Stannah Lift Services was recently contacted to provide a number of tailored passenger lifts to fit tight-squeeze spaces in a social housing complex in Swansea.
Stannah removed the existing 4 hydraulic passenger lifts and their separate motor rooms; and replaced them with gearless-traction, motor room-less, 6-person passenger lifts.
Each 450kg lift was designed to fit the exact shaft dimensions to maximise the space available. With a 5mm tolerance, design and manufacture was precisely delivered within 16 weeks.
Further space was saved due to the lift’s motor room-less capabilities, with the controller located in the landing architraves on the top floors.
As principle contractor, the South West England & South Wales branch of Stannah Lift Services was wholly responsible for the project.
Working in partnership with lift consultants, Dunbar and Boardman, Stannah covered every aspect of the operation from lift removal and Health and Safety to installation, cleaning, decorating and commissioning.
The lifts were designed, produced and installed to improve access over 3 and 4 levels for tenants in 4 separate apartment blocks that comprise the Bethesda Court social housing complex.
Operating at a speed of 1.0mps, they are finished in durable satin stainless steel throughout. The lifts feature 3-panel, side-opening doors, full-length rear-view mirrors, downlighter ceilings, grey non-slip floors and grab rails.
The package also comprises comprehensive service cover and support, including 24-hour breakdown cover and service visits with continued lift maintenance by Stannah Lift Services.
