Platform lift at the New Horizon Church
New Horizon Church has just found a new home at an existing building in Langley Mill, about 10 miles North West of Nottingham. As a part of the move to the new premises, they contacted Ability Lifts to enquire about a suitable lift to enable access to the first floor.
After first reviewing the architect’s drawings, and then making a site visit, Ability Lifts recommended the Optimum 100 platform lift as the ideal solution. The lift requires a footprint of just 1250mm x 1560mm, whilst providing a fully Part M compliant disabled access sized platform of 1120mm x 1480mm.
As the lift was to become an integral part of the building, the client wanted to maximise the amount of light passing into the area, so the lift was designed with glazed doors and shaft glazing on the ground floor. In lieu of a pit underneath the lift structure, a small aluminium ramp was placed at the foot of the lift to aid wheelchair access.
The lift was also provided with an optional fire park system, so when the building alarm system activated, it would automatically return to the ground floor and turn itself off to prevent further use. In addition to this, the client wanted to restrict access to a specific number of users, so a key control system was incorporated into the lift.
The Optimum 100 lift is completely self-supporting, so there was no need to form supporting walls or provide any lifting beams or scaffolding. This enabled an extremely efficient and smooth fitting of the lift, taking just two days for a complete installation.
The platform lift comes with a fantastic guarantee including 12 months parts and labour warranty, a 5 year warranty on the motor and gearbox and 10 year warranty on the drive chains, meaning the lift will offer trouble free service for years to come.
