Saint Malachy’s Church

 

Premier Platform Lifts has installed an 8m, 3 floor platform lift with 60 minute fire rating at Saint Malachy’s Church in Belfast.

Premier was contacted by Consarc Conservation, part of the Consarc Design Group with a requirement for a 8m travel, 3 floor platform lift with 60 minute fire-rated doors. The lift was to be part of the full scale restoration program that was started in January 2008 with completion in 2009.

Brief

Consarc had already selected our A-Type “Rucsac” model from our website as they could see from the typical drawings that its unique design with the guide frames on the narrow side of the platform, which enables installation in a very confined location, was ideal for what they were encountering at the church.

The A-Type is typical of our products and our most popular model. It dispensed with the standard requirements for a lift such as a pit and structural work, making it the perfect choice for Saint Malachy’s as this was a project that specified no alterations to the building other that what was strictly necessary. The only requirement we had was for an opening to be made on the upper levels and the lift was mounted directly onto the floor.

All that was left was for the lift to be commissioned and handed over to Saint Malachy’s. It is now in regular use and ensures that full wheelchair access is possible throughout the church.
