Discover Our Incredible External Wheelchair Platform Lifts

We have many options for all sorts of amazing home lifts in our range of products, but what will be most useful for wheelchairs in outdoor spaces is a step lift or a stair lift, which both make use of platforms. A stair lift goes along the side of the stairs, usually by using a rail, whereas a step lift uses a separate vertical platform, typically adjacent to the staircase. 

The wheelchair platform lifts models that will be most useful for outdoor use include the following:

Gartec 3000 Step Lift

This is a fantastic option for a vertical platform lift, which is ideal for a garden or another outdoor area in the home and will give you the heavy-duty functionality of a step lift in public buildings like airports and train stations. The Gartec 3000 Step Lift has a total footprint of 1500 x 1639mm.

Prices start at £6,000. Some useful features of the Gartec 3000 Step Lift include the following:

  • Travel distance of up to 3 metres, perfect for low to medium-sized staircases
  • Extremely low maintenance design, which uses an efficient belt drive system
  • Fast installation, which can be completed in as little as 1 day
  • No enclosure or support tower for a sleek, slim footprint
  • Wide range of finishes available, so you can blend the step lift into your surroundings

As a vertical platform lift there are limitations to this design, such as if you have a curved outdoor staircase or a winding rockery. However, for many outdoor areas, it is the ideal solution. A Gartec 3000 Step Lift has a rated load of 400 kilograms so it is perfect for all kinds of wheelchairs.

Gartec Platform Stair Lift

If you have stairs that are a little uneven, such as stone steps, then a platform stair lift may provide a better, slightly more versatile solution. The Gartec Platform Stair Lift is a good option for a simple but smooth-running mechanism that you can depend on indoors and outdoors.

Available at under £5,000, depending on the staircase length, features include the following:

  • Choice of three different platform sizes
  • Ultra low-maintenance design, 
  • 225-kilogram weight capacity
  • Fully-motorised unfolding mechanism, for easy access while using a wheelchair

A wonderful thing about the Gartec Platform Stair Lift is that it has a very slim profile when in its folded position, so you are much less likely to see it from a distance and it is very discreet. So, if you want access to your outdoor space but would prefer a clean look, this is the best external lift.
