5 steps to installing a platform lift

Aritco 7000 Platform Lift

Looking to make your property more accessible for wheelchair users and those with mobility related disabilities? Platform lifts are easy to install in homes and businesses alike, providing greater access for people who are unable to walk or transfer from their wheelchair without assistance.

A platform lift or ‘access lift’ has a platform which is used to carry passengers from A to B. To make sure they travel safely, the lift often incorporates sidewalls and can either be operated by the user themselves or a carer.

You’re only 5 simple steps away from a new lift:

Step 1 – contact Level Access Lifts

Step 3 – create site specific drawings

Here at Level Lifts, as part of our price we include detailed site specific lift drawings to ensure that all of your needs and expectations are met before we start making your lift – this eliminates guesswork and makes the process of installing access lifts simple.

Our drawings include essential information regarding dimensions and loadings – if there’s anything you’re not happy about, let us know and we can make changes.

Step 4 – arrange site check

Before access lifts can be installed, we need to carry out a site assessment to ensure that it’s safe.

Our site checks don’t delay installation, they simply guarantee that your lift is delivered, installed and completed in a safe and responsible manner.

When we visit your site, we check that the measurements we have are correct and ensure appropriate provision is in place for installing your lift.

Step 5 – install the lift

Level Lifts are the experts when it comes to installing lifts, so you can rest assured that you’re in capable hands. It usually takes us 2-3 days to install most of our access lifts but for lifts that offer greater travel heights, it can take slightly longer.

Many of our lifts are built from the bottom up and don’t need scaffolding because they have a modular structure.
