External Platform Lifts

Accessibility options are essential for any building to ensure those who experience difficulties with climbing stairs can easily and independently access your building. Lifts are beneficial for many groups of people, including wheelchair users, the elderly, and mothers with large pushchairs but more generally, anyone who finds taking the stairs difficult . For this reason, an external platform lift could be an effective solution to traverse difficult external stairs. Our team of highly skilled and experienced engineers will efficiently install your lift and offer ongoing maintenance to ensure your lift continues to function properly. 

Our external platform lifts have a capacity of 400kg and would normally be aimed at a platform size to suite wheelchair passenger and attendant, while also giving adequate space for a mother and buggy. So, if you’re concerned about the accessibility options on your site, contact us to start the process of installing external platform lifts
