The scissor lift is so called because of its scissor mechanism which raises a single wheelchair or standing passenger up to a maximum of 1.6 metres. It provides access to mezzanine floors or other areas not at street level, where a straight or curved rail platform lift wouldn’t suit.
The scissor lift can be installed inside or outside buildings, within wall shafts or supplied with its own enclosures. All enclosures meet the necessary safety standards and styling can suit the environment it is in, as shown in the example below. Here, the enclosure is ornate ironwork which matches the surrounding Tudor style residences. All controls are constant pressure for a gliding, smooth feel and are enabled by means of a removable key key-switch.
