The best external platform lift to maintain external wheelchair access

To choose the best external platform lift for a specific area, all you need to know is the required lifting height and whether the lift is used for mobility scooters. Each of our platform lifts can stop at any height up to the given maximum height. For example an external platform lift of 3 metres can also be deployed when a stop is required at 2,7 metres. This allows us to deploy a suitable lift to any situation. For landings above 3 metres we recommend deploying one of our passenger lifts. 

Disabled platform lifts for mobility scooters

When the lift is used only for wheelchairs and people with walking aids or pushchairs, any of our external platform lifts will offer plenty of space. Do you expect people in mobility scooters to make use of the lift? Then we recommend to choose a wider external platform lift with such as the external platform lifts 1,5 metres and 3 metres. If you prefer a spacious and userfriendly lift, one of our passenger lift might offer a better solution. These lifts are fully complient to safety regulations as any other permanent lift and offer a spacious cabin indistinguishable from regular lifts.

External platform lifts for public service buildings and care centres

Step-free access to public service buildings and especially health care centres is required at all times. The lives of people who suffer from mobility disorders may be severely disrupted if these services are unavailable. This applies not only to healthcare services, but also to the public services of a town hall, post office, bank or polling station.

When external wheelchair access is obstructed during renovation or maintenance work, deploying an external platform lift is an excellent way to maintain access. The lifts are easy to use, vandal-proof and suitable to overcome a staircase at the entrance to your service building.

External platform lifts in public transport: wheelchair access at train stations

The easiest and most effective way to maintain access for wheelchair users at all times is to deploy one our external platform lifts. Due to the small dimensions these lifts can easily be deployed besides staircases to maintain the regular routing within the station area. If that’s not possible, we can also provide temporary staircases to fully reroute public access to the platforms.
