Platform Lifts for Disabled Access

For those of us who are able to manage our homes, go to work and shop without using a wheelchair, the obstacles and barriers to access will be largely invisible. For the wheel chair users amongst us, however, the world looks very different. Busy High Streets make shopping more difficult. Visiting friends without a lift in their home can be a problem. And having to insist on adaptations at work can be exhausting.

That’s why Tower Lifts has always been an advocate for platform lift technology. This innovative, competitively priced vertical transport will adapt to virtually any operating environment. And it puts compliance with the 2010 Equality Act within the easy reach of retailers, public building managers and disabled homeowners.

Platform Lifts in the Retail Environment

Many retailers tell us that prior to the platform lift there was simply no way they could provide access to their store for visually or mobility impaired customers. The platform lift doesn’t require a shaft. It is the perfect solution for environments with limited space. Our vertical platform lift works on either an electric, or hydraulic system and is designed to easily accommodate wheelchair users.

Step Lifts for Split Level Flooring

Contemporary architecture aims for inclusive design. But older properties and heritage buildings often encounter the problem of a short flight of steps between one floor level and another. The step lift offers an elegant, stylish solution by providing comfortable transport between the two. This can be installed inside or out, and it can also be seamlessly integrated with its surroundings.

Stairway Lifts for the Home

The UK now has an ageing population and reduced social care. As a consequence, many older homeowners are looking for ways to be able to continue to live in their homes. One of the most popular solutions is a curved incline lift, or a straight inclined lift. We tailor the design of our stairway platform lifts to your stairs. We have even designed a stairlift which can negotiate a spiral staircase!

Making Disabled Access ‘Business as Usual’

The advent of platform lifts has dispelled the majority of obstacles that have historically stood in the way of inclusive access. The Tower Lifts design team have taken this a step further, however, by working to make platform lifts a desirable feature in offices, shops and public buildings. We have created a number of bespoke lift designs which turn a functional installation into a stylish focus.

Platform lifts are now available in a range of colours and finishes. They can be branded, or styled to reflect the décor of your home. For vertical lift installations, the passenger cabin floor and walls can be customised, as can the lift surround. All lift controls are positioned for the comfort of wheelchair users, and the buttons use lights and braille for passengers with impaired sight.
