Our low pit lifts can have all the characteristics of a conventional passenger lift with very efficient drive systems. They can include sliding doors and ‘one touch controls’ (if the lift cabin is fully enclosed), but with the benefit of being a pit less 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.
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 pit less. The majority of our machinery directive platform lifts solutions – including both the hydraulic and traction driven systems – can be supplied without pit or with a low pit.
Our low pit lifts could eliminate the need for expensive excavation costs, by not having to construct a traditional lift pit, sometimes up to 2000mm below floor level.
Due to building regulations and site conditions, the pit less lift option is becoming increasingly popular in the retail sector due to the ease of installation and integration. 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
EN81-21 Passenger Lifts (Low pit/low headroom)
In existing buildings, where a lift shaft already exists, it is now possible to install an Axess 2 passenger lift with reduced headroom or a low pit. We offer a range of passenger lifts that are designed to comply with EN81-21.
You will need to demonstrate the reason why you cannot accommodate the requirements of the standard EN 81-20:2020. This might include existing drains or services, Underground tunnels, low roofs in listed buildings, planning restrictions, occupies space above or below and various other reasons. Derogation is required but we make the application process very simple.
