LOW PIT LIFTS, PITLESS LIFTS, LOW HEADROOM LIFTS
Here at Axess 2 Ltd we supply a range of vertical platform lifts which fall into the low pit lifts, low headroom lifts or pitless lifts category under the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, and for a passenger lift in existing buildings EN81-21 with a low pit and or a low headroom.
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 and hydraulic). Vertical platform lifts can be designed and tailored to your requirements with the option of many amenities including 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 vertical 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 vertical rise platform 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 complete lift solutions – including both the hydraulic and MRL traction driven systems – can be supplied without pit or with a low pit and low headroom.
Faster Lift Directive lifts according to En81 -21, it is possible (with derogation process) that a higher speed passenger lift like Galileo with its single phase and battery powered capability can be installed but only in existing building, we can provide the Galileo lift with 2800mm headroom under EN81-1 (please consult Axess 2 for more details)
Due to building restrictions for a deep pit and site conditions, the pitless vertical platform lift (low pit, low headroom) 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 vertical platform lifts have been installed in various buildings including, shopping centres, public buildings and homes.
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.
