EN81-72 Firefighter Lift in London

Tower Lifts are delighted to have been awarded the contract to fit two passenger lifts at Sutton Court, Sutton in London. This twelve-storey apartment block is situated just five minutes from Sutton town centre and provides a perfect location for commuters working in central London as it provides easy access to the City in around thirty minutes. Our lift engineers in London will be installing a standard passenger lift alongside an EN81-72 Firefighter lift to provide access to all floors.

Why an EN81-72 Firefighter Lift is Necessary for Apartment Blocks

EN81-72 firefighter lift

In order to protect and ensure the safety of residents living in apartment blocks, firefighter lifts are installed in order to:

  • Allow firefighters to reach the source of the fire.
  • Access floors where residents of the building may be trapped.
  • Maintain mobility for the fire services when stairs may be being used for evacuation.
  • Restrict resident use of the lift for evacuation as this may place them in further danger.

Our lift engineers in London choose the EN81-72 Firefighter lift to install in apartment blocks because it meets all current specifications, and provides an excellent safeguard for residents. The lift includes a trapdoor providing access into the lift shaft, and the controls are especially protected against water. Most important, the lift can be controlled by firefighters in the case of a fire, ensuring that lift traffic is restricted to the fire-services.
