Platform lifts are incredibly versatile due to the technology, structure and regulations, and comply with Part M and the Equality Act.
They can be installed inside or outside a building, hold passengers and goods, provide access and prevent manual handling. Floors can be protected by using ramps, and fixing points can be just on stairs, or just on the floor. With all the machinery and shaft included and tucked away, we can do almost anything with them!
Overall, platform lifts are governed by the machinery directive, not the lift directive, making it simple to commission and regulate platform lifts in different ways.
