Platform and table lifts
Platform lifts — wheelchairs, baby buggies, accompanied trolleys
Public buildings, department stores
These vertical platform lifts are very useful where a short flight of stairs makes access to a higher or lower level impossible or difficult for wheelchair users or parents pushing prams or buggies.
Since the Disability Discrimination Act required equal access opportunities for everyone in public buildings, the platform lift has undergone its own revolution in design, purpose and efficacy.
Platform lifts – features and style
This type of short-haul lift is highly customisable. Clients, particularly architects and property managers responsible for the function and form of a building, like the custom finish capabilities that manufacturers provide: glass, anodised aluminium, gloss wood varnish, and even bright block colour.
Platform lifts – good options
Platform lifts are a very good alternative to installing a lift in a two-story building. They’re cheaper to buy and easier to install. The overriding advantaging is that they consume less space, and invariably can fit into areas where space is limited or awkward. They’re usually hydraulically driven on a scissor hoist.
These adjustable height tables, very robust, and fairly portable (some models are fitted with wheels) remove the need for excessive human heavy lifting, reaching or bending.
