Performance

Our Trus-T-Lift is operated using our proprietary all-electric drive system that offers passengers reliable and robust performance in all weather conditions. The drive system is mounted on top of the car to ensure that during any weather hazard, the drive system is safe and in an enclosed space. For instance, homeowners can easily send the home lift to the upper floor during a flood without worrying about any water damage as the drive system is mounted on top and far away from any flooding. No matter the weather conditions, you can rely on the Trus-T-Lift to provide you with a reliable, smooth and powerful operation.

Equipped For Emergencies

At RAM Elevators + Lifts, we understand that a home lift is designed to offer passengers with limited mobility complete independence in all circumstances, especially during emergency situations. We have incorporated a standard emergency manual crank and battery backup for car lighting and controls in our Trus-T-Lift that allows passengers to lower the elevator manually during an electrical outage. We also offer two optional emergency battery backups that can run the motor in the down direction during a power outage or a full battery 40-cycle backup that allows passengers to use the home lift with a full load for 40 cycles. If you’re looking for more safety measures, we are more than happy to offer customized safety features to suit your needs.
