What Are Platform Lifts?

Platform Lifts are primarily designed to improve accessibility in private or public buildings or even the home. As well as this, the Platform Lifts that we supply at Level Access Lifts are suitable for use indoors and outdoors which in essence makes them extremely versatile and reliable.

Our Platform Lifts are designed to provide access for all with the needs of those with disabilities specifically in mind. Platform Lifts provide a fantastic alternative for those with limited mobility; they essentially eliminate the need to negotiate stairs which can result in serious injury.

Here at Level Lifts, we can help those with disabilities to access services that are on various floor levels but most importantly, our Platform Lifts ensure that nobody is discriminated against. Installing Platform Lifts will provide those with impaired mobility ample opportunity to reach their destination with ease, whilst maintaining dignity and independence.

Transportation can be difficult, especially when you’re in a wheelchair, however, our Platform Lifts are available in several styles and sizes to make life easier. Our lifts are designed to assist passengers but also suit your environment and the space that you have available.

Put simply, a Platform Lift combines attributes of various other lifts, take the privacy of the elevator and pair this up with the simplicity of a machine creating a far more affordable option. Depending on which of our lifts you choose, you’re sure to discover a solution for transporting anywhere between 1 wheelchair user, right the way up to a group of people, making them highly dependable and practical.

How Do Platform Lifts Work?

If you’re considering installing a Platform Lift to your building, there are countless reasons why you should, and one of these is linked to the ease of operation. Platform Lifts work in a way that is quick and easy, essentially removing the need to queue and struggle, negotiating the staircase.

Each of the Platform Lifts that we supply at Level Lifts is designed to be unique and can enhance accessibility but they operate slightly differently from one another. A Platform Lift is guaranteed to grant anatomy and restores a sense of independence, allowing those with disabilities to feel more included.

With Open Platform Lifts and most Vertical Lifts, the walls don’t move- only the platform itself does. The platform either raises or lowers and requires continual pressure on the buttons in order to operate. On the outside of the Open Platform Lift, there is a single push button that is used to call the lift.

Depending on which Platform Lift you choose, they are likely to be controlled using electrical inputs and single touch buttons but they will work using one of the following drive systems:

Hydraulic Drive System

Sometimes, Platform Lifts are attached to a hydraulic ram and hydraulic fluid is pushed into the ram by a motor / pump to enable the lift to ascend or descend.

Screw and Nut Drive System

Through the length of the lift shaft, there is a steel screw pole which has a drive nut attached to it. This drive nut is attached to a motor that turns it, determining the direction of the lift.

Chain Drive System

A motor and gearbox are used to turn the drive shaft and this causes the chains to rotate, either pushing or pulling the platform lift.

How Much Are Platform Lifts?

When it comes to purchasing Platform Lifts from Level Lifts, it can be difficult to put a price on them, especially when there are so many different factors to take into account.

The cost of Platform Lifts is determined by several factors including the cost of the lift itself and the cost of any building work that might be required.

Generally, the Platform Lift cost is influenced by:

  • Travel

Depending on how many floors the lift will cover, the cost of Platform Lifts varies. The overall distance from the top floor to the bottom floor can impact on the cost of the Platform Lift; the further the lift travels, the more expensive it will be.

  • Entrances

How many entrances will there be to the lift? This can be linked closely to the number of floors that the lift will reach. Lifts with multiple entrances will cost more both in terms of labour and materials.

  • Glazing

Platform Lifts are available in an assortment of styles, so there’s no reason why you cannot find one that enhances your building but with this, may come an extra cost due to the materials used.

  • Colours

The manufacturing costs vary depending on colours and sizes, be sure to bear this in mind when comparing the prices of Platform Lifts!

In addition to this, you need to consider the cost of ownership of Platform Lifts, the running costs, maintenance and repair costs. All of our Platform Lifts are priced suitably for an array of budget requirements and provided with a guarantee to ensure that you benefit from reliable Platform Lifts that are highly reliable and affordable to run.

How often does a Platform Lift need Servicing?

Once you have purchased your new platform lift, you are going to want to make sure it is in the best possible condition at all times! This is why we ensure, as part of our comprehensive service, we will come out and service your lift at a frequency that gives you peace of mind.

This is usually annually or every 6 months, depending on your preference. By regularly having your lift serviced you will be safe in the knowledge that it is safe for use, and no faults will occur leading to accident and injury. More regular servicing is usually recommended in high traffic areas that will see the lift used more frequently.
