A Culture of Contemporary Design Excellence
Creating platform lifts with architectural appeal and the ability to turn heads begins on the virtual drawing board.
Through computer aided design to manufacture, lines on screen and paper become reality via high technology and advanced engineering, not to mention a great deal of help from highly skilled hands-on engineers and our own talented, keen eyed design team who understand the prestige marketplace and enjoy the challenges presented by discerning clientele.
The design stage is crucial, leaving nothing to chance. Form and function must be balanced perfectly, fit and finish must be exceptional. We are greatly influenced by modern architecture which is translated into a platform lift design that complements its environment and enhances the lives of its disabled operators. Each platform lift must be beautiful and a joy to use – the art of elevation.
Producing a Beautiful Mylyft Premium Platform Lift
Once the specification has been agreed, manufacturing co-ordination and compliance come into play.
With extreme efficiency, the production of a Mylyft platform lift will commence. Timing, communication and expertise are crucial. By the time the scissor mechanism has been produced the platform will be ready for fitting out, every single component will have been production planned and it’s progress recorded on the central Lyfthaus IT system.
Accuracy in manufacturing thanks to the CAD/CAM technology means that each component matches perfectly with its neighbour, even though they may have been produced in factories or workshops miles apart. If the smallest piece of wiring is to be countersunk behind a panel, the groove will have been specified from the earliest design plans, programmed into the CAM computer, and milled to the exact tolerance required.
At the Lyfthaus Technology Centre a highly skilled workforce covering disciplines including engineering, programming, metal work, electronics, glazing and hydraulics produces, tests and hand-finishes each platform lift using only the finest quality materials and the utmost attention to detail.
Every hour of the platform lift construction process is logged, monitored and analysed in the pursuit of quality and efficiency; there is constant communication and collaboration between team leaders, production planners and designers to ensure that every single action involved in the construction is right first time, every time.
Putting all these elements together requires genuine team spirit, which at Lyfthaus is not just a nod to it’s family-firm ancestry. It is genuine, and also remarkable in a workforce that covers so many disciplines. This team spirit and pride in one’s workmanship is what really brings a Mylyft platform lift into being.
Once construction and hand finishing are complete, finally comes the testing, installation and hand-over stage. Each platform lift is only ever as good as it’s installation and we employ the finest installation engineers, experts in their field who are courteous, knowledgeable and highly experienced.
Another Mylyft platform lift is put into service, proudly bearing the Lyfthaus name and it’s English heritage.
