Gartec were selected by the building contractors McGoff & Byrne Ltd to install a platform lift for Loreto Grammar School's latest building project. The installation allowed the Cheshire-based school to significantly increase its usable teaching space by extending the building from two stories to three, and the addition of a new Gartec platform lift ensured access for all pupils and staff. To save the internal building space, the lift was located externally, anchoring it to the new glazed atrium of the school.
The Prime 7000XT lift was specified with school children in mind and Gartec recommended features to suit; a School Locking Facility to lock the lift to non-keyholders, and anti-tamper buttons designed to withstand robust usage.
The installation of the platform lift has allowed the school to maximise its limited space to the full and ensured access for all potential users, as required by the Equalities Act. Additionally, the lift's modern Scandinavian design means it blends seamlessly with the design of the glazed atrium.
Stuart Moore from McGoff & Byrne Ltd commented:
"The installation of the Prime 7000XT at Loreto Grammar School highlighted how good team work, technical expertise and a well-designed product can come together to produce a positive end result and a satisfied client."
