Staircase Applications

Shorts

Shorts GA Inclined Platform Lifts are ideal for commercial and public buildings where space is at a premium and a more conventional vertical lift cannot be installed.

The platform is large enough to take a passenger in a wheelchair up and down a flight of stairs using a dual rail arrangement mounted alongside the stairs, either directly to the wall or on purpose designed stanchions. This means there are minimal structural modifications required to the building and the upper of the two rails is smooth and can be used as a handrail. Power to the lift can be via direct single phase mains power or rechargeable battery.

The GA drive arrangement is a rack and pinion system with the motor being part of the platform assembly. The platform and access ramps automatically fold up on either landing when the lift is not in use, ensuring that access to the stairs is not restricted. The platform automatically opens when required for use. Platform mounted safety barriers fold and unfold automatically to ensure the user travels in safety. Each platform is fitted with a series of safety detection edges to detect obstructions when in use and in the event bring the lift to a safe stop.

Key switch operated constant pressure call stations are fixed at the top, bottom or intermediate landings and can be supplied wireless to minimise builders’ works. The platform contains its own self-contained operating panel.

The GA20 is the product for straight staircases, while the GA30 has been developed specially for curved staircases, varying inclines or multiple landings.

Both products are suitable for both internal and external application.
