We provide platform lift solutions for a wide range of requirements, whether vertical, inclined or short rise. All of our lifts meet the requirements of the relative directive. The vertical units, and the inclined units will meet the requirements of the proposed standards. All of our units have been designed to ensure that safety is of paramount importance.

Access for ALL people

Here at Ability Lifts, we believe that the phrase �disabled� is discriminatory and should be banned. There are millions of �less abled� people including mothers with prams and elderly people with shopping bags, and older people who cannot climb the stairs.

We offer solutions to these difficulties - our philosophy is �Access for all people�. So specify Ability Lifts - all of the units being supplied in compliance with the Machinery Directive MD 98/37/EC and we understand the problems surrounding less abled people.
