Optimum 100 is a great fit for Boston Castle
The Grade II listed building named Boston Castle, in Boston Park was constructed as a hunting lodge in 1775.
After being derelict and boarded-up for many years, work began in August 2011 to restore the castle and create a new entrance foyer to allow access to different levels of the castle including the viewing platform revealing the panoramas across the valleys of the Rivers Rother and Don.
To ensure access was available for any person with restricted mobility a platform lift was required, as the lift had to fit into the limited space available (between two main beams) it was decided that only the Optimum 100 platform lift would fit, also as the Optimum 100 can be glazed on all or any of the four sides it was decided that glazing to the outer edge along with the glazed entrance doors would be needed to keep the disruption to light to a minimum.
The Optimum 100 was supplied as a complete structure including the ceiling and did not require load bearing walls, scaffolding or lifting beams for installation, the drive motor of only .55kw is up to 75% more energy efficient than other systems, the high build quality, flexible and dependable guided chain drive system is ideally suited to the building, as is the complete structure.
