Frequently asked questions
Also known as platform lifts, access lifts provide a safe and convenient means of moving between different building levels for individuals with mobility challenges. Stannah Lifts supplies domestic, commercial and public access lifts, and our sister company, Stannah, helps with mobility in the home.
Access lifts are governed by the Machinery Directive regulations (not the Lift Directive) which means they are restricted to a speed of 0.15m/s, around 20 seconds per floor.
A DDA-compliant lift is a wheelchair lift that conforms to the new Equality Act. The act requires all public buildings to have wheelchair access and references Part M or Section 4.2 to give more specific guidance on disabled access lift requirements.
Prices start from £19,000, for our vertical platform lifts, which includes the lift's supply and installation, plus a 2-year maintenance and repair package.
When designing a building, the main advantage of an access lift is that it requires only a small pit and headroom. A ramp can also be used if it’s impossible to provide a pit
If a lift is going to be used by wheelchair users for public or commercial access – the floor space of a lift needs to accommodate this. Usually, this means a size of at least 1100mm x 1400mm. Home lifts can be made smaller if the size of a wheelchair is known.
We’ll work with your builder to advise on the necessary preparatory works. Once ready for your lift, our experienced lift installers will attend the site and complete the fitting and handover. As every lift is built to the unique site specification, please tell us about your project as soon as possible.
It’s best to engage with us as early as possible to meet your project delivery dates. The typical lead time for the Midilift PL is faster than our old Stannah Midilift range, but please speak with us for current lead times.
If you’re an Architect, we have a range of technical data available to download to help ensure you can fit the right lift into your project or speak to us, and we’ll talk you through the product options.
