Inva SD1000 Commercial Large Capacity Platform Lift

A high quality, enclosed commercial platform lift with a 1000kg weight capacity and landing doors up to 1300mm wide, serving up to 6 levels and 13 metres of travel. 

Introducing the Inva SD1000, the first platform lift of it's kind, offering increased capacity, better accessibility and a robust and reliable design.The INVA SD1000 is designed with the flexibility to fulfil individual requirements and fit in to both new and existing buildings serving up to 6 different levels and a maximum travel of 13m.

We offer a range of platform sizes, for options within healthcare, retail facilities, schools and other venues, both new and existing, that may need to accommodate larger or heavier loads. The increased platform size is complimented by the option of having landing doors that measure up to 1300mm wide, allowing for increased access to the platform for loads such as large goods, beds and larger powered wheelchairs.

The SD1000 large capacity lift complies with Class III Health Care regulatory sizes, making it the ideal solution for transporting beds and their attendants in care homes and similar care facilities. To assist with entering and exiting the lift, there is the option of a hold open facility, which makes transporting larger, more challenging loads a lot easier.

All of this, added to the benefits of only 130mm recess in the lower floor and no requirement for a structural wall shaft, really makes the SD1000 the most flexible and cost effective vertical platform lift on the market.
