At EZ-ACCESS, we are driven by our commitment to provide access solutions that break through barriers of daily life. The Passport Vertical Lift is a great solution for any difficult pathway, porch or platform, providing easy navigation to and from your home. With the addition of Passport Vertical Platform Lift accessories, you can get the most out of your equipment while staying safe and mobile.


  1. Passport Top Landing Gate

In order to prevent improper operation as well as keep your rider safe and protected, use the Passport Top Landing Gate. The gate provides an extra precaution, especially during the upcoming winter months. With the combination of a Pathway Connector Kit, the Top Landing Gate can also quickly be connected to a PATHWAY Modular Access System platform.

  1. Passport Platform Safety Rail

Simple installation of the Passport Platform Safety Rail enhances the stability of the rider and the lift’s operator. As snow, sleet, and ice begin to fall, the Platform Safety Rail gives you increased security when loading and unloading the lift.

  1. Passport Platform Weather Guard

Weather debris can cover and clog your platform lift. Keep your equipment clear with the Passport Platform Weather Guard. Using the Weather Guard, the Safety Pan on your Passport Vertical Platform Lift will stay clean and protected with a quick click into place.
