highly useful installations
Lifts are highly useful installations within a variety of circumstances, but one of their primary purposes is undoubtedly helping less able-bodied people to move between the floors of a building. At Axess2, we take the provision of disabled access very seriously, and we therefore view our disabled lift portfolio as one of our most important collections. Perhaps most commonly relied upon to allow wheelchair users to navigate otherwise problematic flights of stairs, our indoor and outdoor access step lifts can be utilised to overcome any mobility concern, and our bespoke design service can provide these elevators in numerous forms to meet any conceivable requirement.
What Do Our Incline & Step Lifts Offer?
Perhaps most importantly, our step lifts allow you to ensure that your building is fully compliant with the demands of the Disability Discrimination Act and Part M of the Building Regulations. However, there are a lot of diverse options on offer, including through-floor wheelchair lifts, stair or step lifts, and even outdoor elevators to allow easy entry into any sort of building. All of these lifts are extremely low maintenance, so you can depend on your access solution being as efficient as possible.
Despite being a functional means of assisting those with limited mobility, our step lifts are by no means unsightly, and they come in a wide array of finishes and styles to complement any environment. Some step lifts require the passenger to leave their wheelchair, which is certainly a drawback, but because we’re able to fit our elevators with enclosed cabins and sliding doors, this need not be an insurmountable obstacle. The controls on our lifts are always simple to use too, so increasing the independence of a disabled person has never been more straightforward.
Low rise lifts are usually found on the outside of a building and are useful shortcuts to lift a person or wheelchair into a premise. Sometimes used to accompany or replace an existing staircase, these lifts essentially bypass the issue of differing ground levels and are convenient, easy to use and safe.
Increasingly popular as disabled lifts, these ‘normal’ passenger lifts simply allow a platform to rise up and down a tube, and are regular installations within domestic environments. Ordinarily controlled by the user to allow independence, these medium rise lifts are comfortable and cost-effective.
A Dogs Life
Hi Axess 2, some history of our lift’s use may be of interest. My wife’s aged father was living with us since his wife (my mother-in-law) died in 2008. We had a stair lift installed in 2008 but this was becoming unreliable. In 2014, with extension works on-going, the decision was taken to remove the stair lift and install a proper lift instead. The Hydraulic 250 was fully installed by January 2015 and safety certification obtained April 2015. Unfortunately, my father-in-law had a stroke and passed away in February 2015. Thus, he never did get to use the lift. The lift was useful for either my wife or I when moving suitcases for holidays or when either of us had back problems.
We had two rescue Labradors, one black and one yellow, both suffering from joint problems. The black Lab, Henry, died a year ago (Apr 2019) aged 14. He was 11 ½ when we rescued him and, after 6 months of walking up and down the stairs, one day I went to use the lift, opened the door and Henry pushed past me and sat down. From then on until he died he used the lift without any encouragement.
Zack was 10 ½ when he was rescued 2 weeks prior to Henry joining us. Zack objected to the lift and continued using the stairs until December last year. His arthritis was quite bad and although going up the stairs was fine he really needed assistance whenever coming down. 4 ½ months ago at bedtime, he sat by the lift in the kitchen and would not venture into the hall for the stairs. He weighs (weighed) 12 kgs more than Henry and it was obvious he could not turn once inside the lift. He allowed me to turn him around and walk him backwards into the lift. He has never looked back! Every morning when it’s time to go down, he goes to the stairs, looks down and promptly moved across to the lift where he waits for me to reverse him inside. The picture attached was taking a few days after he started using the lift in December last year. He has a mat to stop his paws from slipping and a towel to sit on. Zack had his 14th birthday 2 weeks ago. I travel with him. He’s prone to use his nose at the door while moving which causes the ‘safety stop’ to activate. The lift is now a big part of Zack’s daily routine!
