In the accessibility business, every situation is unique. That’s why wheelchair lift customization is so important. At Ascension, we recognize our clients’ diverse needs and provide a variety of lift customization options to meet each challenge.

Below, we explore the lifts and the many options that make Ascension the leader in accessibility solutions:

All New Ascension Platform Lifts Come With:

FULL ADA COMPLIANCE All Ascension wheelchair lifts are fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations.
20-YEAR WARRANTY All new Ascension lifts feature a standard drive train warranty of 20 years (5 years all other parts), which conveys our commitment to every owner’s continuing satisfaction. This warranty is the longest guarantee in the industry, outpacing all others by at least 15 years. In addition, Ascension offers an extended warranty. Typically, the extended warranty increases labor coverage from 1 year to 5 years.
CUSTOM COLOR Custom powder coat color selected by client; color-matching services are available.
NOTE: Some parts remain black or metallic, such as the safety skirt (on Virtuoso only), door handles, miscellaneous hardware, etc.

The Ascension Clarity 16E:

The Clarity 16E is Ascension’s newest innovation and Ascension’s first fully-enclosed platform lift. The Clarity 16E comes with a full range of standard features for superior safety, convenience, and aesthetics, including:

  • Ground-level entry without an installation pit or entry ramp;
  • Vertical rise up to 14’;
  • Three sides of unrestricted visibility via high-impact, clear acrylic panels; and
  • A small 4′ x 5.5’ footprint.

Clarity 16E Options:

To meet the specific needs of our clientele, Ascension also offers several other options for the Clarity 16E, including:

CORROSIVE ENVIRONMENT PACKAGE The standard Clarity 16E is already well protected against corrosion with features such as stainless steel hardware and premium powder-coating rated for outdoor use. However, for the highest possible level of protection in harsh environments, the Corrosive Environment Package adds zinc-rich primer to critical lift components prior to powder-coating.
FULL-HEIGHT ENCLOSURE The Full-Height Enclosure extends approximately 7 feet above the upper landing, and includes a full-height (80-inch) door that matches the enclosure. The top remains open. (For a closed top, add the Watertight Dome Package).
WATERTIGHT DOME PACKAGE The Watertight Dome Package incorporates thermostatically-controlled forced ventilation and a watertight dome made of impact-resistant thermoplastic. This package is only available with the Full-Height Enclosure option.
POWER GATE OPERATORS The Power Gate Operator (upper and/or lower) opens and closes the gate automatically at the touch of a button.

  • Vertical rise up to 42 inches;
  • A small 5’ x 4’ footprint; and
