Platform Lifts

Platform lifts for wheelchair access are supplied as straight rail platform lifts or platform lifts that negotiate gradients and twists and turns.

Platform lifts are required to either travel in a straight line up a consistent gradient or travel around corners and adapt to changes of gradient.  Whichever need you have, Simply Access can supply and install a cost efficient platform lift solution.  Take a look at the very special features and benefits that come with a very high level of service.

It is unlikely that any platform lift installation is too complex.  Simply Access provide solutions, so even if you think a problem is insurmountable, it probably isn’t.  An example in case is Colbury Nursing Home.  They’d gone for many years being unable to find a solution to open up access to a further two bedrooms; it was very tight.  However, with some minor structural improvements to the wall, the SLIM incline platform lift (pictured above) was perfect for the tight turn and stores very neatly.  The control box was also hidden away.

Take a look at our comprehensive brochures and specifications, listed by platform lift type.
