ITV Carlisle Gets External Lift
Invalifts were asked by the well known TV production company, ITV, to consult on disability access to one of its offices in Carlisle. The client did not want to lose any vital space within the building and so a space outside the building was selected to form an external lift shaft in which to fit the space efficient MC2000 Platform lift.
Invalifts worked with a specialist external shaft fabricator to design and build the external shaft from steel and kingspan cladding to provide a weatherproof structure for the MC2000 platform lift to be installed into. The builders work included forming the concrete plinth for the lift and forming the external openings at each level.
The MC2000 Platform Lift was then fitted inside the cladded external shaft, with it’s unique twin guided chain drive providing a smooth ride whilst still ensuring maximum space within the lift.
The client wanted the lift to be as unobtrusive as possible and so the fire rated lift doors were chosen that would match the internal doors in the building. The doors were left in the standard colour as white was used throughout the building. The client was thrilled with the result, and Robert McNulty from ITV had this to say:
“Both myself and the team here at ITV Border in Carlisle are very pleased with our new lift. The whole process from the planning through to the installation has been conducted in an efficient and professional manner. The operation of the lift is really simple and the safety aspects are re-assuring. The finish is superb and this important addition to our office brings us up to date and in line with other leading and forward thinking businesses.”
This is one of many lifts that Invalifts have installed in commercial locations throughout the UK including lifts at the BBC, Next, Aldi and Wickes. To find out more about the MC2000 platform lift, you can give Invalifts a call on 0845 468 2543 and speak to one of their friendly experts.
