In & Out Of The House
- 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.
- VPL’s are an excellent solution when a ramp doesn’t meet safety standards
- Lifting a passenger in their wheelchair from as little as 20 inches up to 14 feet – VPL’s can be installed in the garage or adjacent to a porch to lift the wheelchair user to the house
- Outdoor chairlifts are a great solution for getting up the stairs when you can transfer independently
- Fully covered and built with marine components – outdoor chairlifts are ready to deal with Chicago’s weather and are quick and easy to install
- Our years of experience will help you design the right ramp for your needs – a site built wooden or concrete ramp or a portable aluminum ramp that can be quickly installed.
- A metal modular wheelchair ramp is a simple solution for both short and long term necessity
- Create accessible entry and exit points to your existing home
- Automatic door openers, operated with remote controls or push buttons, are a “no-hands” way to open or close a door
- Teamed with remote controlled deadbolts – they provide security and ease of access
