Access for ALL people
Here at Ability Lifts, we believe that the phrase ï¿½disabledï¿½ is discriminatory and should be banned. There are millions of ï¿½less abledï¿½ people including mothers with prams and elderly people with shopping bags, and older people who cannot climb the stairs.
We offer solutions to these difficulties - our philosophy is ï¿½Access for all peopleï¿½. So specify Ability Lifts - all of the units being supplied in compliance with the Machinery Directive MD 98/37/EC and we understand the problems surrounding less abled people.
