Gartec Platform Lifts for Schools, Colleges and Education

May 2018

Installing an access or wheelchair lift in an educational facility is a legal requirement when over multiple floors – for example, building regulations Part M and the Equality Act.

But when it comes to lifts for schools, it is also vital to understand safety features, requirements for use and (of course) budget, as well as these regulations.

With over 500 schools using Gartec platform lifts, we have probably worked on a project similar to yours – meaning we can make school access easy for you.

Lifts for Schools: Platform Lift Features

General Features

Gartec school lifts are open platform lifts – this means you stand on an L shaped platform and travel up and down the shaft, and when you look up you can see all the way to the top.

Up to 6 stops
Doors on any 2 sides at each floor
No oil pit, machine room or belts
Single touch call buttons, and hold to run buttons to move
3 day installation with no building works
Installed in its own shaft (or in your existing shaft if required)
Very small footprint

Consider how the lift will be used (frequently? for equipment and people?) and who it is for (wheelchairs only? all students?) to make sure you get the right lift.

Safety Features

Gartec School Lifts come as standard with fantastic safety features:

Safety edge – stops lift when pressure applied to edge strips
Cannot get underneath platform
Emergency stop button
Intercom, phone or autodialler to communicate in emergency
Emergency battery lowering system
Optional key locking – only those with a key can call and open the lift
Shaft lighting as standard for visibility
24 hour breakdown line

Brighton Home Adapted for Accessibility & Sustainability

March 2018

After finding her 4 storey dream home, Kyla wanted to adapt for wheelchair access and sustainability.

THE CHALLENGE

Kyla, an environmentally conscious homeowner in Brighton, wanted to adapt her new home for access, and improve the sustainability of her perfect property:

“The project was to renovate a four storey Victorian terraced home to make it fully wheelchair accessible for myself”

Kyla got in touch with Bright Green Homes LLP, who were the design-manage-build company for the renovations, and Cityzen Architects, who focus on sustainable design.

Alex Hunt, the Project Manager from Bright Green Homes, commented:

“We were approached by Kyla to advise on making her new home more energy efficient and sustainable as well as fully accessible. When Kyla found a 4 storey period property in the heart of Brighton she was determined we would make it her dream house”

THE LIFT

Bright Green Homes contacted Gartec to enquire about a platform lift. Matt Akerman, our Home Lift Manager, recommended our Aritco 6000 lift as it had all the features needed for accessibility and sustainability:

Wheelchair suitable platform sizes
No large machinery or pit space – small footprint
2 day installation to fit schedule
Energy efficient – less than a kettle to run
Alex, the Project Manager, commented:

“We enjoyed working with Gartec; once we had ironed out a few wrinkles we were able to have everything prepared for Gartec to fit the lift on time & on budget. Gartec have always worked hard to provide great service”

The lift was a vital addition and meant Kyla could fully enjoy the house:

“If the lift wasn’t here, I wouldn’t be here!”

THE INSTALLATIONS

Bright Green Homes managed the project from start to finish – from re-designing the garden to removing structural walls, creating the void for the lift, installing new stairs, windows, electrics, 2 bathrooms & heating, rainwater harvesting system, flooring, and fire alarm/smoke curtain system. Kyla commented:

“Alex from Bright Green Homes and I worked together incredibly well. Good communication is essential for a successful project and to renovating a home stress free!”

Gartec fitted the lift in 2 days around all the other works going on – Kyla gave us her thoughts:

“The installation was smooth and efficient. When the lift was installed, it was the most complete part of the house so really brought it together. The orientation was meant to be length wise, but Matt Akerman problem solved effectively.”

THE RESULTS

The house looks fantastic and incorporates sustainable living and accessible design in a stylish and modern way. Kyla said:

“I value social, inclusive spaces, and the house is an excellent example. Having the lift makes it possible for me to enjoy the character of a Victorian home, with square footage you wouldn’t find otherwise”

Key management from Bright Green Homes brought it all together at the right times – Matt Akerman, Home Lift Manager, made a final comment:

“The lift blends in really well and we’re proud to be part of the project. Bright Green Homes were great to work with and have created the home Kyla wanted in a tight space – quite an achievement!”
