Platform Lifts up to 1.5m of rise

Vestner's series of lifts are fully compliant with Australian & NZ Standards and disability codes & recommendations.    Lifts have been designed and developed with input from Occupational Therapists for over 15 years.

These lifts are ideal for those situations where space is an issue; where the required height rise would result in significant ramping or where clients can’t use ramps.  They are also an excellent option within the home for internal access challenges.

Once any necessary site preparation work has been completed, lift installation is quick and easy using a simple bolt down system connected to the standard household electricity supply.

Australia's Home Modification Services or Veterans Affairs may be able to assist with funding lifts for people with disabilities. 

What do I need to consider?

In assessing your client’s needs the following factors will assist you to determine the suitability of a Vestner series platform lift along with the most appropriate model and any accessories required:

  • Height rise between the levels
  • Available space for the lift installation and ease of access onto it
  • Overall lifting capacity required taking into account
    • the person who will use the lift
    • the weight of any equipment e.g. wheelchair – manual or powered
    • whether a carer will also be on the lift
  • Overall platform user space required taking into account
    • the person who will use the lift
    • the size of any equipment e.g. wheelchair
    • whether a carer will also be on the lift
  • Will the lift be used by multiple users/carer - requiring call buttons
  • The person’s functional and cognitive ability to use the lift
  • Remote controls required
  • Clients special needs e.g. larger lift controls
  • Orientation of the lift - 'straight through' or 'adjacent' (900) exit
  • Positioning of the lift control tower – left or right (as viewed from the lower landing)
  • Protection of the upper landing entrance for lifts - barrier arm or gate required
  • Manual or fully automatic car and/or landing gate
  • Future proofing - will the lift meet the needs of the client in the future

Servicing and repairs

Should repairs to the lift be required, these should be undertaken by trained technicians.

Lift removal
