Emergency Evacuation Passenger Lift Rebuilds Access in Restoration of the Chapel, Royal Victoria Country Park

Emergency Evacuation Passenger Lift Rebuilds Access in Restoration of the Chapel, Royal Victoria Country Park

Stannah Lifts

Situated in an existing stairwell, the lift had to be installed within Historic England guidelines: the guide brackets could not be fitted to the Chapel’s historic walls, so the lift was supplied and fitted within Stannah’s FX structure—a cost-efficient, shaft-within-a-shaft solution that overcomes such obstacles. This BS 9999-compliant evacuation lift plays a vital role in an evacuation strategy by a designated warden for t
FlexStep at Pharmacy

FlexStep at Pharmacy

Liftup A/S

Some buildings have enough space for a ramp that comply with the slope requirements or a platform lift that can stand next to the staircase – the challenge can be that many accessibility solutions will impair the existing architecture of the building, and most want to preserve the existing aesthetics of the building, despite of the accessibility requirements. The FlexStep, the fixed staircase, and the repossess at the entrance to the pharmacy are built on top of the pharmacy’s original stone staircase, and they are designed with the steps, handrails and repos in identical wood, so the solution is consistent.

Their design supports an efficient blueprint, also minimising the structural impact on the building. This core also doubles as a fire-fighting shaft, comprising a firefighting stair, mechanically ventilated firefighting lobby and a firefighting lift.
FlexStep at Nordkraft

FlexStep at Nordkraft

Liftup A/S

Nordkraft is an old power station converted into a modern culture centre in Aalborg (Denmark). It goes without saying that the architecture is special as a major part of the previous power station has been maintained and now makes out the rustic framework for culture to prosper. In order to meet the legal requirements for accessibility into public buildings, the builder and Aalborg Community requested the installation of a platform lift. Colour and materials are according the specifications, and Liftup designed a special “outdoor” version as the staircase is situated close to an exit and without insulation.
FlexStep at St. Aidan's School in the UK

FlexStep at St. Aidan's School in the UK

Liftup A/S

The hallways are broad and the traffic is heavy at the stairs at St. Aidan's Primary School in Scotland, UK. To create a coherent and functional solution to meet those needs a FlexStep lifting platform and an identical fixed staircase were put into production. The steps are covered with carpet like the rest of the floors at the school - a small feature that makes the FlexStep an invisible state of the art product. The school needed the broad staircases as well so a fixed staircase was built next to the FlexStep in the exact same design as the FlexStep.
London Victoria Tube Station

London Victoria Tube Station

Eurosafe Solutions Ltd

A Noracon Travelling Gantry was installed to the full width and length of the North Ticket Hall suspended from aluminium monorails concealed within the ceiling. The Gantry was designed to travel parallel to the escalators beneath utilising a rope driven trolley which removed the requirement for any electrical connections. To enable the platform to travel the full length. part of the gantry was designed to become detached from the main section, allowing it to be “jettisoned” at the point where the new lift obstructs travel. The two sections become independent allowing the gantry to travel the remaining distance.

Loft ladders solutions for a truss roof

Loft ladders solutions for a truss roof

Premier Loft Ladders Ltd

Truss roof rafters and ceiling joists are typically spaced either 400mm, 450mm or 600mm apart. Given that the joist is normally 50mm wide, this gives a fairly small opening width for your loft hatch and ladder. However, there are still a wide variety of options to consider. For example, space saving concertina loft ladders, are easy to operate, providing robust and durable access to an attic. Made-to-measure folding wooden loft ladders, such as the new Quadro, are available for widths of 550mm and offer minimal protrusion in the loft space above. Visit our website for more information.
