Infra: temporary footbridges and lifts maintain optimal passenger flow

Temporary lift and footbridge to maintain an optimal passenger flow

Accessibility and reachability are very important in everyday life. It sounds obvious, but it is not always the case. Whether you plan to travel by bike, bus or airport, we all know how important accessibility to the infrastructure is. Every bus station, crossroad or airport will eventually need renovation or maintenance. Especially then it is important to keep these locations accessible to the public at all times. 

To ensure that every traveler can participate in society, it is important that height differences or barriers do not exclude anyone. That is why we developed temporary passenger lifts. User-friendly and indistinguishable from permanent lift systems. With our wide range of temporary lifts, we are Europe's largest lift rental company. And as a decisive family business, we are available 24/7. So you don't have to worry about temporary accessibility.

Step-free access at all times with vertical platform lifts and RECO Plug and Play lifts

For disabled people, it’s important that public spaces such as stations are always accessible threshold-free. Because these locations often feature small elevations up to 3 metres, RECO Lift Solutions also rents temporary platform lifts. These lifts take up less space than a ramp, are more practical for public spaces than stair lifts, and quicker deployable than a complete temporary passenger lift. Do you need a higher passenger lift? The RECO Plug and Play Passenger Lift might be a good solution.

Temporary footbridge hire & temporary passenger lift rental at bus station

In Ilpendam (Netherlands), contractor Van Gelder is improving the accessibility of the Waterland region by constructing a rush-hour bus lane between Purmerend and Ilpendam (N235). To keep the bus stops accessible to every passenger during the construction of a pedestrian tunnel, Van Gelder has chosen a fully accessible RECO pedestrian underpass. This includes a walkway with two stair towers and two temporary passenger lifts. In this way, barrier-free accessibility for travellers to the bus stops has been created.

Temporary lifts at Manchester Airport

Manchester Airport underwent a major transition. Half of Terminal 2 was demolished for the renovation. To compensate for the lost capacity, Manchester Airport opened a temporary gate lounge in the airside for passengers. RECO Lift Solutions has fitted the lounge with two RECO PP Temporary Passenger Lifts. These enable travellers to reach the temporary lounge from Terminal 2.

This is why RECO Lift Solutions and RECO rent public-friendly scaffolding to construct temporary walkways for every situation and height.
