What is a platform lift?

  • Platform lifts have been designed to provide vertical access, where previously restricted, for disabled users – e.g. staircases.
  • They are mainly used to provide access in domestic, commercial and public places, whether this is between one or two floors or providing access into the entrance of a store externally.
  • Many platform lifts can be used internally or externally and can be fitted in an enclosed or open space – dependent upon customer requirements.
