Make your premises accessible to everyone with a disabled lift
With the introduction of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), service providers are required to make reasonable adjustments to the physical features of their premises so that everyone regardless of disability, age or gender can have access to a building. In practice, this has meant that many premises- including offices, shops and restaurants - have had to install ramps and widen doorways, along with installing a platform lift to allow disabled access. Even if there is only a short staircase a wheelchair lift or ramp is still required.
Make sure your disability lift complies with the DDA
The Disability Rights Commission has concluded that most common physical barrier to access by a wheelchair user to a building is the stairs. Some premises can simply use a ramp. However, all too often this is impractical because of limited space or because there are too many changes of level. In which case, building owners need to install a platform lift. A short rise lift of this sort provides access for wheelchair users and prams alike. By fitting the appropriate platform lift you will be complying with the Disablity Discrimination Act.
Short rise lifts and enclosed disability lifts from DDA Lifts
At DDA Lifts, we offer a comprehensive range of platform lifts, from short rise to 15M travel. Each of our disability lifts is built to the highest standards. All of our vertical platform lifts, be they an enclosed wheelchair lift or a open platform lift, are CE marked and conform to BS6440 and Part M of the Building Regulations . In addition, a disability lift from DDA Lifts is manufactured to ISO 9001 quality standards. So you can rest assured that an enclosed platform lift from us and our short rise lifts fully comply with DDA guidelines. We offers several different types of disability lift to choose from including an enclosed wheelchair lift or an open platform lift for under two meters. We can provide a wheelchair lift with lifting heights of between 250mm and 15 M so we are sure to have a solution for DDA requirements for your premises.
An open platform lift and short rise lifts for small level changes
If you are looking for a small platform lift to provide wheelchair lift access for a short change in levels of between 250mm and 2M we have several short rise lifts to choose from. At DDA Lifts we can provide either open or enclosed short rise lifts to provide disability lift access. Selecting the right disabled lift for your premises will depend upon how much space you have for your wheelchair lift. At DDA Lifts we have found that these short rise lifts can often be placed next to the short staircase to provide a side-by-side disabled lift access solution. Even if you are refurbishing an existing building and space is very limited we can still provide an open platform lift.
Use an enclosed disability lift for higher level changes
For disabled lift access for between 2M and 15 M we offer an enclosed cabin platform lift as well as the more traditional platform lift with its own enclosure. Unlike our short rise lifts, these disabled lifts travel a much greater distance and so must be enclosed . These platform lifts can also be installed in a shaft ‘by others’. Once again these wheelchair lifts can be near the stairwell to provide one central access point between floors.
