Platform Lifts

ESP can offer platform lifts in a variety of forms, whether it be bespoke passenger lifts or disabled access lifts. These systems typically conform to EN81 and/or the Machinery Directive. Our innovative solutions in this sector, meant that we can offer reduced pit heights and machine-room-less designs. This means, incorporating these systems into existing buildings is simple.

Keble College

Keble College Oxford had a requirement for disabled access from their courtyard to their dining hall. ESP supplied a bespoke lift with a low barrier & door entrance to the courtyard designed to be in keeping with the style of the listed building. The top of the lift has a balustrade capable of withstanding a 475kg load with a purpose fit slim line panel. With the importance of easy maintenance and a constrained area for the lift to be installed, Serapid rigid chain technology specialsits LinkLifts were used to provide a compact and efficient solution.

ESP worked in conjunction with Stannah to provide a full turnkey project including design, fabrication, electrical installation, mechanical installation and commissioning.

Queens College

Queens college Oxford required a disabled access lift to provide access to their new underground library. ESP  designed and installed a unique glass panelled  lift  with key card access and backup emergency power supply.

Although a challenge with restricted access to the lift, ESP were still able to complete the full installation before phase 1 completion of the remodelled library.
