Home Safe Homes is proud to partner with EZ-Access, and to be able to offer and install their PASSPORT® Vertical Platform Lift. Our trained professionals can install these lifts to fit your needs and do so efficiently.

The PASSPORT® Vertical Platform Lift (VPL) takes access safety to the next level, delivering a smooth, quiet ride to your next destination. This VPL is most commonly used by individuals who have limited mobility and is the perfect solution for any difficult pathway, porch, or platform (EZ-ACCESS). There are multiple platform configurations and lift heights which make it possible to customize this lift to meet your unique needs.

The sturdy aluminum construction of the PASSPORT® makes it the lightest residential platform lift on the market. This VPL weighs in at fewer than 400 pounds, which is an estimated 300 pounds lighter than similar steel units. The PASSPORT® features Plug-N-Play Wiring Technology that is waterproof and will not corrode, making it both user-friendly, and the preferred lift of technicians and installers (EZ-ACCESS).

There are a number of safety features for the PASSPORT® that make it more accessible and secure. The Undercarriage Platform Safety Pan has an obstruction detector that requires less than 15 pounds of pressure to stop the lift (EZ-ACCESS). When the lift is stopped by an obstruction it will remain operational in the upward direction, but the obstruction or object must be removed to continue traveling downward. The PASSPORT® is made universally accessible using a self-adjusting 24-inch entry ramp that can be built on either end of the platform. When the lift rises, the ramp prevents any accidental travel off the platform by folding upward to provide an added safety measure (EZ-ACCESS).

It features large, mushroom head control switches (including an emergency stop) that require very little pressure and are easy to use, regardless of motor skills. High-visibility LED indicator lights have been arranged on the control box allow for easy troubleshooting, which leads to fewer service calls. The PASSPORT® is ETL certified*, independently tested and approved for product safety (EZ-ACCESS). Each PASSPORT® comes with a 2-year warranty and is made in the USA.

 

 

 

*ETL Certified:

The PASSPORT has been tested and approved by a nationally accredited testing laboratory, assuring continued compliance with the applicable regulatory and safety standards throughout North America. The ETL Certification Mark is recognized and accepted proof of third-party inspection, testing, and certification. (EZ-ACCESS)

Home Safe Homes Can Improve the Safety of the Entrances of your Home with Wheelchair Ramps and Railing!

Increasing client mobility and safety at entrances of the home often includes installation of railing and wheelchair accessible ramps. Home Safe Homes specializes in designing and building permanent wooden ramps that are ADA compatible or installing temporary modular aluminum ramps. Our aluminum wheelchair ramps are also available for rent.

Home Safe Homes works with you to design and build ramps that fit your needs and that will not detract from the beauty of your home. Our custom built permanent wooden ramps are built to last and to help keep you and your loved ones safe. All of our wooden ramps are constructed utilizing pressure treated lumber. We always use screws, never any nails. This is important because nails can cause splits in the wood and pop up over time. Our use of screws makes our ramps sturdy and durable. We always try to adhere to ADA guidelines and do our best to construct the safest ramps possible for our clients.

The temporary modular aluminum ramps and rentable aluminum wheelchair ramps that we offer are from EZ-ACCESS. The portable ramps that we rent and sell are made of lightweight materials that are engineered to provide remarkable strength for either a short- or long-term need. Despite being lightweight, they are able to hold up to 660 pounds. Portable ramps set up quickly and can be folded in half lengthwise and carried like a suitcase when they are not in use. Their handles are non-breakable, flexible and have a comfortable grip, which makes carrying these ramps simple and comfortable. The ramps are textured to create a non-slip surface that provides traction regardless of the weather. Our portable ramps have self-adjusting transition plates on the bottom, which independently adjust to the ground surface making the transition from ramp to the ground flat on most surfaces. If you are looking for a ramp that is durable and portable, we have you covered. (EZ-ACCESS)

We also install EZ-ACCESS’s PATHWAY 3G, Semi-Permanent Aluminum Ramps. These ramps are made of an environmentally friendly, high-strength aluminum that will not deteriorate, rust or rot in the outdoor elements. This makes them practically maintenance free. Their slip-resistant surfaces provide users with traction in any type of weather. There are three surface options and four different handrail styles. The PATHWAY 3G allows for innumerable platform and modular ramp configurations, which create seamless and safe access for both unique and standard entryways. Because it does not alter or add to the structure of your house, it does not affect your home’s property value. What’s more is that installation causes minimal disruption to you and your family because a standard 24-foot, PATHWAY 3G system takes less than an hour to install. All EZ-ACCESS ramps come with a lifetime warranty and are produced in the USA.

Home Safe Homes is also able to install a variety of handrails that are tailored to the location they are needed. We install Gilpin brand Aluminum Railing that is as sturdy as it is aesthetically pleasing. The railing is made of high-grade aluminum alloy and is durable, water resistant, and is virtually maintenance-free due to its powder coating. There are four styles available in either black or white. These options allow you to select the one that best fits the aesthetic that you desire for your home. Depending on which railing type you choose, you also have the option of having either 36″ or 42″ railing height. Most styles of Gilpin railing will slant to allow for use on stairs. All Gilpin railing has a 4″ spacing between each spindle. Our partnership with Gilpin allows us to offer customizable railings that suit your needs and look beautiful. (Gilpin Inc., 2008)

Whether you and your loved ones decide that a permanent, temporary, or portable ramp is the best option for improving the safety of the entrance of your home, Home Safe Homes is able to install the ramp that you need. If a single handrail or a pair is what you or your loved one require, we install a variety of railing that is durable and decorative. At home safe homes it is our goal to improve home accessibility and safety for every generation. Contact us today for a consultation.
