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!"
