Machinery Directive low pit Lifts can have all the characteristics of a conventional passenger lift with very efficient drive systems for moderate use (40 starts per hour with electric drive). They can include sliding doors and ‘one touch controls’ (if the lift cabin is fully enclosed), but with the benefit of being a pitless lift system (low pit lifts) with low headroom. These low pit lifts can be used in all environments including retail stores, offices, schools and public access, the only limitation of the lift product is the speed, which is limited to 0.15m/s according to a notified body certification.

Our low pit lifts can be specified with a pit as low as 100mm, or you could use a small access ramp and the lift becomes pitless. The majority of our platform lift solutions – including both the hydraulic and traction driven systems – can be supplied without pit or with a low pit.

Due to building regulations and site conditions, the pitless lift option is becoming increasingly popular. Retail shopping centres tend to favour the low pit lifts over a traditional lift because of the ease of installation and integration into their building. A large number of Axess 2 lifts have been installed in various shopping centres across the country including the Manchester Trafford Centre and Liverpool One.

Combine the low pit with a low headroom and you find yourself with an affordable lift solution for most situations, even where space is extremely limited.
