Vertical Platform Lifts

The need of the less able to circulate within multi floor buildings has of course always been very important. But with the disabled discrimination act (DDA) and the later Equality Act it is also a legal requirement. Vertical platform lifts provide a very simple and economical way of fulfilling this requirement. Built within an enclosed structure a vertical platform lift can be installed into the very tightest of spaces thus providing a fast and economical solution.
