As the world becomes increasingly aware of the importance of inclusivity, the focus on accessible design in public spaces has intensified. In the realm of aquatic recreation, innovative pool lifts and hoists are revolutionising the way we approach accessibility, ensuring that individuals of all abilities can enjoy the therapeutic benefits and joy of swimming. Let’s dive into the advancements that these technological marvels bring to the forefront, elevating accessibility standards in pool facilities.
Assistive Technology: Traditional accessibility solutions often fell short in providing a seamless experience for individuals with mobility challenges. However, the advent of cutting-edge technologies in pool lifts and hoists is breaking down barriers. From hydraulic systems to battery-powered lifts, these innovations are taking ‘user friendly’ to a whole new level.
Adaptable Designs: One size does not fit all when it comes to pool facilities. Recognising this, Para Mobility manufacture pool hoists and lifts with adaptable designs to suit various pool configurations and requirements. Whether it’s an above-ground pool, a spa, or a large aquatic center, our hoists and lifts are engineered to provide accessibility across diverse environments.
Compact and Portable Solutions: Accessibility should not be confined to permanent installations. Portable pool hoists are a flexible solution, allowing both aquatic centres, public swimming pools and residential home users to cater to diverse needs. Our compact and movable Pelican and Kingfisher Pool Hoists are particularly beneficial for temporary installations or facilities with changing pool layouts.
User-Friendly Controls and Operation: Ease of use is a cornerstone of the latest pool lifts and hoists. User-friendly controls and simple operation ensure that individuals with varying abilities can independently access the pool. Intuitive designs prioritise a seamless and dignified experience for all users.
Versatility in Lifting Options: Innovative pool hoists offer versatility in lifting options, accommodating different needs and preferences. From sling-style and chair hoists to wheelchair platform lifts, these adaptations cater to a spectrum of mobility challenges, ensuring that individuals can choose the option that suits them best.
Enhanced Safety Features: Safety is paramount in aquatic environments. Modern pool lifts are equipped with enhanced safety features, including secure harness systems, automatic braking mechanisms, and emergency stop functions. These features not only promote user confidence but also contribute to accident prevention.
Battery-Powered Efficiency: Our pool lifts are powered by a rechargeable 24v battery, ensuring energy efficiency and sustainability. This not only aligns with the broader trend of eco-conscious practices but also ensures uninterrupted accessibility even in the event of power outages.
Seamless Integration with Pool Environments: Aesthetics and functionality can coexist seamlessly. Innovative pool hoists are designed with a focus on aesthetic integration, ensuring that they harmonise with the pool environment. This design approach aims to enhance the overall visual appeal of the facility while promoting inclusivity. Clients can select the powdercoated finish that best suits their individual space.
Compliance with Accessibility Standards: The Para Mobility Hoist range is Designed and manufactured in Australia by Para Mobility, is tested in accordance with ASA 3581 and complies with Disability Discrimination Act (Access to Premises – Buildings) under the Building Code of Australia.
Empowering Independence and Inclusion: Ultimately, the goal of these innovative pool lifts and hoists is to empower individuals with disabilities, granting them the independence to enjoy aquatic activities. By elevating accessibility standards, these technologies contribute significantly to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment in pool facilities worldwide.
As we embrace the era of innovation, the evolution of pool lifts and hoists stands as a testament to the commitment to inclusivity. By investing in these transformative technologies, pool facilities not only meet accessibility standards but also foster a culture of empowerment, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to make a splash in the world!
