A comprehensive range of access lift solutions

We offer wheelchair platform lifts right across the UK to meet any requirement, from standard to bespoke platform lifts, every type and style is available, even where space is limited.

Our access lifts can be installed in new and existing buildings, complementing and blending into any environment, indoor or outdoors. Whether you’re looking for a disabled lift in a public building, a wheelchair lift in a school or care home, or even a bespoke platform lift to future-proof your home, we have the solution for you.

Our wheelchair platform lifts help building designers and owners to meet the requirements of Part M and BS 8300, as well as helping to meet Equality Act (formerly the DDA) obligations. 

Our service is tailored to our customers. Whether it’s working with an architect to deliver the perfect outdoor lift specification; with a builder to install a disabled access lift to a tight project deadline; or with a building owner to put in a platform lift for disabled visitors, we support each and every one of our customers – from building design to construction and throughout the lifetime of the lift.

With over 150 years of lift expertise, you can rely on us to deliver a high-quality product and the service you expect.
