Whether its just a few steps that present a problem, or access through a variety of levels up to 13m, then Invalifts Ltd, one of the UK’s leading platform lift companies, can supply and fit safe and reliable powered access with minimum building work and maximum savings in just two or three days, depending on the height. Widely specified and approved hundreds of the company’s MC2000 platform lifts have been installed in every type of new or existing private or public building.
As well as the less able the platform lifts provide an extra benefit for young mothers with pushchairs and toddlers and senior citizens who are still mobile but find stairs arduous.
The MC2000 is self-standing in its own steel clad or glazed structure that includes the drive system. It is operated by single phase 240v and no overhead machinery room or large pit beneath the unit is required. Because the model has its own freestanding shaft, and complies with all UK and EC Directives covering safety fire and machinery, minimal building work is required thus providing a convenient and cost effective answer for architects and specifiers. They are widely accepted by Local Authority Access Officers.
The drive incorporates conventional lift technology with the added benefit of an overspeed governor and safety gear. Door designs come in many choices and are able to be fire rated, with intelligent automatic door openers being available. An extensive range of colour finishes are available for the shaft, or doors, together with key switch operation or ‘School Locking’ for extra security. Telephone, auto dialler and intercom systems are also available. Other benefits include a small enclosure footprint of 1250mm by 1560mm which gives a 1.1m by 1.4m platform that is able to carry 5 persons or 400kg.
In this age of sustainability the unit is probably the greenest lift on the market, with the power consumption being minimal, costing just a few pence per hour of operation.
Invalifts has a nationwide team of approved highly trained service engineers who can reach anywhere in mainland UK 24 hours a day and 365 days of the year. The company prides itself on providing a next working day service. It also offers a free access survey covering powered platform access in conjunction with the client.
