Platform lifts for indoor and outdoor use

We offer you various types of platform lifts so you can move comfortably and effortlessly - without expensive renovations.

The customized platform lifts can be easily retrofitted - whether indoors or outdoors, on straight or curved stairs. This makes the property easily accessible for everyone - even on steep slopes.

The optimal solution for straight and curved stairs

We offer you a platform lift for straight and curved stairs. Both versions are flexibly installable and take up little space thanks to the automatically folding platform. They fit wonderfully into the surroundings, allowing for use in private homes as well as public buildings. In particular, our stair lift for curved stairs is one of the narrowest platform lifts, making it ideal for very narrow stairs.

When is the use of a platform lift useful?

- For mobility restrictions
- For accessing sloped areas
- In multi-story buildings without elevators
- For elderly people with walking difficulties
- In public facilities for accessibility
- For temporary injuries or illnesses

How does an inclined platform lift work?

The lift is powered by a special cable drive system, with its motor installed at the upper end of the rail guide outside the staircase. This saves a lot of space, as the staircase remains largely clear and can be used freely by pedestrians. Operating through an external drive and a carriage unit pulled by a cable, similar to a cable car, allows for the realization of very long curved lift systems. And with direct connection to the power grid, the Artira is independent of battery power when in use.

The Artira platform lift is specifically designed for indoor and outdoor use and is also available with a rain cover and folding seat. Operation is very simple and is done by means of push buttons on the control unit on a spiral cable during the ride. From the call stations, the lift can also be summoned and sent away using push buttons, as well as opening or closing the platform.

What are the advantages of a platform lift?

 Accessibility SIA500 platform

Our lifts comply with the SIA 500 standard

The SIA 500 standard for barrier-free buildings defines how the postulate of equality is to be fulfilled in the field of building construction. The aim of this standard is to ensure independent access in the built environment for all people, especially those with mobility or sensory impairments, as well as for people carrying luggage, strollers, or bulky objects. The requirements for barrier-free access vary depending on the type and use of the building. Therefore, there is a division into three categories: publicly accessible buildings, buildings with apartments, and buildings with workplaces.

You can find more information about the SIA 500 standard here.

We have the perfect solution for you.

A platform stairlift is, as the name suggests, equipped with a platform. This platform can, if necessary, be used with a wheelchair, or the platform can be equipped with a folding seat so that the platform stairlift can also be used as a seated stairlift. A seated stairlift only has a seating option. A seated stairlift is often used for seniors who have difficulty climbing stairs. Discover seated stairlifts at our subsidiary here.

Platform lifts are equipped with flat access ramps on both sides, which allow for easy entry and exit with a wheelchair. Seated lifts can be rotated at the landing without the footrest rotating, ensuring safe and easy boarding and disembarking.
