Midilift SL/GL Platform Lift

The Stannah Midilift platform lift offers a simple, cost effective way to provide access for all within public, commercial or domestic buildings. Our latest Midilift platform lift combines design versatility and intuitive use with ease of installation and reliable performance.

Our access lifts can be installed in new and existing buildings, complementing and blending into any environment. Predominantly used as wheelchair lifts or disabled lifts, these lifts require no pit, are installed in their own structure and can travel up to 7 metres. The half height gate option, for up to 3m travels, is ideal for enabling access to mezzanine floors or where there are headroom restrictions.

Manufactured by us in the UK these lifts are installed across all market sectors, including education, retail, offices, public buildings and private residences. Our proven hydraulic drive and nationwide service ensures our lifts run smoothly and efficiently for years, adding value to any building.
