A 13-person Stannah passenger lift has been installed at the Tormead School for girls in Guildford, Surrey. Its adjacent-entry doors allow for the easy movement of people and equipment across the school’s four floors.
The Stannah Xtralift has been fitted within the school’s new four-storey atrium. The passenger lift was specified due to its adjacent-entry doors which could easily handle the demanding workload and large loads of equipment.
The lift also meets all the required standards for schools including the Equality Act 2010, Part M and EN81-70, EN81-1, CE mark and The Lift Directive 95/16/EC.
The Xtralift’s car and landing doors are finished in satin stainless steel complemented by a grey, easy-clean laminated interior; half-height rear-wall mirror; and an anti-bacterial grey floor.
The wall-mounted lift features an energy efficient, fearless traction drive and travels a distance of 8750mm at a speed of 1.0m/s.
The lift is covered by Stannah’s comprehensive service plan which includes 24-hour breakdown and service visits, with continued lift maintenance by the Southern England branch of Stannah Lift Services.
