Lifts With A Rise Below 1000mm

For rises below 1000mm, the Sesame patented wheelchair platform lift offers a practical disabled access solution with a modern, stylish exterior that belies its simple, user-friendly operating system. The lift is built with a unique wheel stop which is designed to prevent wheelchair wheels from moving around on the platform once in position, and the lift conforms to British Standards and Part M Building Regulations.

When a user presses the lift up button whilst on the lifting platform, the wheel stop rises a total of 100mm before the lift itself rises, therefore stabilising the wheelchair and preventing it from rolling off the platform while in motion. Users will feel 100% safe and secure when being elevated on the lift.

Wheelchair Lifts with a Rise Above 1000mm

For rises that are above 1000mm, we have designed a fully enclosed wheelchair lift, with side handrails and gates or rising barriers, all in accordance with British Standards and Part M Building Regulations. When the lift button is pressed, the gate or rising barrier surrounds and secures the wheelchair for a safe ascent.

For rises above 1000mm, Sesame has designed a fully enclosed wheelchair lift with side handrails and gates or rising barriers in accordance with British Standards and Part M Building Regulations. When the lift up button is pressed, the gate or rising barrier closes and rises respectively, fully surrounding the user for a safe ascent. Submit RFQ

Please Note

We do not clad the System ourselves; we leave this to the sub-contracted experts i.e. stonemasons, to lay the stone. The client may wish to use their on-site floor-layers, stonemasons, etc. to save cost. Alternatively we can supply our own sub-contractors.#
