Most ceiling lifts can be installed in an existing home without structural modifications. Your representative will make sure the track is properly installed including any doorway, header or blocking adaptations that may be needed.
If you are planning a remodel or new construction it is recommended that you consult with your Handi-Move representative at the planning stage of the project. They can work with your architect or contractor and advise you on how to properly prepare the area to be ready for a ceiling lift. By considering structural challenges and being proactive with decisions in the location of power, lighting, vents, false ceilings, doorways, headers and blocking the installation of the ceiling lift can be much more efficient.
