Sesame wheelchair lifts on a fire exit
We’d ask to speak to your Fire Officer at the start of the enquiry in order to discuss this and get their advice. British Standards state that, in the event of a fire, no wheelchair lifts can be used within the building in case of an electricity supply failure – we can supply battery back-ups with the wheelchair lift to ensure this isn’t a problem, but we would insist that the client has a strict fire procedure in place. Again, every individual case is different, so talk to us to find out more about your options.
Sesame wheelchair lifts come with a 24v battery backup as standard. This allows the user to emergency lower the lift, and any upper or on lift barriers, as well as to emergency open any gates on.
