These days, many of us are looking for solutions that let us stay comfortably in our homes longer. That’s the beauty of home accessibility products that increase mobility and convenient access to different levels of a home. 

Todd and Melissa Behrens of Behrens Residential Elevators and Lifts specialize providing a wide range of solutions — including high quality Harmar stair lifts, platform lifts, elevators and more — throughout Galveston County. With our area’s coastal environment and raised homes, The Behrens also offer Harmar products specifically designed for outdoor use. 

Proven in nearly every climate and environment, the Harmar Outdoor Stair Lift offers the exceptional durability needed to handle the elements. It’s engineered to withstand long-term outdoor use in temperatures from zero to 125 degrees.

Weatherproofed, zinc-plated components, aluminum track and gear box are all designed for long-term use outdoors, as are the seat cushions constructed of exterior marine grade vinyl. Internal and external covers ensure even more protection. For safety, low-voltage controls with a Class 2 circuit prevent injury even if a short occurs in electrical system.  

Indoors, the Harmar Alpine line offers a proven rack and pinion drive with the added comfort of Quiet Drive and Soft Start-Stop technology. Durable and reliable, the DC drive provides easy access to manual backup in case of power interruption. The models — Alpine, Alpine Express and Alpine Signature — provide custom options for seating style and upholstery plus the Alpine Signature offers up to a 350-pound capacity.

Engineered to the highest standards, Harmar’s Pinnacle Premium is industry’s leading stair lift, folding to a compact 11-inch width. The aluminum track also folds automatically at the bottom step to eliminate obstruction and potential hazard; safety sensors stop the lift instantly at obstacles. Pinnacle Premium carries up to 350 pound. Also available is the industry-leading Pinnacle Heavy Duty with a 600 pound capacity, contoured 25-inch wide seat, and up to 40 feet of travel. 

Raised coastal homes protect from rising waters but make life inconvenient when transporting groceries and home goods to living quarters. Behrens Residential Elevators and Lifts recommends a Harmar Coastal Cargo Lift for quality and its 26-foot range. Features include reversible swing doors on both sides and optional wireless call-send controls. 

Behrens Residential Elevators and Lifts emphasizes personal service and offers a free in-home consultation to discuss your options in order to determine the solution that best fits your need. They can also provide turnkey service to ensure an attractive and safe installation. For a free consultation, call: 409-621-1167.
