Often, lifts for flats are positioned in communal areas such as a stairwell or corridor. It is important though that the lift is in a communal area at every stop – or there is some kind of restriction system (such as key locking).
Consider fire zones in the building too; positioning the lift so it doesn’t create a fire risk is very important to the residents’ safety. This is why stairwells are so frequently used – the fire zone is not opened to another area. By cladding the lift in fire resistant material, and using a fire resistant door, you can create a safe access lift that doesn’t put fire zones at risk.
Remember, with Gartec’s platform lifts for flats, you can use swing doors or telescopic doors to reduce space requirements. You can also have doors on different sides, meaning awkward or unusual spaces, or alternating landings, can be accommodated easily.
