Stairway Platform Lift
Why Install a Stairway Platform Lift?
The stairway platform lift is a perfect solution for commercial or public buildings that need an alternative to a traditional passenger lift, or vertical platform lift. The inclined platform lift provides independent access between floors; it is is designed to transport a wheelchair and user up a flight of stairs, whether straight, curved or even spiral.
The inclined lift is also popular with Tower Lifts’ residential clients, many of whom are older couples who are future-proofing their homes. The stairway platform lift is easy to install and doesn’t eat up your living space. It provides access to each floor, and the installation is bespoke to the architecture of your home.
Inclined Stairway Platform Lifts
When you mention ‘stairlifts’ most people think about the ones that slide on a track and have a seat for the passenger. An inclined platform lift works in a similar way, except it has a platform which transports a wheelchair and its user up and down stairs. First and foremost, there’s no need to transfer from your wheelchair onto a seat to use it, and it ensures a comfortable way to access every floor, especially if you don’t have room for a vertical platform lift between floors.
The Benefits of Platform Lift Technology
The platform lift is an innovative and adaptable technology that is designed to enhance access for wheelchair users. As such, it can be depended upon to provide a durable and compliant installation providing consistently high-quality performance for passengers. Its many benefits include:
- Slim, Foldable Design. When not in use stairway platform lifts can be folded away leaving the staircase unencumbered for other users.
- Straight or Curved. Inclined platform lifts are designed to hug the contours of your specific stairway, whatever its shape.
- A Range of Sizes. Inclined platform lifts come in different sizes and can be finished to seamlessly match your internal décor.
- Safety is a Priority. Your stairway platform lift is designed to be compliant with EN81-40 and the Equality Act 2010. Out lifts have integrated safety features.
- Simple Installation. The inclined lift is installed using wall mountings or stanchions wall-mounted or stanchions, making it adaptable to the requirements of your building.
- Additional Passengers. The wheelchair platform can include a seat for an extra passenger that folds away when not needed.
- Interior or Exterior. No matter whether your stairway is indoors or outdoors, the inclined platform lift can still be installed.
Maintenance and Emergency Repair Service
Once your platform lift is installed, we recommend regular servicing in order to maintain the high level of performance it provides. Tower Lifts offers customised maintenance contracts based on the age and volume of usage your lift experiences. An audit of your stairway platform lift will form the basis of our recommendations. These will normally include 24/7 emergency repairs to ensure that users will never find themselves unable to access the building.
