Symmetry Vertical Platform Lifts

Residential lifts eliminate the barrier that stairs can cause for people with limited mobility.

Unenclosed vertical platform lifts require little or no site modifications and can be used in a residential or commercial setting.

The Enclosed Lift is A18.1 code-compliant and designed for ease of installation. Can be used as a residential lift or in a commercial application.

A shaftway vertical lift is designed for enclosed shaftway applications in public and private facilities at travel heights up to 168″.

The Symmetry Enclosed Lift Plexi-glass vertical platform lift is suitable for indoor and outdoor use in Acme Screw and Hydraulic drive systems.

The Hybrid vertical platform lift looks and feels like an elevator, but operates like a lift. It’s available in many different sizes and configurations.

Wheelchair Lifts

Symmetry’s wheelchair lifts are ideal for people who want full access to all levels of their home without the need for extensive renovations. Manufactured by Bella Elevator, our wheelchair stair lifts stand out from the competition with their simple operational controls, reliable functions, and extensive custom design options.

What’s the Difference between a Wheelchair Lift and a Home Elevator?

A wheelchair lift for home use typically features an open car with panels on either side of the lift platform, although some platforms may be enclosed by surrounding walls or shafts. This makes the installation of wheelchair lifts less intrusive than residential elevator installation, which often require space for a shaft, elevator pit, and/or machine room.

How Much is a Wheelchair Lift?

Wheelchair lift prices vary depending on the lift type, accessories, and custom design choices. Because vertical lifts require fewer on-site modifications during installation, they cost less than home elevators. Home elevator prices range from $18,000 to $100,000, while prices for wheelchair lifts start at $4,000 and increase depending on model specifications and customized options.
