Pneumatic Home Elevator in Bournemouth

We were approached by a couple from Bournemouth, Dorset who were refurbishing their home. They thought that while they were carrying out the refurbishment they should make their home more accessible. Similar to many properties in the area, the house is spread across 3 floors. The addition of a lift can really open up a home and future-proof it against anything life can throw. In this instance, the couple had seen photos of a pneumatic home elevator on our website and thought that was the best option for them. They wanted the lift to travel from the hallway on the ground floor to the first floor landing. The lift would then continue into the spare room which is situated on the second floor. 

The client chose the one person model of the pneumatic home elevator which has a diameter of 750mm. The lift was installed by two of our engineers in under a week. The lift travels just under 6 metres across the 3 floors with a rated load of 205kg. The structure is painted steel with curved perspex panels. The advantage that a pneumatic home elevator has over a more traditional lift is that they take up less space and can easily be added to a corner of a room. In addition the circular lift shaft can act a sun trap and allow light to flood throughout the house. The lift features a 520mm curved door on each floor. 

The client uses the lift to even more the vacuum cleaner  throughout the house and take the washing upstairs. They also use the lift to move small items of furniture as well as bags and suitcases.

Lift in a Residential Building, Kings Lodge, Reading

We were approached by a developer who was looking to install a lift in a residential building he had recently refurbished, Kings Lodge,  on Kings Road, in Reading. The Kings Lodge building has a number of luxury flats across 5 floors in central Reading. The client was looking for a lift to supply access to all floors of the building. The client also wanted to use the lift to provide a way of transporting heavier items throughout the building when the new residents move in. Before we arrived on site the builder had already created a purpose built lift shaft running through the centre of the building. We inspected the lift shaft and completed a survey, taking critical measurements to create technical drawings for the client.

We discussed with the available options with the client and after a couple of weeks came up with a detailed plan for the lift. The client accepted our technical drawings and we installed the lift as to the plan.  This platform lift in a residential building travels over 12 metres across the 5 floors with the cabin interior measuring 1100mm x 1400mm. The lift has a rated load of 400kg (5 persons) so it can be used to move luggage and some items of furniture throughout the building when the new residents move in. The platform lift has stainless steel automatic doors on each floor. The lift was finished with a mirror back wall in order to create a spacious airy feel in the lift.

Outdoor Platform Lift in Minehead, Somerset

We were approached by a couple in Minehead, Somerset who were looking to make their home more accessible. As with many of our customers, they didn't want to move from their lovely home and downsize to a smaller house such as a bungalow. In addition the house is situated on the hillside above Minehead and the view from their home is fantastic. They had lived in the area for many years and their family loved to come visit on holiday therefore they really wanted to stay put. They were looking for an outdoor platform lift that would not only make it easier to access their home but also help move heavy objects such as bins from the house to the garage and driveway.

Our team met with the couple to discuss the different options available and to perform a survey of the front of the house. We designed and installed the outdoor platform lift rising from outside the garage to the patio area adjacent to the house's porch. This meant that the second garage could still be used as the lift does not require a pit. The lift travels just under 3 metres floor to floor with a platform measuring 1100mm x 1400mm, allowing plenty of room to move bins and other heavy items. The outdoor platform lift is made out of 316L stainless steel making sure it doesn't rust or corrode over time and ensures the lift is in working order for several years. The side panels are made from hardened glass providing a spacious feel and modern look whilst being completely solid.

The client said that she is "thrilled with the lift and visiting folks are very impressed, especially the Tesco delivery man!"

Inclined Wheelchair Platform Lift in Poole, Dorset

We were approached by a couple from Poole who were looking to make their home more accessible due to unforeseen circumstances. Poole is located on the South coast and similar to many seaside towns and villages, the land undulates around the coastline. The client's home was no different with the driveway and garage situated at the street level then their house situated at the top of the hill. The garden then sat between the two with a paved pathway leading from the driveway all the way up to the front door. After several discussions between the clients and our team we decided that an inclined wheelchair platform lift would be the best option. The main issue that became immediately apparent is how the pathway winds up the side of the garden. The pathway includes several twists and turns with some points narrower than others.

We attended site and completed a digital survey, mapping the exact dimensions of every single step. The survey revealed that the total distance the inclined wheelchair platform lift would travel would be over 13 metres and a total rise of 5 metres. This is by no means our longest inclined platform lift but it posed a unique challenge due to the number of turns and the narrowness of the pathway. We managed to fit an inclined wheelchair platform lift with a platform measuring 750mm x 1000mm. All materials of the lift are made out of 316 stainless steel to prevent any rust or corrosion meaning that the lift can stand up to any adverse weather conditions.

After completing the project the client had this to say, "I wanted to thank you and your team for all your help, hard work and knowledge, your service has been amazing. Your engineers in particular were unbelievably helpful.

"You enabled us to carry on living in our lovely house."

Small Residential Lift in Witchampton

We were approached by a couple who lived in Witchampton, just North of Wimborne, because they were looking to have a small residential lift installed in their cottage. The couple were looking to make their cottage more accessible and provide another access route to the upstairs of their home that would be close to the master bedroom. The most feasible option was a small residential lift to the right of the front door - the major sticking point for the project was that the cottage had sloping ceilings and so reduced headroom on the first floor.

We designed and installed a small residential lift that was situated inside the cottage travelling 2550mm from beside the front door to the first floor landing, close to the master bedroom. Due to the reduced space and lack of headroom in the cottage the lift had a cabin that measured 850mm x 720mm and  height that measured 1100mm. The small residential lift was finished in a painted stainless steel structure with glass panels. The glass panels and white painted structure allowed in as much light as possible to dissipate from the window above the lift shaft on the first floor. We fitted the lift with glass swing landing doors so that they took up as little space as possible as well as letting as much light flood through the house.

Indoor House Lift in Chichester, West Sussex

We were approached by a private client in Chichester who was looking to incorporate an indoor house lift within their home. Chichester is a cathedral city and the county town of West Sussex, situated on the Southern edge of the South Downs National park close to the popular seaside town of Bognor Regis. As with many of our clients they were looking to future-proof home - lifts are becoming more common in the home and can even be a necessity in order to sell a house in some areas. The client wanted an indoor house lift that matched the modern aesthetics of their home and would like stylish against the light and airy appearance throughout the house.

We installed the indoor house lift in its own purpose built shaft that connected the ground floor hall and the first floor landing. The lift's cabin measures 900mm x 12500mm. The lift travels a total distance of 2800mm across 2 floors with lift entry on one side and has a safe working load of 300kg. The house lift was finished with white doors with dark glass panels to match the modern appearance of the client's house. The client then painted the cabin in a stylish monochrome design with white and black horizontal stripes.

Residential Glass Lift in Bosham, West Sussex

We were approached by a private client near Chichester in West Sussex because they were looking to fit a residential glass lift to the outside of their new home. The house had recently been built as part of a small development of half a dozen homes near to the Solent. They were looking to adapt their new home to make it more wheelchair accessible and chose to install a residential glass lift to the outside of the house. The client wanted a lift that was in keeping with the surrounding village's style but also matched the house's modern aesthetics.

We designed and installed the residential glass lift in an external white structure in the the client's back garden - the lift was fitted to the outside wall with doors from the lounge on the ground floor to the landing on the first floor. The lift's interior measures 1000mm x 1200mm giving surplus room for the client to use the lift in their wheelchair. The lift has a total travel of 3300mm across the two floors with entry to the lift only on one side and a safe working load of up to 400kg. The lift was finished with opaque glass to add privacy from the neighbouring houses.

Home Platform Lift in Ringwood, Hampshire

We were approached by a couple who had recently built their new home in Ringwood, Hampshire and were looking for a lift at the front of their property. Ringwood is a market town located on the Dorset-Hampshire border adjacent to the New Forest. The couple had built a lift shaft to the front of the property and were looking for the right home platform lift. This is when they got in touch with us to discuss the possible options available to them. They were looking for a lift that would match the modern aesthetics of their home and be able to stand up to day-to-day usage. After meeting with the couple and discussing their vision for the lift, our team created technical drawings of what the lift would look like and how it would fit in the shaft. After reviewing the plans, the client liked the design of the lift and gave us the go ahead to order the lift.

We designed and installed a home platform lift in the purpose built lift shaft. The lift travels nearly 3 metres from the hallway by the front door on the ground floor to the living-dining area on the first floor. The home platform lift has cabin dimensions of 770mm x 1060mm and a rated load of 300kg.  The lift was fitted with 750mm wide swing landing doors with glass windows to allow lots of light into the shaft and to give the lift a spacious feel.

Home Platform Lift in Whitecliff, Poole

We were approached by a private client who had already built a lift shaft next to his staircase and was now looking to have a lift installed. We went to the site in Whitecliff, Poole to measure the internal structure and discuss his vision and exactly what he was looking for. Whitecliff is a sought after area and overlooks both Whitecliff Park as well as Poole Harbour. The majority of the houses around the park are very modern with glass being a prominent feature across the whole Whitecliff-Lilliput-Sandbanks area. He wanted a lift that would match the aesthetics of his home and so wanted a style that was light, airy as well as being modern.

We fitted an EP Elfo within the prebuilt lift shaft with the home lift travelling a total distance of 5970mm across 3 floors with a maximum load of 300kg. The internal cabin measures 850mm x 1100mm with 800mm glass swing doors on each floor. The door structure was painted white to match the colour of the lift shaft with the glass within the doors specially made to include a wave-like pattern. On the upper floor there was glass on 3 ides of the lift to allow as much natural light as possible into the lift shaft. The lift was fitted with adjacent entry on 2 sides. This home lift was fitted within 2 weeks.

Outdoor Garden Lift in Parkstone

We were approached by a private client in Parkstone, Dorset who had recently moved into a renovated home that was situated on the side of a hill with views overlooking Poole and Poole Harbour.  They were looking to install some sort of outdoor garden lift as they needed a way of carrying heavy items and groceries from their garage up to the front door. They also wanted something that would act as a way of future-proofing their home.

After meeting with the clients we decided that the best option would be to install an inclined platform lift going from the garage to the level of the front door. A traditional platform lift would require a lot of builders work and wouldn't be economically the best option for the project. The outdoor garden lift has a total distance travelled of over 9 metres with a mid-point landing due to the topography of the land.
