Watford Community Housing Trust, Hertfordshire

Our APL3 platform lift provided the perfect solution for this housing association to enable people with disabilities to reach the main reception area. Previously there had been a stair riser with limited access when the area was busy and not as reliable. Although only rising three steps, the platform lift enables dignified and easy access.

Secure Government Building, London

The unique External APL6 Prestige (Heritage Style) open platform lift was used for DDA lift access, light goods lift access and bin lift access at a secure government building in London. The APL6 is a perfect choice as it is visually very discreet, being almost imperceptible at street level when parked. Additionally the lift’s functions were fully linked in to the building’s security control systems.

Public Library, Central London

During the refurbishment of a library in London, a DDA compliant APL4 platform lift was installed to allow access to a split-level ground floor and a newly constructed mezzanine level. The APL4 was specified as it could be glazed on all four sides to give an open aspect appearance and the heavy-duty 500kg lift capacity would allow the lift to be used regularly to move large quantities of heavy books around the building.
