This group home was having difficulty accessing parts of the home due to existing fire suppression system and lighting. Island Lift Systems was able to install turntables and curved track to access difficult to reach areas in the washroom as well as incorporating a dedicating charging area that wouldn’t interfere with clients’ safety.
Upon request from a conference planner, Island Lift Systems was able to provide a short term rental of a modular ramp to allow independent access for attendees that could only access the stage area by power wheelchair.
This complex installation of a Guldmann lift system in a healthcare facility incorporating curved track, combi locks and a large room-covering system. After consulting with engineers and architects, Island Lift Systems was able to complete this installation in a timely fashion and to high standards mandated by the facility.
This custom-coloured single track curved system specified by the client blends in with the décor of the home while providing features such as 180 degree park at the top of the stairs. This single track option is a visually-attractive option available at similar costs to the twin rail option.
The client was having a difficult time walking up two flights of stairs and a landing. Normally, the chair stops at the top of the stairs, but we were able to add a 180 degree bend at the top of the stairs to make it easier for the client to access the chair and minimizing the risk of falling.
This is a new Group Home that needed a continuous ceiling track that would go from room to room in one seemless smooth movement. Guldmann is the only ceiling track company that makes something like this. The joiner peices outside of each room are called Switchtracks. The "Switches" allow the tracking to change direction just like a railway track does. A simple flick of the switch on the wall and you can easily move a loved one or group home resident from thier rooms to any other room that the tracking goes to with out having to move them from one lift to another. This not only makes things easier on your residents, but it is also safer for the care staff.
This is a Savaria Telecab 17ft Through Floor Lift with a power opertator. The cab of the lift is fully enclosed for your safety and the lift actually passes through a hole in the floor to et your from one level of your home to another. When going up to the second floor the roof of the lift carries the upper floor section with it and it rises, when it comes back down the floor lowers with it and then seals the hole closed on a steel frame so that it is secure enough to be walked on while in that position.
The Savaria V1504 is a full enclosed external lift with power operated doors. This client needed to be able to get from thier parking area on the main floor of thier home up to the second floor. We cut a doorway into the wall of the second floor and installed the lift so that he can get from the car into his home safely and it keeps him out of the elements as well.

Railings are very diverse and can be made to fit in any shape ensuring the proper safety in your home or the home of a loved one.
Ramps can help give you access to your home so you don't need to move. The length of the ramp is determined by how high of a rise it needs to reach. For every inch of rise you need one foot of ramp to meet code. And as you can see....we can make that work even in smaller spaces!

Standard aluminum ramps can come in many different lengths but they are all a standard width, making it difficult to fit them into tighter spaces. Our technicians can build custom wooden ramps to fit into your space giving you the freedom to come and go as you please with safety and security.
