Platform lift installed in UK home

  • 5 Feb 2015

Stannah’s Midlift SL platform lift has been installed in a modern family home to enable its residents to move between their living area and their five bedrooms

The platform lift was installed to allow the homeowners to move between the property’s ground-floor living area and the lower ground-floor bedrooms.

It can move up to 0.15mps with a maximum travel distance of 7 metres.

The platform lift can carry a standard load of 400kg and it has been designed with an emergency lowering feature with an alarm, emergency phone and intercom.

Stannah’s Midlift SL platform lift is available in three sizes. The home chose a 1,100 X 1,400mm platform over a 950 X 1,250mm or a 950 X 1,400mm one.

Other features of the lift include an overload indicator and a two-tone chime that plays upon the arrival at each landing.

Audio and visual notifications for floor level and travel direction are also provided.

The elevators’s panoramic glass doors are glazed and finished in lacquered beech, which compliments the home’s blonde wood floors. The structure-supported enclosure that encases the lift eliminates the need for a lifting beam.
