For lower stages, customers can enjoy a smaller footprint while retaining a full-sized platform and the superior quality only available from an Ascension wheelchair lift. The Ascension Protégé 5442P model provides access to stages, platforms, risers, and other elevation changes up to 42" high. The unit is fully portable and can be easily moved by one person for simple and quick event setup.
The Ascension Protégé vertical portable wheelchair lift provides access to stages, platforms and elevation changes for individuals with disabilities or for those who have difficulty managing steps. The Protégé is completely self-contained and compact, requiring no additional components or installation. The portability feature makes it possible to provide accessibility in multiple locations with just one lift. Use wherever you need it, then simply store it away!
The design of the Ascension Protégé 5442P makes it the top choice for customers who want more than just the status quo. Most importantly, the Protégé lift does not require a machine tower as part of its construction, representing the most immediate visual and aesthetic difference between the Ascension lift and other portable lifts on the market. This also means that the lift passenger’s view is not obstructed and patrons are now able to enter the lift directly at floor level. This unique design gives the lift a clean, professional look and contributes to the overall aesthetic quality that customers have come to expect with an Ascension lift.
The Ascension lift offers superior performance and durability, while simultaneously saving a significant amount of floor space. You also get a product designed to blend into any interior architecture and décor so that the design integrity of the building is never compromised. Whether you select the lift for its attractive appearance or because of its reliable operation, the Ascension portable lift offers flexibility and performance above all others.
Every lift ships as a fully assembled product. There is no installation; the lift plugs into a standard 120-volt outlet and is ready for use. No building alterations or site preparations are required.
The Ascension portable lift is rugged and durable enough for a variety of applications, whether for multiple uses within a particular building (convention center) or for relocation throughout an entire area (school district). The lift is also weather-hardened for temporary outdoor use.
The Ascension Protégé 5442P provides for independent use by individuals with disabilities or those who can’t manage stairs, and it meets ADA requirements. The lift is also CE marked for European distribution.
