Since RAM’s inception over 30 years ago, the Trus-T-Lift has been an essential accessibility solution for North Americans. RAM Elevators + Lifts is dedicated to creating affordable mobility solutions accessible to everyone because every person deserves mobility independence.

Keep reading to learn why RAM’s vertical platform lifts (VPL) are leading the elevation industry across North America.

Affordable Mobility Solutions

The Trus-T-Lift is engineered to make mobility accessible and affordable for our customers without sacrificing quality. RAM’s residential lifts are simple, functional, and easily maintained through regular yearly maintenance.

Engineered for both outdoor and indoor environments, the Trus-T-Lift is an intuitive wheelchair lift for vertical rises up to 14ft. Riders with limited dexterity and mobility can confidently use the vertical platform lift independently because of the Oversized Soft Touch controls.

RAM’s patented Zero-Load Start Design protects the Trus-T-Lift motor from burning out in extreme cold or hot situations. The motor runs for 4-5 seconds before picking up the load, preventing the engine from flooding and ensuring a smooth and reliable ride each time.

Customize Your Lift, Your Way

The days of unattractive accessibility features like home lifts and elevators are long gone. Here at RAM Elevators + Lifts, we firmly believe that accessibility need not come at the cost of aesthetics. Whether indoor or outdoor, the RAM Trus-T-Lift is customizable to compliment your home’s design perfectly. You have complete control over the colours, trim, doors/gate, handrails and more!

Winter + Weatherproof Design

Designed to stand up against the worst Canadian weather has to offer, RAM’s vertical platform lift is a reliable home lift in rain, snow, or stormy weather. User safety is a top priority for RAM, and the Trus-T-Lift employs multiple safety features, like the non-slip metal platform and high-sided safety enclosures, to ensure safety for our users year-round.

The Trus-T-Lift’s electrical components are protected from the elements in a sealed box with rubber gaskets for air-tight protection. The outdoor lift sits at least three feet off the ground, protecting the platform from flood damage. RAM Elevators + Lifts’ impressive suite of products is used all across North America due to RAM’s creative weatherproofing designs that ensure the lift will perform reliably regardless of weather or temperature.
