  • Stannah Midilift SLplus

    Stannah Midilift SLplus

    Stannah has added to its family of platform lifts with a cabin platform lift that uses a hydraulic drive as an ideal, cost-effective choice for low-rise situations.

    The NEW Stannah Midilift SLplus is a top-of-the-range version of the hydraulically driven part-enclosed Midilift SL, but with the addition of a full height cabin. No platform space has been lost as light rays and safety beams, around the entrance, protect the traveller without restricting the floor area.

    The Midilift SLplus is easy to install in its own structure, needs a very minimal pit of 70mm for level entry or can be supplied with a ramp and requires headroom of just 2500mm. The lift’s drive system is neatly tucked away in a small cabinet that needs very little space. The new platform lift complies with all the latest manufacturing and safety standards and is available directly from Stannah’s manufacturing base in the UK.
