Successful Installation of the new platform stairlift V6s to overcome 3 flights in a public building  

Model: platform stairlift V6s 

Flights: 3 

Type of building: Public building 

Country: UK 

Throughout this case study, Vimec’s partners demonstrate their capability to identify the best solution for each customer, as well as Vimec’s expertise in delivering highly customized and efficient mobility solutions.

The Challenge

The hospital faced an accessibility challenge on its premises, with patients, visitors, and medical personnel needing to overcome 3 flights of stairs to move seamlessly between different levels. They got in touch with our local partner who visited the site to understand the needs and advise on the right solution. The challenge for Vimec was to design and produce a platform stairlift that complies with the hospital’s safety regulations, meets the specific requirements of the three flights, and provides convenient transportation for individuals with mobility limitations.

 The Solution

Understanding the hospital’s unique requirements, Vimec designed and produced the new platform stairlift  V6s specifically tailored to overcome the 3 flights of stairs. The platform stairlift is equipped with advanced safety features to ensure the highest level of security during transportation.

The anthracite grey body of the stairlift with platform, which was recommended by our partner, provided a stylish appearance.  Our local partner, who meticulously planned and executed the installation process, worked closely with the hospital staff to minimize any disruptions to the hospital’s operations.

The Result

Following the installation, the platform stairlift inside the hospital proved to be a game-changer for accessibility.

The V6s platform stairlift’s anthracite grey body not only contributed to the hospital’s modern and sophisticated look but also proved extremely durable. The advanced safety features ensured the utmost protection for individuals during transportation, exceeding the hospital’s safety regulations.

Home elevator EcoVimec with masonry shaft

The Home Lift installed in this private house is an EcoVimec Home lift, which has been chosen to increase comfort and add value to the property. 

The owner chose EcoVimec home lift because it’s electric and environmentally friendly (it has reduced energy consumption and doesn’t use hydraulic oil).

The EcoVimec Home lift has been designed to fit within a masonry shaft, offering a compact and space-saving solution to access multiple floors of the house. The cabin has been designed to be as discreet as possible, with a low profile and modern appearance that complements the property perfectly.

Thanks to its advanced drive system, the lift runs smoothly and quietly. Additionally, emergency stop buttons and safety sensors are included. A door-closing mechanism ensures that doors are closed safely after every use.

The electrical home lift EcoVimec is available in a wide range of models and designs and doesn’t require a machine room, which makes it suitable for homes of all kinds. It can be installed in various types of buildings, including residential complexes, apartment buildings, and shopping malls.

Happy Birthday Vimec

Gartec attended a technical training course at our offices for their technicians.

Last week, we welcomed technicians from Gartec, our partner in the UK, to our premises for a technical training course on our products.

The Gartec team received all the up-to-date information regarding our home lifts, platform lifts and platform stair lifts. During the course, they were also able to see our products in action and test them with their own hands. The technicians now have all the knowledge they need to sell and install our lifts in their country.
