    Natural light can make your home feel more spacious, and it can even improve your overall mood and health. When designing an accessible home, it’s important to ensure that your source of natural light is easy to adjust without compromising your safety.

    Coastal cargo lifters are designed to hold up to 250# and carry your cargo upstairs where you want it to be. The caged platform is extremely durable, and the up/down, and call/send controls allow you to control the unit whether you’re standing beside it, or at the other end of the stairs.

    The car and drive system is pre-installed and runs on a defined track that is easy to place and set-up. There are no pulleys to worry about, and the 1/2 hp motor means this machine has plenty of lift for whatever you need to move. Plus, the car itself is 36” × 24” wide, and features 24” side panels. This make the car wide enough to carry the vast majority of items you need to haul. Keep in mind that it is not large enough for you to safely use as a riding elevator.
