Platform Lifts

Combining the privacy of an elevator and the convenience and functionality of a stairlift, platform lifts make an excellent addition to any residential or commercial space. They are a versatile solution for anyone with mobility issues, allowing them to move easily between floors. Designed to accommodate wheelchairs, mobility scooters or people who may have difficulty navigating stairs, platform lifts can help to create an inclusive and accessible environment for all.

At Fenston & Cromwell, we pride ourselves on providing an expert installation service for platform lifts for residential and commercial spaces. Dedicated to enhancing accessibility, our team brings a wealth of expertise to every installation, ensuring that our platform lifts not only meet stringent safety standards but also integrate seamlessly with the existing architectural features of the building. As every client has their own unique requirements, we offer tailored solutions that will perfectly match their needs.

Enhance Accessibility and Inclusivity with F&C’s Platform Lifts

One of the key advantages of platform lifts for homes is the range of customisation options, which means they can be seamlessly integrated into various architectural designs. Whether you have a compact home or a sprawling residential complex, they can be tailored to meet the available space. This adaptability makes them ideal for retrofitting existing structures or incorporating them into new construction projects.

Beyond residential applications, platform lifts find valuable use in commercial settings, creating barrier-free environments, and aligning with modern accessibility standards and regulations.

Create a more inclusive and accessible environment

Tailored for households with diverse needs, platform lifts are an inclusive solution for three-generation families and for anyone who uses a wheelchair. These lifts empower individuals with physical disabilities or limited mobility to navigate between different floors independently, significantly improving their accessibility within the home and in turn their daily lives.

Enhance your property value

Investing in a platform lift can contribute to the overall value of your property, making it an attractive proposition for potential buyers and enhancing the long-term return on your investment. The installation of a platform lift for home use reflects a commitment to accessibility and modern living, adding a valuable and desirable feature to your property.

Choose from various design options

As our platform lifts come in a range of stylish design options, you can rest assured that we will be able to supply a lift that will not only serve a functional purpose but also complement your aesthetics. With various designs and finishes available, our lifts can blend harmoniously with your living space, adding both practicality and visual appeal.

Prioritise safety and security

Equipped with an array of safety features, our residential platform lifts prioritise user well-being. Emergency stop buttons and other safety mechanisms guarantee a secure and worry-free experience for people of all ages, reinforcing F&C’s commitment to providing a safe and reliable mobility solution within the home.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Platform Lift

With dozens of platform lifts on the market, choosing the right option may feel quite daunting. Here are a number of important factors to consider during your decision-making process.

1. Lift type

There are various platform lifts available today, with hydraulic and traction lifts dominating the market. For this reason, you need to carefully consider your mobility needs, space requirements and aesthetic preferences to find the lift that will best suit your home.

2. Lift size

Measure the available space within your property to determine the ideal lift size. The lift must be able to accommodate the number of passengers and/or mobility devices you wish to transport.

3. Safety and security

As user safety and security is non-negotiable, you should only consider platform lifts that come with essential safety features, such as emergency stop buttons, and start and stop functions. Moreover, you need to ensure they comply with UK and European safety standards.

4. Installation and maintenance

Please note, installing and maintaining a platform lift is sometimes a complex process. For this reason, you should enquire about the ease of installation and maintenance before making a final decision. In addition, remember to ask whether the lift will require regular inspections and servicing.

5. Cost

The cost of installing a platform lift will depend on its features and functionalities as well as any customisations you wish to add. At Fenston & Cromwell, our team will be ready to offer expert advice to help you find a platform lift that suits your budget and functional requirements.
