The on lift barriers
|Total rise||Barriers required||Limitations|
|Rise 0 to 200mm||No barriers or wheel-stops are required||Only available in private properties or supervised environments.|
|Rise over 200mm but less than 1000mm for wheelchair users||A wheel-stop is required. This is a vertically rising stainless steel barrier, 100mm high as seen on our Sesame Waterloo Lift. The wheel-stop prevents the wheelchair from rolling off the lift. This wheelstop does not protect standing pedestrians from falling off the lift. An alternative Sesame system that caters for standing users to travel on the lift is the Sesame Westminster Stair Lift.|
The wheelstop system is for seated users only. Ambulant disabled people are often presented with a wheelchair to travel whilst seated on the chair lift.
A barrier 1100mm in height is needed at the upper landing level to stop anyone falling down the void. This could be a rising barrier, gate, manual barrier or a door, please click on the following Upper Landing Barrier link for more information.
|For seated users only. This option should not be used for standing pedestrians as the wheel-stop will present a trip hazard to anyone standing on the lift.|
|Rise over 1000mm & standing users||The lift must be fully enclosed on all four sides to a height of 1100mm on the lift table. This allows people who are standing to use the lift. The Sesame Pimlico Lift houses 3 rising barriers on the lift table. The Sesame Whitehall DDA Lift uses the surrounding handrails and the on lift rising barrier. The Sesame Windsor Lift uses permanent handrails and an automatic gate. |
Again an upper landing barrier is needed to protect the void that is created when the stairs retract.
