- The Lift
The London Access 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.
We can insert manual removable barriers at a height of 1100 mm to allow standing users to travel on the platform.
The lift table can be made to accept any cladding material. The stairs lower to create the platform, therefore the stair cladding makes up most of the lift table finish.
Nominal Platform dimensions for this lift can vary due to site requirements. However they are more than or equal to:
1409 x 986 mm
The platform can have a button post for independent control or a removable hand held post that is inserted by a member of staff.
Please see The Lifting Actuator link for more information on the mechanism used to raise and lower the chair lift.
- The Stairs
The London Access Lift has stairs that raise and lower vertically thus removing the requirement for a pit behind the top step riser.
In this example, the top step riser is not a moving stair. However, to save on space we can make the top landing lower as part of the 1409 mm platform footprint.
When the stairs lower the surrounding stair profile will be revealed. Typically this is clad in stainless steel as it is not seen when the stairs are in their rest position. This side stair profile houses a locking mechanism that stabilises and supports the stairs when they are in their rest position.
Please see retracting stair technical page for more information.
- The Upper Landing Barrier
The London Access Lift can work with any of our upper landing barrier systems. This example uses the existing door.
Please see Upper Landing Barriers for more information.
- User Type
The London Access Lift is for wheelchair users only. However, when the manual removal barrier option is added, standing users can travel on this lift.
Please see on lift barriers for more information.
- System Requirements
The London Access Lift comes with a solid stainless steel skirt below the lift, to save on pit depth we can replace this with a set of bellows. 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 see The Sesame Stair Lift Controls for more information on the controls for this style of lift.
- Variations to the London Access Lift
The Buckingham Listed Building Lift is a variation which does not have the side stair profile travelling with the lift which saves space.
The Big Ben Electric Stairs are also a variation where the stairs retract horizontally not vertically.
