external platform liftThe Optimum 150 External Platform Lift

The Optimum 150 is the ultimate space saving platform lift enclosure, situated externally with the entrances in the internal wall. We will provide you with a fully weatherproofed, secure and insulated external structure fitted with the Optimum 100 platform lift inside. We construct for you a substantial steel structure that is anchored to the wall and finished in insulated Microrib Kingspan to a colour of your choice. Generally all we ask is that your builder provides the entrance apertures and the concrete plinth.

What’s a platform lift?

  • Primarily designed to give access to people who have difficulty using a staircase.
  • Frequently used in domestic, commercial and public places. The lifts usually serve between 2, or more floor levels.
  • A fully enclosed vertical platform lift is designed specifically for wheelchair users travelling in an upward or downward direction.

Why choose an external lift?

  • Save space within your building by installing an external lift - that’ll be securely sealed to the outside of your premises.
  • Extra ease of access – no need for ramps or additional expenditure to take place outside of your building, as the external lift allows even easier access for the less able.
