Types of Platform Lifts

Our range of platform lifts is designed to cater to various needs and environments, ensuring accessibility for everyone.

  • Step Lift:

    Ideal for small height differences, these compact lifts are perfect for steps or split levels, offering an easy solution for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility.

  • Vertical Platform Lift:

    Versatile and suitable for multiple floors, these lifts are a great alternative in spaces where traditional passenger lifts can't be installed.

  • Cabin Platform Lift:

    Merging conventional lift features with platform lift accessibility, these enclosed lifts provide a private, traditional lift experience, accommodating wheelchairs and mobility aids.

  • Low Pit Lift:

    Designed for buildings with limited space for lift pits or overheads, requiring minimal structural changes, making them ideal for retrofitting.

  • Inclined Platform Lift:

    Following the course of a staircase, these lifts fit well in environments where vertical lifts are impractical, suitable for both straight and curved staircases.

Common Applications of Platform Lifts

Platform lifts play a crucial role in numerous settings, enhancing accessibility and convenience.

  • Commercial Buildings:

    In offices, shopping centres, and public buildings, they ensure that all visitors and staff can move freely, regardless of mobility limitations.

  • Educational Institutions:

    Schools and universities use platform lifts to guarantee that students and staff with disabilities have equal access to facilities.

  • Healthcare Facilities:

    Hospitals and care homes utilise platform lifts to move patients safely and comfortably, addressing various mobility needs.

    In private homes, they provide an elegant and practical solution for individuals with mobility challenges, enhancing independence and quality of life.

Other Types of Lifts We Install

Passenger Lifts

The most common type of lift, passenger lifts are used to transport people from floor to floor. Nowadays, passenger lifts are used in all sorts of buildings throughout every industry and are seen as the standard type of lift.


Dumbwaiters are small, enclosed lifts used to transport items between floors within a building. Multi-story buildings, such as restaurants, hospitals, and hotels often incorporate dumbwaiters to help employees move supplies, dishes and laundry from floor to floor.

Service Lifts

Typically used in commercial and industrial buildings, service lifts are designed to carry heavy loads that help businesses carry out everyday operations more efficiently. If it’s cargo that needs transporting from floor to floor, it’s service lifts that’ll do the job.

Glass Lifts

Glass lifts are just another form of passenger lifts. As the name suggests, glass lifts feature large panes of tempered glass that make for a nicer, more aesthetic-looking lift compared to your average steel passenger lift.

Car Lifts

Making use of any vertical space within a parking lot or garage, car lifts are designed to carry the heavy weight of a vehicle and unlike their name suggests, car lifts are built to accommodate vans and heavier vehicles as well as cars.
