Platform lift at the Warren Centre

Vertical platform lift enables easy access at community centre

  • 9 Oct 2015

A new multi-purpose community and recreation hub in Hampshire has installed Stannah’s Midilift GL vertical platform lift between two floors of facilities.

Designed by architect Derek Philips, The Warren Centre is a popular venue used by clubs, businesses, sports teams and children of all mobility levels – meaning access for all is of utmost importance. 

The centre features meeting/presentation rooms, outreach clinics, computer suites, kitchens, a café, changing rooms and showers.

Contractors JF Building specified the Stannah Midilift, commenting: “Stannah is a recognised name in the UK lift industry and we have specified their lift products on previous projects. 

As such, on reviewing the requirements for The Warren Centre, we had no qualms in specifying their Midilift platform lift as it matched the project’s requirements exactly.”

Midilift GL

Located in the entrance foyer, the Midilift GL offers a minimalist, glazed, structure-supported framework exterior in a white finish.

At ground level, the full-height, fully glazed panoramic hinged door opens, revealing a spacious interior measuring at 950mm x 1400mm.

The waist-height satin stainless steel operation panel features push-button controls, with a grab rail and grey nonslip floor offering stability to ambulant or wheelchair users. An intercom system is in place to provide further reassurance.

The lift travels at .150m/s over a distance of 2600mm, and a half-height, glazed-panel gate allows easy access to and from the 1st floor gallery.

The Midilift vertical platform 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, part of a nationwide network providing comprehensive lift servicing and support.
