What are customers saying?

Here is just a sample of our customer testimonials from a few performing arts centers who know what you can expect from the Ascension experience:

“The Brockville Arts Centre was very pleased with the excellent service and technical support we received from Ascension. Their technical department worked with our designers to come up with a solution that allows wheelchair patrons to access both our stage and orchestra pit. Our sales consultant was extremely knowledgeable, easy to work with and professional at all times. They delivered a 1st class product and exceptional customer service. We highly recommend them.” Watch the Brockville Arts Centre’s facility video on YouTube: “Accessibility at the Brockville Arts Centre”

“I couldn’t ask for a better piece of equipment – everything is fine with the wheelchair lift and it is performing excellently in our Vert Auditorium. The wheelchair lift is everything that I expected, and the quality is excellent. We have a symphony orchestra that plays on our stage regularly. Several of their entertainers are handicapped. They greatly appreciate the unit and they can use it as they need with very little effort. We have currently had several ADA inspections of the theater facility and everybody always admires the fact that we have that fantastic ADA stage lift.”

“We recently hosted a wheelchair-bound performer who gave us a “shout out” from the stage for being the only venue she’s played in that has a wheelchair lift! Thank you for that.”

“We’ve been using an Ascension lift for several years now in Zellerbach Auditorium at the University of California, Berkeley, to provide accessibility from the orchestra level to the stage. We selected this particular lift because of its compact size, enabling access without obstructing aisles or losing seating. We use it primarily for graduation ceremonies in the hall, allowing graduates in wheelchairs to process and receive their diplomas along with the rest of their classmates. The lift is silent, unobtrusive, easy to operate, and always reliable. We’ve never had a problem or needed service, and I would recommend it without hesitation.”
