Platform Lifts

Sheridan Lifts offer an extensive range of platform lifts offering complete customisation to suit your specifications. If you already have a platform lift you may be interested in our lift maintenance packages.

Our innovative SL7000 platform lifts are reliable, low maintenance systems and increase accessibility in a convenient and effective way. Their sleek, ergonomic design means less space is required than a regular lift system, so if you’re short of space, or a lift is outside your budget, a platform lift could be a perfect solution.

Our lifts comply with the Machine Directive and M-Building regulations. Using the ultra-reliable and low-maintenance, self-sustained nut and screw drive with emergency battery backup, the SL7000 can be specified with up to 6 stops and a lifting height of 13m.
