In & Out Of The House Accessibility/Mobility Solutions

  • EHLS has a complete line of products to assist you with getting in & out of the house.
  • From ramps to lifts to automatic door openers, we can work with you to determine the right solution for you and your home.
  • Lifts are an important accessibility option when trying to get up to and into your house – especially in Chicago’s many neighborhoods with steps at the front and back doors.
  • A simple rule is that if the rise is more than 30′ you should consider a lift instead of a ramp – and lifts are especially useful in the city where space is often limited.
  • Look at the short summaries below and link to the section that best meets your needs.

The stair lift was installed yesterday and I just wanted to thank you, Sarah, and David (the installer) for a job well done! Ruth had a doctor’s appointment today which was our first ‘official’ use of the lift. What a difference! It has made the entire trip easier on all of us, especially on the return home. After a day out, those last seven stairs had to seem like the Himalayas to Ruth. Now it’s just a push of a button.

Thanks again!

Just had to let you know how pleased we all are with the finished product in the girls’ bedrooms. I just left Tony a voicemail and said you guys are probably used to hearing this, but the quality of your work is awesome and like none I’ve ever seen. Of course, you had the ideas to guide them and I thank you so much for your foresight. I can’t tell you what a difference it has made in our lives already and they just finished it Thursday! It looks like our other projects; like the house was built like that. You are welcome to come over anytime to check it out! Just wanted you to know how pleased we are to have that extra space!

Outstanding work.”
