Vertical Long Travel Applications

Shorts

Our GP and SP Longer Travel Platform Lifts provide a good economic option for the movement of passengers with impaired mobility in commercial and public buildings.

These products consist of an open platform travelling within its own enclosed structure combined with full height entrances (up to 2100mm) at all landings. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, these platform lifts are easy to integrate into a building, as they only need a single load bearing  wall and can be easily waterproofed. Whether fitted indoors or outdoors, the design of these products ensures that installation is quick and on site builders’ works are minimised. The maximum travel is 15m and they can serve up to 8 floors (SP Range).

Short travel 2 stop applications can be dealt with more economically using our GB Range of Platform Lifts.

GP20 Rack and Pinion Platform Lift

Our GP20 Platform Lift uses a smooth wall mounted rack and pinion drive system to move up to 360kg between floors. The electric drive unit sits within the moving car so there is no need for a machine room. Operation is by constant pressure buttons on the platform and single press call on the landings. Our standard models come with set platform dimensions, car, entrances and structure supplied in powder-coated aluminium (in a variety of colours) and manually operated doors.

A wide range of options for the GP20 enables the user to design a more individual bespoke solution. The pit requirement is only 80mm and the headroom as little as 2200mm.
