The Importance of installing a Platform Lift in your public building:

In the UK alone the Disability Rights Commission are considering in excess of 20,000 cases (as at May 2007) for prosecution against service providers and employers who have not made the necessary adjustments to make their premises accessible to disabled people. Fines of up to 50,000 can be imposed should you be found to be in breach of the Disability Discrimination Act. Added to this, the negative press which can be generated by ignoring this issue should place compliance pretty much at the top of the "to do" list of all service providers, architects and landlords. All over in European Union similar regulations are in place.

Public access for disabled people is an essential part of every public building.. Platform lifts are the most common solution to overcoming barriers to wheelchair users. Available as either a vertical rise platform lift or, where space is limited for this application, as an inclined rail platform lift which follows the contours of the staircase and folds neatly away when not in use. Even "portable" vertical rise units are available for situations where regular, permanent installations are not practical, or simply not always required. Costs are only a fraction of those associated with conventional elevators, and they can be installed quickly and with a minimum of building work or disruption . The majority are suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.
