Public Lifts and step Lifts

Safe and easy accessibility for all wheelchair users

Public access for disabled people is an essential part of every public building. Platform lifts are the most common solution to overcoming barriers to wheelchair users. 
Step lifts and ramps are also other popular options that are to be considered,

The Importance of installing a Platform Lift in your public building

In the UK alone the Disability Rights Commission are considering in excess of 20,000 cases (as at May 2007) for prosecution against service providers and employers who have not made the necessary adjustments to make their premises accessible to disabled people.
Fines of up to £50,000 can be imposed should you be found to be in breach of the Disability Discrimination Act.
Public access for disabled people is an essential part of every public building. Platform lifts are the most common solution.
Available as either a vertical rise platform lift or, where space is limited for this application, as an inclined rail platform lift which follows the contours of the staircase and folds neatly away when not in use. Even “portable” vertical rise units are available for situations where regular, permanent installations are not practical, or simply not always required.
Costs are only a fraction of those associated with conventional elevators, and they can be installed quickly and with a minimum of building work or disruption . 
The majority are suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.

 Public Access Lifts → Access Vector

The Vector is a vertical platform lift, especially designed to easily fit into your building. You don’t even need to dig a deep pit in the floor; and, although we do recommend a 5 cm recess, a drive up ramp is an option.
The Vector has proven to be a very safe design and meets all the demands of today. The Vector is a platform lift, a shaft and an engine room all in one, making installation simple, without requiring any major structural alterations or drastic architectural adaptations. The standard carrying capacity is 400 kg and this can be upgraded to 630 kg. Operating in some countries up to 9 m high, the safety features include “hold to run” controls and an operating speed of 0.15 m/s.
  • Increased carrying capacity to 630 kg
  • Automatic door openers
  • School locking
  • Different platform sizes in length (128 or 198 cm) or width (90 or 110 cm)
