The Staircase that Transforms into a Wheelchair Lift

The Flex-Step wheelchair lift is an innovative and unique staircase that converts into a wheelchair lift and back into a stairway.  This beautiful and innovative wheelchair lift is a revolutionary and innovative solution that allows for safe access in tight spaces.  This incredible lift system combines beauty, heavy duty weight capacity, integrated safety features, and an incredible advantage of conservation of space.

Traditional Vertical Platform Wheelchair lifts that are separate from the stairway – require adequate landing space, and a separate platform to allow for additional space to maneuver with sufficient clearances for the wheelchair user.  The Flex-step combined stairway and wheelchair lift eliminates this need for additional construction of a landing, and provides an incredible efficiency of space.  This provides a great solution for garage stairs, that helps to preserve the use of garage space in the home, greater efficiency of space and aesthetics for historical homes or appearance sensitive situations, and a solution for the impossible situation of short interior stairways or steps that require wheelchair access inside of the home. All of these factors make the Flex-Step a great alternative to more traditional stair accessibility solutions.
