Our Midilift range provides a simple, cost-effective way to provide DDA access

Manufactured in the UK, the Midilift is a well-known vertical lifting platform lift – combining design versatility and intuitive use, with easy installation and reliable performance, offering maximum flexibility for any public, commercial or domestic building.

With more than 10,000 access lifts installed, the Stannah range of platform lifts has provided easy access for all passengers, wheelchair users and the disabled right across the UK; from health care and education establishments to retail, offices and public buildings. Even as a home lift, when designing to future-proof your house, the Midilift offers a simple cost-effective solution.

A simple, straightforward access lift with hydraulic drive, the Midilift requires no lift shaft and it’s installed within its own structure supported enclosure, meaning minimal building work and quick installation time. Our hydraulic platform lifts require no pit and can be installed internally or externally. The external option means you have the perfect lift solution built for outdoors, able to withstand extreme temperatures and a 5-year anti-corrosion warranty. Our enclosed platform lifts also enable easy access to mezzanine floors or where there are headroom restrictions.

The Midilift range helps to meet the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), Equality Act 2010, Part M of the Building Regulations, Section 4.2 of the Technical Handbook and BS8300:2018. 

With more than 150 years of lift expertise and a UK platform lift manufacturer  - you can rely on Stannah.
