Variations to the Cambridge Part M Lift
If you do not want to see the gates on the upper landing or on the lift you can use the Sesame Westminster Equality Act Lift. However, this system requires more pit depth.
If there is not enough pit space for the stairs to retract horizontally then the Seattle ADA Lift allows for the stairs to retract vertically.
If you do not want the handrails to rise with the lift but you still need to fully enclose the user with barriers to a height of 1100mm then the Sesame Westminster Equality Act Lift can be used
If it is a platform only lift for standing and wheelchair users then the Windsor Mobility Lift may be the solution
