Platform lift for More House School

More House School in Farnham is an independent school which has been providing high quality educational and pastoral care for boys aged 8-18 with a range of specific learning difficulties for the past 75 years. Their specialist learning environment allows these children to thrive in a way which has not been possible in a traditional school setting.

They recently invested in a new library and media centre to help support their students with new facilities. Invalifts were contacted by the main contractor, P. A. Sewell Construction Limited to supply and install a suitable platform lift allowing easy access between the upper and ground floors.

The MC2000 Platform lift was selected as the perfect solution for this, as the shaft size of just 1250mm wide by 1560mm deep, enabled a fully compliant Part M platform size. The lift also offered glazed doors with key locking to restrict unauthorised usage, and an intercom was fitted as a means of communication in the event of an emergency.

The lift was fitted in just a few days with a minimum of disruption, as the only requirements were a 60mm pit recess, a vertical hole through the floor and a single phase electric supply at the top floor.

The school were delighted with their new lift, and look forward to improved access for many years to come. To find out more about the MC2000 platform lift or other products, you can give Invalifts a call on 0845 468 2543 and speak to one of their friendly experts.
