Wheelchair Lift Design, Installation and Maintenance
Tower Lifts provide tailor-made platform lift services for commercial and residential buildings that need access for mobility impaired visitors and are unable to do so using existing vertical transport. Platform lifts can be travel between up to four floors, making all areas accessible to residents and visitors.
What Is a Platform Lift?
Platform lifts are designed to offer access to wheelchair users and anyone who has difficulty using stairs. They don’t require a lift shaft for installation, which makes them an adaptable and cost-effective technology for workplaces or homes of any size. Easy to install, and operate, the platform lift travels at 0.15MPS in low rise buildings of between 2-4 floors.
Platform Lift Services From Tower Lifts
Tower Lifts have many years’ experience providing tailored platform lift solutions for buildings of all shapes and sizes. We can provide installation both internally and externally for step lifts, curved or straight platform stair lifts, and vertical platform lifts. These are adapted to their operating environment and can be finished to integrate seamlessly with brand colours, or home décor.
1. Platform Lift Design
The process of design always starts with a site visit by one of our lift designers. They will discuss your requirements and assess the commercial or residential environment in which the lift will operate. There are a number of different types of platform lift, and our design engineer will recommend the most appropriate for you:
- Step Lifts. Also known as low rise platform lifts, the step lift is ideal for short flights of stairs, or split-level floors. They are designed for wheelchair users to roll onto and use independently, and can be installed inside or outside a building. They are particularly useful for steps leading to the front entrance of a building.
- Curved and Straight Inclined Lifts. These lifts allow wheelchair users access up stairways whether straight, curved or even spiral. A wheelchair can be rolled directly onto the platform, without the user needing to leave it. When not in use, the platform folds back to allow for foot passengers on the stairs.
- Vertical Platform Lifts. These look similar to a traditional passenger lift. The cabin will be large enough to transport a wheelchair with user, and the controls will be customised for easy access. The vertical platform lift can be installed indoors or, if space is limited, outdoors.
2. Platform Lift Installation
Once the platform lift model is decided upon, and the finish is agreed, we schedule installation. Our engineers are experienced and factory trained, which means that they are able to work with a range of different lift manufacturers and models. They will work safely and efficiently and seek to provide minimal disruption.
There is no standard installation period, as every environment is different, but we would normally expect the work to be carried out in 2-4 days. Tower Lifts is UKAS and Lift Cert ISO 9001 accredited. This guarantees the highest level of technical competence and standards.
3. Platform Lift Maintenance
When the Tower Lifts installation team handover your new platform lift, it will be in perfect working condition. In order to keep it that way, we recommend regular scheduled maintenance. Tower Lifts offers a tailor-made maintenance contract which takes into account the age of your platform lift, its average usage, and positioning. Our 24/7 repairs are included in the contract to ensure speedy remediation in the event of a breakdown.
