Complying with all the building regulations, laws and acts can be complicated – but when it comes to accessibility and equality, Gartec have you covered.
Originally, DDA lifts were solely for wheelchair users to access top floors. The Equality Act means that lifts can be used by any building user. Technically, a DDA Lift does not exist as the regulations have changed – but you may often hear this phrase in relation to organising a wheelchair suitable lift.
What is an Equality Act Lift?
An Equality Act lift is a lift that will allow any user (within practical reason) to enter, use and exit the lift. This could be someone in an electric chair, a person with a buggy or child, an elderly person with a walking frame, or an ambulant person.
