Purley – Outdoor Platform Lift

We were approached by a private client in Purley upon the recommendation from a couple from a previous project (South Croydon). The project was similar to the one in South Croydon as the client did not have an access route for a wheelchair or electric buggy from the pavement level to the front door level. The client decided that a lift would provide the most suitable access as a ramp would be too steep. We worked with a local builder to remove the existing hedge which lied between the driveway and existing path. This would create the space for the new lift without taking up drive way space.

The lift travels just over 1.5 metres and features a 1100mm x 1400mm platform. This platform size coupled with the lift's 400kg rated load means that it can convey even the heaviest of electric buggies as well as be used for moving heavy items such as appliances, suitcases and bins in and out of the property. The lift also features 900mm wide frameless glass gates on both the top landing and platform. We also included a handheld remote control for the client, this allows the client to be able to call the lift up or down before they have to go outside. The lift is made for external applications with all surfaces either in stainless steel or anodised aluminium. This means that the lift will not rust and will provide continued use over the years.
