The Bespoke Outdoor Wheelchair Lift Specialists

Hidden from passers by

Lyfthaus is Britain’s most celebrated designer, manufacturer and intsaller of basement lightwell lifts on the market today. Over the past 10 years we have honed in on this craft as one of our specialisms, and we are proud to have installed our bespoke lightwell lifts in some of the most iconic and beautiful contemporary and heritage buildings across Britain. We even frequently perform installations in many central London boroughs, setting a high planning consent precedent.

Each basement scissor lift is born out of a bespoke design, allowing for the finished product to meld into its specific environment both on a practical and aesthetic level. In particular, we always strive to make our bespoke lightwell lifts blend into the architectural landscape, making them virtually invisible to passers by. 

The art of elevation

Our experts will take design cues from the immediate architecture to replicate.  Railings, balustrades, finials, materials and finishes can all be replicated in the design of your lightwell lift platform, this can include: cast and wrought ironworks, castings such as fancy finials and spearheads, stonework flooring, steel railings in all shapes and sizes, timberwork and all paint finishes.  We can remove a section of the street level balustrade and discreetly adapt it into a fully compliant interlocked access gate.

Lyfthaus provide access solutions from street level up to entrance level (two stops), from street level down to basement level (two stops), and between entrance level to street level and down to basement level (three stops). 

Basement to street level at the touch of a button

All platform sides can be made accessible to provide through car and adjacent entry configurations and are fitted with an LED light, halo back lit controls, non-slip flooring or a floor tray to suit your own choice of floor and protective bellows.  Platform mounted safety switches can be included for applications with any potential trapping points.   All floor to floor lightwell lifts are fitted with unobtrusive guides to stabilise the platform.

In addition to platform lifts intended for disabled users we also offer bike lifts, bin lifts and goods lifts for lightwell basement installation.  Please contact our experts for further details.
