We manufactured and installed this platform lift into a building in London. This building is home to one of the worlds biggest media platforms. Disabled access is essential for a building which will encounter many visitors year on year. The platform lift installed is for seated wheelchair users only due to the drop.


The Sesame Waterloo Lift has an automatic gate at the upper landing level and a rising platform that sits flush with lower landing when not in use.

Minimum horizontal pit length

500 mm

Minimum platform size

1 400 mm x 900 mm

Maximum rise

999 mm

Minimum pit depth below lower landing

380 mm + revêtement

Features

The Lift

The Waterloo Lift uses our Wheelstop mechanism. A solid stainless steel toe guard that rises around the platform to prevent wheelchair wheels from rolling off the lift. Please see On Lift Barriers for more information.

The lift table can be made to accept any cladding material, the thicker the cladding the deeper the pit depth.

Nominal Platform dimensions for this lift can vary due to site requirements. However they are more than or equal to

1400mm (l) x 900mm (w) x 0-999mm (h)

Please see The Lifting Actuator link for more information on the mechanism used to raise and lower the lift

The Upper Landing Barrier

The Waterloo Lift has an automatic gate at the upper landing to protect the fall hazard.

Please see Upper Landing Barriers for more information.

User Type

The Waterloo Lift is for seated users only as the wheelstop protects wheelchairs from rolling off, it does not protect standing users from falling off. Please see What barriers do I need on the Sesame chair lift? for more information.

System Requirements

The Waterloo Lift can come with either bellows to reduce the pit depth or a solid stainless steel skirt below the lift. Please see concealing the underside of the lift for more information.

For details on the power supply please see the lift power supply.

For general details on the pit depth please see the lift pit.

If the surrounding area presents a crush zone the lift table can be fitted with safety edges to detect an obstruction. Please see Crush hazards surrounding the moving lift for more information.

Please click on the The Sesame Stair Lift Controls for more information on the controls for this style of lift.

Variations to the Waterloo Lift

The permanently fixed on-lift button post can be upgraded to a rising button post that rises through the lift platform. The post then retracts completely out of site when not in use. An example of the rising button post can be seen here: Knightsbridge Stair Lift.

The on-lift permanent button post can be replaced with a removable hand held post as seen here: Kensington Stairlift in London 1052

If the pit depth is an issue the Sesame Jubilee Disabled Access Lift sits within a pit depth of 160mm + cladding thickness. This example also shows the option for a manual gate at the upper landing.

For a fully enclosed platform only lift for seated and standing users please see: Richmond Rising Platform Lift. This also shows a glass rising barrier at upper landing rather than the gate.
