When a firm of architects in Oxford contacted Invalifts for information about their range of lifts, they started on a path that led to the installation of not one, but two different platform lifts for d'Overbroeck's Sixth Form college.
d'Overbroeck's is a co-educational independent school in Oxford who had recently opened an impressive new teaching site for sixth form students with state of the art teaching and boarding facilities. After Invalifts met with the architects in Oxford, they specified two of Invalift's platform lifts for the site, and following the securing of the project by Kingerlee Limited, Invalifts were duly given the order for both lifts.
The first lift was an MC2000 self contained platform lift with shaft, serving two floors with a vertical travel of just over 3 metres. This lift was specified in the standard colour, and upgraded with 1 hour fire doors in an open through arrangement. An optional intercom system was also fitted as means of communication as there was a manned control area. As the lift requires just a 60mm pit, disruption and building works were kept to a minimum.
The second lift chosen was the Invalow, a low rise wheelchair platform lift to deal with a small change in floor levels of 460mm. This open platform lift was supplied in it's standard colour of blue, and used glass infill gate panels to give the lift a light and uncluttered appearance.
Both lifts were installed on site within just 3 days. To find out more about the MC2000 platform lift, or the Invalow, you can give Invalifts a call on 0845 468 2543 and speak to one of their friendly experts.
