Platform Lifts Providing Access

Jun 25, 2008
Thankfully there is a growing number buildings in the UK that are served with disabled access lifts. These lifts provide a great resource for people that use a wheelchair and people with other disabilities. The range of lifts is vast with lifts available for almost all types of spaces. So whether you would like access for a stairwell, a shaft or another type of space then you are likely to be able to find a lift that will provide access in all situations.

Many lift companies provide bespoke solutions to people that need lifts in all different situations. This can mean that people with disabilities can have access to floors that are above ground floor in almost all types of building and there is no excuse for not having adequate disabled access. There is of course a range of different lifts for different situations.

So what types of lifts are there out there and what kind of situations do you need each different lift for? The platform stair lift is a type of lift that is ideal for the stairs in a home or office building. The platform lift can be adapted to fit straight stairways, curved stairways or squared stairways. These types of lift are generally quite easy to set up and they are usually a positive option as they enable wheelchair users and disabled people to share the stairway with able bodied people.

The stair lift can generally be stored out of the way when it is out of use and as a result can be an extremely good option for people that want to share the stairway. As with all lifts it is extremely safe and is well known for being simple to operate. It call also be set up both inside and outside.

Disabled access is becoming increasingly important for businesses and companies that want to deliver their services to disabled users and it has the additional positive effect of demonstrating to your customers that you value all members of society and cater for their needs. By putting a lift in you will make your services available to an enormous segment of the market.

This will make the services that you offer accessible to the estimated nine million disabled people in the UK. This could see you welcome in a segment of the market that has a combined spending power of fifty billion pounds per year. The benefit of opening your doors to this demographic is therefore extremely noticeable.

There are a number of laws in place that encourage people to consider provide disabled access to patrons. There are also sadly thousands of cases that take place against people that do not offer disabled access. This can be avoided by simply providing disabled access. The fines involved are not worth considering and as a result staying in line with the laws is essential.

The majority of the companies that provide and install disabled lifts are excellent. They have often installed thousands of lifts and can provide a solution for many thousand more. The best types of companies to look at are those that provide access to both home users and businesses these often have a broad range of experience and can install lifts in a vast range of different scenarios.
