Redefining the Industry Standard

The Clarity 16E is a fully enclosed platform lift, the latest wheelchair lift to be introduced by Ascension.

Ascension, the manufacturer of the globally circulated Protégé and Virtuoso wheelchair lifts, has unveiled their latest platform lift, the Clarity 16E. The Clarity 16E was conceived to support organizations placing a premium on patron dignity and visual appeal to do so without sacrificing safety, reliability or performance. Accordingly, the Clarity 16E offers a unique combination of rise capability, space economy, ADA-compliance, and modern aesthetic.

Designed with flexibility in mind, the Clarity 16E is capable of providing access for elevation changes between 3’ and 14’. In addition, the footprint of the Clarity 16E is 48” wide by 67” deep, making it the narrowest lift suitable for public facilities currently available on the market. Thus, the Clarity 16E is suitable for a range of locations, from K-12 schools and universities to high-end businesses, theaters, and retail stores.

Merging unparalleled safety with uncompromising image, the Clarity 16E is fully enclosed, yet provides three sides of unimpaired visibility via transparent high-impact acrylic windows. To achieve this combination, the machinery cabinet is uniquely located on the landing side of the lift.

Furthermore, underlying the Clarity 16E’s modern aesthetic is a full complement of ADA-compliant features, including non-slip flooring, an illuminated handrail, and a flush, non-pinch machinery cabinet.

The Clarity 16E also features a ground-level platform that removes the need for an entry ramp or installation pit; a feature that makes the lift an ideal solution for renovations and new structures alike. Finally, the Clarity 16E features the industry’s only 20-year warranty.

Ascension will be exhibiting at the 2017 American Institute of Architects (AIA) show in April 2017. Ascension's newest platform lift, the Clarity 16E, will be showcased during the expo.

Appearing at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) conference this April, Ascension representatives and technicians will be on hand to discuss this latest innovation, as well as prior design achievements, and how they benefit modern architectural thought and design. Ascension representatives will be at booth 1224.
