Invalifts overcomes tight space to install lift in listed building prone to power cuts

Invalifts was tasked with overcoming a number of challenges recently when it was called in to install a lift solution as part of a home conversion in a listed building in Leicestershire.

One of the main challenges was the extremely tight space in which to fit the lift. Fully glazed doors were chosen to allow as much light as possible into the area, while the lift was finished in a specific RAL grey colour to match the colour scheme of the interior.

Due to the low ceiling heights, the ground floor of the lift was fitted with a 1900mm high door with a hidden closer.

As the travel of the lift was less than three metres, a half-height door was used at the top landing, which was matched to the height of the upper balustrade, allowing light to flood in.

Due to the likelihood of power cuts in the rural location, the lift was fitted with a UPS to enable continual use of the lift.

The Inva Homelift has an encapsulated chain drive system that is designed to make the unit space efficient and can be produced with a footprint of just 1150mm x 950mm.
