LR Platform Lift

The Wessex Low Rise (LR) Platform Lifts (Step Lifts) are the result of 30 years of design innovations. They are robust, flexible and stylish. As a result of the powder coated finish and superior build materials they are suitable for interior and exterior use. These low rise lifts will lift the user up to a maximum threshold height of 1000 mm. The maximum safe working load (user and wheelchair) is 300 kg (47 stone). Installing a steplift (platform lift) alongside existing steps provides access for wheelchair users. As a result this helps you comply with disability access laws for public buildings. Most importantly, an LR platform lift will open up your building for wheelchair users.

The Wessex LR Step Lifts have safety edges around the platform. These stop the lift if there is an object in its path. Although it is mains powered there is a back up battery. This, combined with manual emergency lowering controls, mean that you will not be stuck, even in a power cut.

Platform/Step Lifts are an excellent alternative to ramps. They make very efficient use of the available space and are generally more suitable than ramps inside buildings.

    A lot of companies boast a 24/7 service and maintenance offering, but few actually deliver. I can honestly say that Obam do that and we had our stairlift back up and running within hours of calling them
