Platform Lifts Residential

Our design team is fond of saying that a great idea is one that solves an existing problem, can be explained simply, and adapts easily to different environments. The platform lift ticks all those boxes. It was originally designed to help the commercial environment adapt to people with a range of disabilities, and wheelchair users. Now they’re being used extensively across the UK in shops, offices, schools and residential settings.

Flexibility is Built in to Platform Lifts

The platform lift has been successful because it can be installed virtually anywhere. It doesn’t require a lift shaft, and the technology allows for adaptive design. At one time a lift in a residential setting was cost-prohibitive, as well as being technically impossible in the majority of domestic residencies. The platform lift changed all that, making the home lift a realistic goal for most homeowners.

As platform lift technology has developed, so have the design elements. Our bespoke lift installations integrate seamlessly with the style and décor of their surroundings. It’s a commonplace now for clients to experience their home lift as both a practical and aesthetic enhancement. Colour finishes and cabin customisation is an integral part of our design process.


Problems Solved by Platform Lifts in Residential Settings

For the majority of our residential clients, platform lifts solve the problem of access. Whether we’re installing them in a family home, or in a social care residential setting, they provide a range of benefits:

  • Continued use of stairways. For older clients, or wheelchair users, stairs are a major challenge to overcome. The straight inclined, or curved inclined, platform lift  provides the solution. They’re excellent space-savers, whilst offering a reliable and comfortable transport experience. Tower Lifts has even created a bespoke platform lift for spiral stairs!
  • Access 3 floors of your home. The vertical platform lift is a self-supporting structure that can travel between 9-12 metres. The passenger cabin is large enough to accommodate a wheelchair, or 2 standing passengers comfortably. It travels at 0.15mps and is designed to be quiet when in transit.
  •  Internal or external access. Our platform lifts not only future-proof residential interiors. They also ensure that gardens can be enjoyed despite steps and split level design features. The step lift sports an elegant mechanism which springs into action when needed, and offers an easy transition between internal or external surface levels.
  •  Transportation of shopping, meals and laundry. Physical access is usually the primary motive for installing platform lifts at home. There is also, however, the logistical problem of moving things around the house, if you don’t have regular support or care. The dumbwaiter lift is installed at waist height and is a small goods lift, ideal for moving small objects around the home.
