Given the Stair Width and Floor Level measurements, we can calculate all the manufacturing specifications for the Sesame System and give measurements for the excavation work.
The pit depth increases if you would like a stainless steel skirt around the lift mechanism that is visible when the lift is at a rise. The depth is therefore in proportion to the height of the stairs (the total rise plus 150mm). An example of the stainless steel skirt can be seen on our Chulmleigh Community College Lift. The alternative scrunch or roller shutter skirt has been used at The Institute of Civil Engineers Example where the pit depth is just 370mm plus the specified lift plate cladding thickness. Architects can view both examples on our Sesame System Examples page.
Our engineering team can work to accommodate any specific architects design requirements as each system is bespoke to the location. We are confident we can offer you a solution to provide wheelchair access over steps at a standard rise of 1.5 meters, however we can provide higher rise lifts to special design.
The Sesame wheelchair lift skeleton can be clad in whatever material the architect desires, to allow the system to fit concealed into it’s surroundings.
