The Aritco 7000 Range
The Aritco 7000 platform lift is our most versatile lift in the commercial range, with installation possible in almost any location and for a range of requirements and uses.
All Aritco platform lifts use patented screw and nut technology, and all the same resilient parts.
There are 3 models of the Aritco 7000 lift, each with different features for alternative uses. All the models are available in a range of platform sizes, from 1 person to wheelchair and carer size for Equality Act compliance.
Platform Lift Operation and Mechanics
None of the models require head fixing, machine room or oil pits, and we don’t need an existing shaft to install. The lifts are installed in 2-3 days without major building works or scaffolding, making it easy to fit around a renovation or build schedule.
The lifts all use patented screw and nut technology; a motor drives a nut up and down a threaded bar that runs the vertical length of the lift. The L-shaped platform is the only part that moves during travel, and all the machinery is hidden at the rear of the lift.
Due to regulations the button must be pressed continuously during travel, or the lift will stop.
Key Features and Safety
All the lifts come with a safety edge running around the entire platform. When pressed, this stops the lift – as does the emergency stop button on the platform.
The alarm button on the platform is either audible from the exterior, or linked to an intercom or autodialler to connect to preset numbers to call for help.
The mirror in the lift provides safety for wheelchair users in the smaller lift sizes. When exiting backwards, the user can see what is behind them.
In a power failure, the lift has emergency battery backup and takes the user to the nearest (or ground) floor for safe exit.
Finally, the screw and nut technology means no drop in event of failure – the angle of the thread means the lift just stays where it is.
Common Uses and Environments
The 7000 is used widely in public and private commercial environments:
