We were approached by a client that wanted to find a way to get from the road to their house some 44 metres up a steep incline. A lift would be an easy way to get to their home as well as transport shopping and other items to and from the house.
The only viable option for this would be 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 client 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 client is very happy it.
