Disabled lifts are found in any building where the design involves stairs or wheelchair inaccessible areas; disabled lifts make these areas accessible. They generally consist of a platform lift which is used alongside stairways and are for short travel distances. Disabled lifts have become more and more common since the DDA regulations have been passed. All buildings must be accessible to all people regardless of ability. Disabled lifts, as shown in these pictures, provide a low-cost solution for buildings with short flights of stairs.
Disabled lifts come as stair lifts or vertical platform lifts located beside the stairs. Easily accessibly handrails and a non-slip floor surface are some of the safety features to prevent falls. The disabled lifts installed by ACE Lifts are extremely flexible and can be adapted to meet whatever your building layout may be. All ACE Lifts products are open protocol, meaning that they work with any other product or software and can be maintained by any lift company.
