Contrary to belief, a platform lift is incredibly easy to install and requires very little alterations to be made to an existing building which is why they are a popular installation inside public properties. Here at Elevators Ltd, we stock a variety of high-quality platform elevators that can travel up to 13 metres in height. Read on as we go over some of the benefits that property owners can expect to receive with an investment in a platform lift…
How do platform lifts improve accessibility?
Aa platform lift is a very effective way to ensure that parents with pushchairs or those with a wheelchair dependence are able to get around effectively in buildings with just two floors. After all, a fully functioning passenger elevator can be too bulky to install when there isn’t a lot of space available to work with. In fact, platform lifts are safety compliant, can be used both inside and outside and are also designed to comfortably fit a wheelchair inside.
Are platform lifts an expensive investment?
Since they are very easy to install in comparison to alternative elevator designs, a platform lift is also one of the most cost-effective options on the market too. In fact, they are considered a low-maintenance accessibility solution which allows property owners to cater to those who require extra needs without breaking the bank in the process. Plus, platform elevators come with an impressive longevity guarantee which makes them the perfect investment for the future.
Where can platform lifts be installed?
It is important that property owners are aware that a platform lift is designed for two story buildings as they can only travel a maximum for 13 metres in height. With this said, they are the perfect solution for shopping centres, outdoor parks and small hotels that want to improve their accessibility without investing in a full passenger elevator system.
Although a platform elevator is installed with the intention to improve accessibility within a public building, it is important that customers are aware of their safety guarantee too. After all, our platform lifts are fitted with a slip-resistant surface and an interlocked mechanical entrance system in order to ensure that every passenger is secure.
