    Stannah 2000kg goods passenger lift – supporting King’s College Hospital with a goods-accompanied lift solution

     
    London, UK, 24th June 2014. – A special Stannah 2000kg goods attendant lift was the perfect solution for the safe transit of goods and people in the Receipt and Distribution Unit of King’s College Hospital Business Park in the London Borough of Lambeth.

    Stannah provided this unique solution to meet the specific lift requirements of the hospital. This industrial-duty, hydraulic-drive goods passenger lift is responsible for the movement of patient beds and supplies for King’s College Hospital – an acute care and major teaching facility on the same complex. It allows goods to be accompanied by up to two people whilst the lift travels between two floors at a speed of 0.140 m/s – a distance of 3225mm.

    This through-entrance bed lift is finished inside with galvanised steel walls and anti-slip steel chequer plate floor to ensure a robust interior throughout the service life of the lift. Fully automatic 4-panel centre-opening car and landing doors, measuring 1400mm x 2100mm, are finished in steel, as is the car, which measures a roomy 1400mmW x 2400mmD. A push-button control panel is provided in the lift car and adjacent to each landing door for the attendant(s) to use. Access to operate the lift from the landing is via key card operation to ensure use only by designated persons.

    This hydraulic goods lift was specified by surveyor, Wayne Everitt, of Wilby & Burnett, a multi-disciplinary practice of Chartered Surveyors and Chartered Architects based in Saffron Walden: “We specified this lift mainly because it did not require a pit. We were able to retrofit with relative ease thanks to its structure-supported capability – no structural shaft was required, or a significant foundation. We simply cast a small raft foundation and the lift fitted easily. We have also installed a Stannah passenger lift on the King’s College Hospital Business Park, and both lifts have proved cost-effective people-and-goods-moving solutions.”

    The goods attendant lift complies with the 2006/42/EC Machinery Directive. Installing, owning and operating a goods lift helps owners to meet Manual Handling Regulations and improves the logistics within the building – all with the reassurance of continued product service and maintenance by the local branch of Stannah Lift Services (3 visits per year), part of a nationwide network providing 24 hour, 365 days a year support.
