Door Transitions

When there is a need for lifts in several rooms, you have to decide how to move the user from room to room and from rail system to rail system.
There are two ways to do this. You can either use a rail transition as shown below with three examples, or you can use a swing solution.

The two different swing solutions are the DH1000 swing where the hoist itself is 'swung' through the door opening, and the GH2 swing where the hanger is 'swung' through the door opening.

Rail transition is the most functional solution both for the user and the carer. However, attention should be drawn to the fact that there are certain limitations in connection with a Swing solution (see the descriptions of the two swing solutions by following the links above).

Transition Through an Ordinary Door

The door plate and the door opening are increased in height so that they reach the lower edge of the rail.


Transition Through an Sliding Door

As with the case of the ordinary door, the door plate and the door opening are increased in height so that they reach the lower edge of the rail. The rail is led through the frame.

The one-sided suspension of a sliding door means that the door can be closed around the rail.


Transition Through an Ordinary Door Opening for Hoist

The hoist is run through an opening in the wall - allowing the original door height to be maintained.

Remember to find out how wide the hole for the hoist should be!
