Churches are a place where people congregate to build a community and practice their religion. As a communal area that’s available to the public; accessibility should always be priority. Under the Equality Act, reasonable adjustments need to be made for people with different abilities; whether this is someone who’s mobile via a wheelchair (who may require a wheelchair platform lift), or anyone with physical problems that’ll find difficulty in moving around the premises.
Dependent on your facility layout, you may need to provide accessibility from one floor to the next, from the car park to the building etc. Here at Invalifts, we prioritise installing the best lift based on the facility type and your personal requirements.
As well as fitting lifts for safety reasons; it’s also important that your community and member of the public feel safe and still feel the need to stay with your particular church.
All previous clients have been overly satisfied with the finished results – this is because we don’t just install your lift and leave; we offer service and maintenance options to keep your installation fit for use. We've fitted a range of different platform lifts at churches and religious buildings around the UK. Below, you can read about some of the lifts we've fitted:
