Commercial Platform Lift for Kingsford School

Commercial Platform Lift for Kingsford School

Kingsford Community School is a secondary school based in Beckton, East London. The school has 1,500 pupils and is an International School with Confucius Classroom status with a diverse range of students speaking over 65 languages throughout the campus.

The school recently required a disabled access solution to reach classrooms and offices on a mezzanine floor, so they turned to Invalifts for their Commercial Platform Lift. This lift requires just a 50mm pit, or ramp in leiu, no machine room, and comes supplied complete with its own shaft, minimising building work and allowing for a speedy installation of around 2-3 days.

The lift platform includes a GSM auto dialler to provide communication from the platform. The addition of the GSM unit to the auto dialler mean that the school do not need to provide a dedicated telephone line but just a registered SIM card to be able to make emergency phone calls from the lift.

School key locking was specified, to restrict access to the platform, so only people with a key could be using the platform.

With tinted glass in the doors and shaft, and a smart grey aluminium (RAL 9007) powder coated finish, both bespoke options, the lift blends perfectly into the school environment.
