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 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.

Small Passenger Lift in Townhouse in Mayfair

We were approached by Interiors with Art, a London based design and construction company as they were looking to incorporate a lift into one of their projects in Mayfair. We attended site to measure and provide a quotation for a small passenger lift that could service all 4 floors of the house. As with many of the Victorian townhouses found in the Mayfair area this building had been split into flats. Mayfair is an affluent area of West London and is situated just to the East of Hyde Park and West of the City of London. Lifts in townhouses in the Mayfair and Park Lane area are becoming more and more common as building and flat owners are looking to future proof their properties and our client was no different. In the current market, a building without a lift can be the reason a flat doesn't sell at the asking price or even sell at all. 

The architect wanted the small passenger lift to fit into the space that had been left behind after the dumbwaiter was removed. The lift would also have to have adjacent entries therefore would limit the interior cabin dimensions even more. The lift's interior measures 630 mm x 725 mm with photocells placed on the two sides of entry - this was to maximise the space inside the lift for the client. The total travel of the lift is over 10 metres across 4 floors and the maximum load of the lift is 300kg. The lift has 600mm wide swing landing doors with opaque glass windows and finished in the client's chosen RAL colour. The lift's interior was finished in polished stainless steel giving the feel that the lift was much larger than it actually was. The floor of the lift was fitted with the same marble tiling as the ground floor so there was a seamless transition from hallway to lift.

Outdoor Stairlift in Kingswear, Devon

In January 2017 we were approached by a private client in Kingswear, Devon who was looking to future-proof their home and provide disabled access not only to themselves but to friends as well. Similar to many properties across the Devon coastline, this home was situated on the side of a hill with car parking several metres below the entrance to the house. After discussion with the client we decided that the best option would be to install an outdoor stairlift. Other options such as a platform lift would require too much builders work and wouldn't be an affordable option while there was too little space to fit an inclined platform lift without expanding the width of the steps.

The total travel of the outdoor stairlift is over 23 metres spread across 43 steps from the road below to the front door. Even though the route the lift travels is a complicated one with many twists and turns, the outdoor stairlift was installed in one day. Due to the lift's location and proximity to the sea, all metal components were made out of marine-grade stainless steel to prevent any rust or corrosion forming in the future. The client was very happy with the installation and has a beautiful view of the River Dart when they use the outdoor stairlift.

Glass Home Lift in St John’s Wood, London

We were approached by a private client in St John's Wood, Central London, who wanted a glass home lift running across 5 floors of his house. St John's Wood is a largely residential area of London, adjacent to Regent's Park and home of Lord's cricket ground. It is an extremely affluent district of London with large detached properties contrary to London's usual townhouse homes.  With this in mind the client wanted a lift that would live up to his expectations and seamlessly blend into the aesthetics of his home.

After attending the site to measure the lift shaft we submitted the drawings and discussed with the client his vision and exactly what he wanted in regards to style and finishes. He made it clear that he wanted the lift to look very modern and be completed in a full glass structure with glass doors. We fitted an EP Elfo with cabin dimensions of 950mm x 1000mm which travelled a total distance of 10.5 metres across 5 floors. The lift was finished with panoramic glass doors that were 800mm wide creating a spacious cabin interior. The glass finish for both the structure and doors meant that the lift matched the client's modern and luxurious specifications.

Inclined Platform Lift in Dartmouth

We were approached by a group of clients that wanted to find a way to get from the road to their house some 44 metres up a steep incline. An inclined platform lift would be an easy way to get to their homes as well as transport shopping and other heavy items to and from the houses. The lift would provide access for 3 homes that shared the same access route up the side of a hill in Dartmouth, Devon.

The only viable option for this particular challenge was to install an inclined platform lift however we had never installed anything this long before. Before we started we needed to photograph every step (all 87!) so we could produce a quality drawing for both the clients and the manufacturer. Due to the location’s proximity to the sea, both the lift and the complex supporting structure would have to be made out of the right materials to prevent any rusting or corrosion.

We chose to install a Hiro inclined platform lift, with the lift and the structure built using marine-grade stainless steel so that the system wouldn’t rust or weaken overtime. The lift was installed within 1 week and the clients are very happy.

Glass Lift in Luxury Flats in Weymouth

We were approached by a private client in Weymouth who had converted a seaside house into large modern residential apartments spread across 3 floors. Seadown is in the Preston area of Weymouth and only a short walk to Overcombe beach. Many newly built or renovated properties by the sea such as this one have cutting edge designs and have to be built to very high specifications so that they can be easily sold. With this in mind many developers and building contractors are looking to future proof these types of homes as potential buyers expect these expensive properties to have a lift. Whether it is luxury apartments or a fully detached house, a small platform lift can add value to a home. It can be the difference between a property that gets snapped up straightaway and one that stays on the market for months. Our client had built his new property, Seadown, in this exact frame of mind and asked us to measure and design a lift for him as he had already built a lift shaft. For smaller properties that have half a dozen or so flats a conventional passenger lift can take up too much room which takes away valuable space in the flats. Our smaller platform lifts need less space both above and below the lift as well as having less moving parts so lower maintenance costs.

After measuring the lift shaft and submitting a drawing to the client we got the go ahead to order and then install the lift in the flats. We fitted an EP Elfo which has a total travel distance of 6000mm across the 3 floors with an internal cabin of 1280mm x 1000mm. The lift was fitted with 5 automatic self closing doors across the 3 floors - the 800mm-wide doors were finished with smoked glass to match the modern decor of the property. The lift was fitted in under 2 weeks and now makes sure that the flats are accessible for all residents. It also makes it easier for residents to transport heavy goods to their flats and even shopping.

Home Lift in External Glass Lift Shaft in Branksome Park

We were approached by a private client in the Branksome Park area of Poole who wanted to install a home lift with an external structure attached to the side of his house. The lift would help both him and his wife travelling floor to floor but would also future proof his home. He wanted a modern style to match the newly built house with glass being a prominent feature of his overall idea.

We measured and designed a lift and external structure that would be adjacent to the house with 3 points of entry all on the same side of the lift shaft. We fitted an EP Elfo with cabin dimensions of 1100mm x 830mm which travelled a distance of over 6 metres across 3 floors in its own lift shaft. The steel structure was painted dark grey and was then finished with smoked glass on the 3 external sides. The presence of a majority glass lift structure matched the modern aesthetics of the building and the addition of the smoked effect lends itself to privacy when using the lift. The lift was fitted with 3 triple glazed swing landing doors so that both the house and the lift shaft remained warm with no draughts or loss of heat. To ensure that the lift was warm and comfortable to use even in the winter months or at night we fitted a small heater so that the lift shaft would be a pleasant temperature.
