Through Floor Home Lifts
These are the Wessex Through-Floor Home Lifts, stairlift alternatives that smoothly operate through the floor, are easy to install, and are in the same price range as some stairlifts. Designed and manufactured by UK-based Wessex Lift Co., the Wessex Through-Floor Home Lifts provide the elderly or sick a more dignified experience entering and exciting and maneuvering throughout their homes. These innovative stairlift alternatives are meant to bridge “the gap between the ease of installation and convenience of a stairlift, whilst retaining much of the functionality of ‘real’ home passenger lifts.” So, they function without the use of a lift shaft and therefore don’t take up much space in your home.
A huge selling point of the Wessex Through-Floor Home Lifts is the minimal installation and construction needed. Typically, it takes just two days to install and while the process may be short, the positive results are long-lasting. Plus, friends and family, or occupational therapists, caregivers, etc. can still have access to the stairs as they won’t be obstructed with a stairlift.
The Wessex Lifts models include the VM Open Through-Floor Home Lift, the VE Enclosed Through-Floor Home Lift, and the Elesse Luxury Lift. The VM Home Lift is a functional, affordable lift with a classic design that is built to accommodate wheelchair users and seated passengers. Over two decades, this highly-functional lift has been perfected for installation in domestic dwellings. It’s the best-selling through-floor home lift and the most sold through-floor lift in the UK – with over 10,000 units installed and many more worldwide.
The VE Enclosed Lift builds upon the already wide range of features the VM offers, with the additional functionality of being able to carry standing passengers, or multiple occupants, between floors. The Elesse Luxury Lift’s design features many of the benefits of a traditional stairlift but possesses much of the functionality of a full-sized ‘passenger’ lift. This high-end version has an array of colors, finishes, and styles tailored to the clients’ homes. Other features of Wessex Lifts include in-car controls, seat options, in-car emergency phone, interior lighting, power door option, wireless landing controls, emergency lowering underside safety edges, and a roof safety sensor.
