Large Platform Lifts
The large platform lifts from Invalifts have been designed as an extension of our traditional DDA compliant platform lift. With a large 1400mm wide X 2500mm long platform base, as well as a maximum capacity of 1000kg, our large platform lifts are effectively suited to large scale commercial and industrial applications. For example, we have supported and delivered access solutions for clients from a variety of sectors including the medical industry.
The larger platform size can accommodate hospital beds as well as powered and sports wheelchairs, making this product ideal for care homes and hospitals. The increased capacity of 1000kg also means that our large platform lifts are useful in the transportation of light goods.

- What types of platform lifts are there?
Platform lifts come in various sizes and are individually designed to perform different tasks. Some lifts are capable of bearing more weight, for example, whilst others are specifically engineered for the safe transportation of people.
Each commercial application is unique. As such, a different solution, that meets a buyer’s unique specifications, is often required.
We have a wealth of experience across the commercial and industrial sector, having provided businesses and individuals with solutions that range in size and complexity. From solutions that solely transport passengers to goods and service lifts, we have a broad range of build, installation and maintenance experience.
We are uniquely qualified to support you, regardless of the platform lift you require. To start the process or obtain a quote, contact us today.
- How long does it take to install a large platform lift?
This is a question we are asked often. The answer, unfortunately, varies on a client to client basis. Our engineers are both highly qualified and experienced, so installation work is an efficient process.
Typically, our installation team can install a lift as quick as 1 day. We remind clients, however, that more complex structures can take a few days or maybe more. There is also the planning and manufacturing process to consider, which requires a few weeks prior to the actual installation of the lift.
If you are concerned about lead time or have a stringent deadline that you must adhere to, we would love to hear from you. We can work with you to ensure the process is streamlined and the result is delivered when and how you need it to be.
- Can I have a platform lift outside?
Yes, an outdoor installation is absolutely possible. Outdoor platform lifts are specifically designed and engineered to withstand weather conditions and the elements. They often make use of weather resistant materials and unique safety features that allow for uninterrupted performance outdoors.
Our external products are tested rigorously and designed to offer fantastic levels of durability and resistance in outdoor environments, whether that be against rain, snow or prolonged UV exposure.
Accessibility in outdoor areas is just as important as interior spaces. Whether at an entrance to a retail facility or in an industrial space, an external platform lift can offer support whilst meeting regulatory standards.
- Can I install a large platform lift on my own?
Any installation work, including the installation of large platform lifts, needs to be handled and overseen by a qualified professional. Not only is this mandatory from a safety perspective, but it also ensures that any installation work is completed efficiently and to a sufficient standard.
If work is carried out by an inexperienced team, the safety of that team, as well as any one who uses the lift afterwards, is effectively compromised. If you consider that a high percentage of platform lifts are used to transport people, it is imperative that the installation team is highly qualified, experienced and competent.
If you have ample experience and are qualified to carry out installation work, you may install the lift yourself. If not, it is best to enlist the help of an expert. Our experienced team is at hand to assist you.
- Does a large platform lift have a battery backup in case of a power cut?
Yes, all of our lifts are installed with a safety feature that lowers the lift back to the ground safely should there happen to be a power cut or an emergency.
Robert McNulty of ITV
"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.”

“Just a brief note to commend your two engineers Charlie and Martin who have installed my lift.
