Towerless Design

Rather than the large tower used to hold lifting mechanisms common to wheelchair lifts, Ascension lifts feature a towerless design, made possible from housing the lifting mechanisms in the walls of the lifts. This enables each Ascension lift to maintain a low profile aesthetic and small footprint.

Flush Entrance and Exit

Each Ascension wheelchair lift features a flush, level entrance and exit without the need for ramps, enabling a rider to use the lift with ease. Further, ramps require greater floor space and thus a larger area for a lift installation but Ascension lifts are designed without the need for these, making them more compact and easier to install.
