A-Type disability platform lifts available from Platform Lift Company
A-Type disability platform lifts from Platform Lift Company offer a cost effective solution to disability access where more than two metres of vertical travel are required.
The A-Type is a disability compliant platform lift, and through identifying the features of this type of lift, customers can assess its suitability to access needs.
Features of A-Type disability platform lifts include:
- These platform lifts can be installed directly to the floor, meaning there is no pit required and no expensive costs for excavation
- The control system is incorporated within the shaft, meaning there is no need for a separate machine room
- The absence of a lift car helps to save costs, although the platform is restricted to 0.3m/s travel. Extra safety measures are essential with this type of design
- There is minimal head room, compared to a lift with an enclosed car
A-Type disabled platform lifts are supplied with a free standing metal shaft structure with aluminium sandwich infill panels, allowing for a variety of installation locations.
When the lift is at the top the underside of the platform and lift mechanics can be seen, and the shaft can be made in the colour of choice. A-Type disability platform lifts work best off a 3-phase power to achieve a staged start and stop.
