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)
