The Oxford Disability Lift is set of horizontally retracting stairs, a gate at the upper landing level, and a rising button post on the lift table.

The Sesame Oxford Disibility Lift
  • Minimum horizontal pit length


  • Minimum platform size

    1400mm x 1010mm

  • Maximum rise


  • Minimum pit depth below lower landing



  • The Lift

    The Oxford Disibility Lift uses our wheelstop mechanis; a solid stainless steel toe guard that rises around the platform lift 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.

    The lift platform houses a rising button post that rises when the stairs have retracted. This gives the user something to hold onto when travelling on the lift, as well as independent control. At the end of the cycle the button post lowers before the stairs extend so it is completely hidden when the lift is not in use.

    Nominal Platform dimensions for this lift can very due to site requirements, however they are more than or equal to:

    1405mm (l) x 1100mm (w) x 0-999mm (h)

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

  • The Stairs

    The Oxford Disabilit Lift can accommodate up to 7 risers/stairs, or a total rise of 999mm. The width of the stairs must match the minimum width of the lift but can be increased to the clients and/or the sites specifications.

    Please see the retracting stair technical page for more information.

  • The Upper Landing Barrier

    The Oxford Disability Lift has an automatic gate at the upper landing to protect the fall hazard that is created when the stairs retract.

    Please see Upper Landing Barriers for more information.

  • User Type

    The Oxford Disability Lift is for seated users only as the wheelstop only 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.

  • The System Requirements

    The Oxford Disability Lift can come with either bellows to reduce the pit depth or a solid stainless steel skirt below the lift. When using the bellows the width of the lift increases. 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 Oxford Disability Lift

    The upper landing gate can be replaced with an automatic rising barrier that sits out of view when not in use as 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 Thames Stair Lift sits within a pit depth of 160mm + cladding thickness.

    If the horizontal pit depth is an issue then the Victoria Stair Lift with vertically retracting stairs may be a solution.
