Ceiling lift over two floors makes it possible for a person with extensive disabilities to sleep in the loft

Description
Helena lives in a two-story house with a loft. She and her husband sleep in the loft. To get there they installed a ceiling lift that goes over two floors. For safety, they chose to use two ceiling lift motors that run in the same ceiling track and that lift simultaneously. Both lift straps sit on one hanger.

The loft has a fence with a gate that allows the user to enter the loft.

Authors comments
They enhanced safety by using two lift motors. If one motor should break down, it can be disconnected and the other one can be used alone.

Helena’s husband installed the ceiling lift.
