Many architects and building managers are now opting to install the more cost effective machinery directive lifts when standard elevators are not appropriate. As machinery directive lifts are classified as ‘machines’ rather than ‘lifts’, they require reduced headroom and pit depth. This makes them an incredibly cost-effective option.
Machinery Directive Lifts can be installed in buildings as an alternative to a ramp or for changes between levels, typically between 2-6 floors. They provide a means by which people with mobility issues, buggies and wheelchairs can access a building.
At Premier Lift Group, we take a personal and attentive approach to machinery directive lift design and engineering. With decades of experience and expertise, our team offers industry-leading lift solutions tailored to your building’s needs.
Our specialist designers have gained great insights into the challenges facing impaired mobility users. We have incorporated user feedback and suggestions into the design of our machinery directive lifts.
Providing access to those with mobility issues is not just practical, it’s also a legal requirement for many building types. At Premier Lift Group, you’ll be glad to know that we’re experts in compliance and building regulations.
Our range of machinery directive lifts can be tailored to perfectly match the image and identity of any building.
From stylish surfaces to energy efficient LED platform lights, you’ll find a beautiful design to match your property.
