Platform Lift with the option to lock the lift in the up position (The users home)
- The Upper Landing Barrier
The People's Lift often uses the existing upper landing door (The user's home) as the upper landing barrier. This is so the lift seamlessly blends into the home which is also ideal for listed buildings.
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 People's Lift houses 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 Edinburgh Access Lift
Rather than the sites existing door acting as the upper landing barrier, the Sesame rising barrier can be used as seen here: Whitehall DDA Lift
The removable handheld post can be upgraded to a rising button post that rises through the lift platform. The post then retracts completely out of sight when not in use, as seen here: Victoria Chair Lift in London 1058.
Alternatively, the removable handheld post can be replaced with a permanent button post as seen here: Mayfair Stairlift. This system also requires a significantly shallower lift pit.
If you need to maintain the same layout of the staircase but do not have the vertical pit depth then the Kensington Stairlift in London 1052 is the answer.
