EN81-70 is the standard regarding accesibility to lifts for persons including persons with a disability. It is also the benchmark for compliance of new lifts to meet the current requirements of the Equality Act 2010 and the Lift Regulations 1997.
It may be necessary for your lift(s) to undergo some modifications in order to ensure that they are accessible for all people. We offer a wide range of products that are both aesthetically pleasing but also fully compliant to EN81-70.
Although the standard can be a little in depth and its application changed from lift to lift, we have made available a downloadable checklist below for use to assist in quickly assertaining the compliance of your equipment.
