Niche’s Altair vertical lifts can be used as disabled access lifts, as they meet the needs of wheelchair users and passengers with disabilities. When it comes to making businesses, shops and restaurants compliant with The Equality Act 2010 (formerly DDA), many of our customers have chosen the Altair disabled lift for its ease-of-use and affordability.
