We live in an age that is all about equality. And that’s the way it should be! No matter your race, gender, sexual preference or physical capabilities the world and all it has to offer should be readily available for all.
Around one in 20 children are disabled, one in seven working age adults and almost one in two people over state-pension age in the UK. The Equality Act 2010 states that there is a requirement to make reasonable changes to the built environment, such as making changes to the structure of a building to improve access for those with physical impairments.
Access to buildings for those who are disabled or have certain physical limitations is one such area in which we, as a lift company, are particularly interested in. Sheridan Lifts is a lift company that, as part of our extensive lift installation service, is adept in designing and installing platform lifts.
Platform lifts are specifically designed for wheelchair users and are suitable solutions for where it’s not feasible to modify an existing lift, there is no room for a conventional lift or ramp. Platform lifts can be installed in both commercial buildings and in homes to provide suitable access.
Our Glide-Hi platform lifts are British built and comply with the Machine Directive and part M-Building regulations. We use the ultra-reliable, low maintenance and self-sustained nut and screw drive and our platform lifts can be specified with up to 6 stops and a lift of 10m.
