New Piccolo low-speed Machinery Directive platform lift that functions as a passenger lift and ideal for ‘tight-squeeze’ locations
The new hydraulic Piccolo low-speed lift functions and looks the same as a passenger lift, with sliding doors, a fully automatic cabin and landing controls, but it is a Machinery Directive platform lift due to its smooth, 0.15 m/s speed. Simple wall mounted construction also means it does not require a pit or much of an overrun so ideal for ‘tight-squeeze’ locations.
Stannah’s new low-speed passenger lift s was the right solution for the The Pines residential care home, a new supported living service for adults with physical and learning disabilities in Tunbridge Wells. Simple wall mounted construction means it does not require a pit or much of an overrun
The lift features a half-height rear mirror, handrail, grid ceiling and non-slip stud floor. Safety and an emergency telephone connection on the platform with klaxon back-up.
The Pines benefits from the Piccolo’s low power consumption and high performance, making it cost efficient to run and helps meet the requirements of the Equality Act 2010.
Piccolo lift is covered by Stannah’s comprehensive lift service plan
David Callin, Associate Director, Cowan Architects, specialists in healthcare and inclusive environments that designed the scheme): “The Piccolo specification was a perfect match for the demands of this project. Its simplicity of construction means it does not require a pit or much of an overrun, making it a very cost-effective solution, and the single-press controls are ideal for the user group. Add to this Stannah’s reputation and aftercare service, and the Piccolo was the ideal fit.”
