What are step lifts?

It is most likely that if you own or work in a building with a lot of traffic, then you would benefit from a step lift. I bet you weren’t expecting to be told that so early on, were you? The truth is, they are a device that can benefit anyone and everyone at any time. They can be a fantastic way of promoting inclusivity for your business whilst allowing anyone the opportunity to access any floor in your building.

Sure, at Level Lifts we are going to encourage the use of step lifts for many buildings, but this is with good reason! We feel that all buildings can benefit from these smart designs, and that they should be a mainstay for the long term.

This blog from Level Lifts will give you the low down on all things step lifts so you can have a better informed idea on whether you should look to add this to your facility.

Features of a step lift

So let’s get into what a step lift actually is, shall we? They are ways of transporting people from one floor to another in a simple and convenient manner. They are usually placed alongside a set of steps as a useful alternative and can be designed to make life easier for those who need to ascend or descend floors in a building. They are designed to be compact with a small footprint, making them easy enough to be spotted without standing out too much.

These kinds of structures have to be designed robustly to ensure that they are safe to use at all times, which is why they are made with the toughest materials depending on your preference. These include heavy duty glass to ensure that it can withstand a large amount of impact before smashing, allowing you to keep your step lift running safely at all times. The stainless steel that is used to provide the base of the lift allows for a heavy maximum load of a minimum of 400kg on our devices.
