Note that aluminum flooring is not available for platform size 900 x 1040mm.

Control Panel:

The control panel is delivered with a light box, with an acrylic glass that is lit with LED light. The destination buttons, emergency stop button, alarm button, maximum weight and number of persons are all located on the control panel. Options such as auto dialler and landing directors can also be located on the control panel if required. Parts around the light box and aluminium panel are painted in grey, which give the impression of aluminium.

The standard designation buttons are 32mm diameter and come with braille as standard. As an additional option the designation button can be increased to an extra-large 50mm diameter to provide enhanced accessibility.

Door Control:


The door control is either placed on the door frame of each landing door and/or remote from the lift for external control.

Door control on door frame

Door control placed on the door frame of the lift.

For our platform lift there is always a place on the door frame for the faceplate.

Call button

The call button comes with a background lit frame which indicates the status of the lift.

  • Green light indicates that the lift is at your floor.
  • Lit only on the floor where the platform is at the moment.
  • Red light indicates that the lift is occupied.
  • The flashing light indicates that the safety circuit is broken, e.g. that the emergency button is pressed, the door is open on another floor for more than one minute, the door is blocked or the safety bar is pressed down. The flashing light can also be activated by a smoke alarm, more information is then available in the service memory.

The same call button is used when the door control is placed on the door frame, remotely or as a radio controlled call button.
