Stannah's new generation of Piccolo machinery directive platform lifts offers a practical and economic alternative to standard options
Looks like a passenger lift? Check. Functions like a passenger lift? Check. All the gorgeous interior options of a passenger lift range? No problem! The choices are endless.
While this lift is technically a machinery directive platform lift, the Piccolo looks just like a passenger lift with sliding doors, fully automatic cabin and landing controls. With its compact shaft size, minimal pit and headroom and its use of single-phase power supply, it is also offers reduced building work and time on site, making it both a practical and economical alternative.
What's more manufacturer Stannah has made installation of this even easier with the introduction of the Stannah FX structure option, a unique installation solution that comprises of a 'shaft within a shaft'. Erected by the firm's engineers, it negates the need for scaffolding within the shaft, saving both time and money on site. Travel is now up to 12m and with smaller cabin sizes available, this lift is now even more adaptable to your project.
Piccolo is a great alternative to a traditional platform lift when the position of the lift is against a load bearing wall and a shaft can easily be created. Its stylish, conventional appearance means it looks great in public buildings, schools and colleges, shops and restaurants and even in residential projects. It lends itself well to existing buildings, but is equally suitable for new-build projects.
The only thing you have to worry about with a Piccolo lift is letting us know your specifications. It is the lift for passengers that isn’t a passenger lift!
