A8000 Vertical Platform Lift

Screw driven vertical platform lift which can travel up to a maximum height of 13 m with up to six landing doors on any of the three non-machine sides. The A8000 is a flexible and robust lift with an increased rated load of 1000 kg. The larger platform and capacity makes this lift ideal for carrying heavy loads as well as providing wheelchair or disabled access to different floors of a building.

The A8000 is driven by the tried and tested screw and nut drive system which has been utilized to great effect for many years on the successful A5000 range of platform lifts. With its larger capacity and size, but with all the advantages of a platform lift such as a minimal 130 mm floor recess and a reduced headroom above the top floor level of 2400 mm, the A8000 really offers the best of both worlds.

The standard size platform is 1405 x 1980 mm. This can be increased to 1405 x 2480 mm with a 1300 mm wide entrance which covers the Class III health-care sizes for two persons and a bed, as required in many care homes and medical centres. The larger capacity and robust design also lends itself to commercial buildings as well as factories, warehouses and restaurants. As with all lifts of this type, the controls on the platform are hold-to-run, but automatic one-touch call buttons are provided on the landings for ease of operation.
