What's Involved?Installing a Commercial Platform Lift

A platform lift is easy to install and a cost-effective alternative to a passenger lift. There are a few things to bear in mind when choosing the best commercial platform lift.

  • An enclosed platform lift requires a pit, typically between 50mm up to 70mm depending on the product. A cabin style platform lift requires a 150mm pit. Alternatively, a ramp can be fitted to the front of the shaft on the ground floor level instead of creating a pit.
  • A platform lift does not require a separate lift shaft as it comes complete with its own self-supporting shaft; no wall fixings are needed.
  • Part M of the Building Regulations requires space on the platform or cabin to be at least 1100mm x 1400mm. Our commercial platform lift including the shaft has an incredibly small footprint (1560mm deep x 1250mm wide).
  • There needs to be at least 1500mm by 1500mm of space in front of the lift and doors need to have a clear opening width of 800mm.
  • All our platform lifts are low headroom lifts, 2.2 metres from the finished floor level or 2.5 for a cabin style platform lift
