Enclosed Wheelchair Lifts and New England Weather!
Wheelchair lift enclosures are very popular in New England because of our harsh winters. Most of the enclosures are made of plexi-glass so you can see outside the enclosure and the look of the unit is better. Keep in mind that wheelchair lift enclosures are not water tight, they are weather resistant. That means that they are designed to keep out the leaves, and a vast majority of precipitation. There will always be some moisture and drips inside the enclosure. With that being said, an enclosure for a wheelchair lift is almost a necessity in New England for commercial applications. The picture shown here is of an enclosed vertical wheelchair lift in a local New Hampshire College.
