Optimum 200 climbs a mountain
City living provides many benefits with access to work places, shops, restaurants and theatres so therefore basement apartments are particularly popular as a result in many areas of London.
However if you are unable to manage a few steps as a result of an illness or disability then leaving this type of property can be the equivalent of climbing Everest.
Basement properties are typically accessed via an external set of steps, usually around 10, with very little in the way of space and planning laws that require flexible solutions that are both easy on the eye and practical.
Ability Lifts Ltd and Optimum 200 demonstrated these qualities recently when approached to provide a solution for such a problem in Chelsea.
Working closely with the client and the client’s builder, Ability Lifts were able to install their Optimum 200 wheelchair platform stairlift into a situation that had seemed impossible.
First of all Ability Lifts had to show that they could meet the client’s expectations and this involved a detailed survey of the existing area and the creation of a plan to enable the work to be undertaken, this would be followed by lengthy negotiation to ensure that the local building control were happy with the design.
A further final survey was then undertaken to ensure that Optimum 200 would be designed to fit neatly into newly created surroundings followed by the installation which took less than one day to complete.
Full wheelchair access is now possible, the stylish Optimum 200 fits like a glove, matches the colour scheme of the surrounding fittings and automatically folds back against the wall when not in use.
Optimum 200 is further enhanced by it’s external treatment to prevent decay along with a battery operation that will allow use in the event of a power cut. A cover is also provided to ensure that the lift remains dry and ready for use.
