Starbucks

Step Free Access for High Street Cafe

Requirement: Starbucks approached the Platform Lift Company, to supply a DDA-compliant lift to its first-floor café in Solihull. Starbucks wanted to enhance its level of customer service by providing access for all.

Solution: The Vertical platform lift is factory pre-assembled, ensuring rapid installation, with minimum disruption and reduced building works. It runs on the proven Screw and Nut drive and can accommodate up to five stops at nine metres. Starbucks decided this would provide an ideal access solution.

Benefits: Wheelchair users, families with pushchairs and other less mobile people now have step-free access to the first-floor café. The installation of the Vertical platform lift means the Starbucks café is now fully compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).
