Carters Furniture Store Utilise Existing Shaft
Carters Furniture store in Kidderminster is a long established company selling furniture and interior items from a large showroom.
Invalifts were asked to see if they could find an appropriate space in the building where a disabled access lift could be installed. After discussions an old goods lift shaft was identified as having more than enough space available. The MC2000 Platform Lift only needed a space of 1250mm x 1560mm in order to give a fully compliant wheelchair access lift. The lift had to positioned to one side of the existing shaft as there was a beam at the top floor that cut across the space.
Our engineers removed the cage of the existing goods lift to provide the space required and installed the new lift in 3 days.
The lift was to serve 3 floors with the upper level to be accessed by staff only. A key control unit was fitted to the platform console so that the upper floor button was restricted for use to key holders only.
The client did not want to excavated a 60mm pit and as the existing shaft had a level and well constructed floor it was decided to use a small ramp at the ground floor door.
