Stannah remasters access and goods movement

  • 20 Mar 2018

Stannah lifts have been installed to remaster goods movement in the Record Store, part of the £250m regeneration of The Old Vinyl Factory, erstwhile home of record label EMI, in Hayes, West London.

The former record-pressing factor has incorporated a 21-passenger/goods lift and two 13-person passenger-only lifts to deliver easy people-access and movement of supplies between six floors.

Screen Shot 2018-03-16 at 11.12.37The triplex operates in wall-mounted shafts in the lift lobby, an integral part of the compact, central core. Their design minimises the structural impact on the building. 

This core also doubles as a fire-fighting shaft, comprising a firefighting stair, mechanically ventilated firefighting lobby and a firefighting lift – one of the 13-person passenger lifts.

All three lifts are finished in satin stainless steel and have a neutral and robust image. Triplex lift controls allow all three lifts to be in service for passengers and for the service lift function to be called independently for goods deliveries. In addition, an automatic phone call system is available for emergencies and a VIP button is available for priority usage, and low-level bump rails for added protection when shifting awkward/heavy trolley-loads.

The addition of the lifts ensures that the building complies with the Equality Act 2010, with the added benefit of six lift maintenance visits in the first year – part of a lift-servicing plan delivered by London and South East (Dartford) branch of Stannah Lift Services.
