Aquatic Access Inc. manufactures three versions of its ADA-compliant IGAT-180 Pool Lift. On the IGAT-180 units, the seats rotate 180 degrees as it lowers into the pool and lifts out of the water. All versions are powered by water pressure and require neither electricity nor pump. The lifts install into a deck socket and can be easily removed for off-season storage. All Aquatic Access lifts can be purchased directly from the manufacturer or through selected suppliers world-wide.

Stage Presence

Ascension portable wheelchair lifts allow access to stages and platforms. One lift serves for multiple locations, replacing fixed lifts or ramps that consume valuable floor space. Use these lifts whenever, wherever you need them. They're easy to use, have no installation costs and can be set up by one person in just minutes. The lifts plug into a standard 120-volt outlet and only draw 9 amps. A sensor automatically stops the lift at the exact stage height, with no pre-setting required, providing for independent use. The ADA-compliant lifts are quiet, attractive, durable, safe and carry a 10-year drive-train warranty.

Space at the Table

People using wheelchairs are kept in the center of activities with side-accessible wheelchair tables. By removing a section of one seat, an opening is made for a wheelchair. The opened side includes small seats for one person on either side of the wheelchair. Tables can be 6 feet or 8 feet long, with side access on one side. A 12-foot-long table is also available with two side-access openings diagonally opposite each other. Tables are available with lumber, aluminum, recycled plastic or vinyl-coated steel for the tops and seats. These tables can help you comply with current ADA guidelines.
