Passenger: the platform lift
The sine qua non of this type of lift is that it must be able to be controlled in absolute safety by anyone; the elimination of the internal door, the infra-red barrier and the automatic door-openers (available on request) make this the ideal unit to ensure compliance with updated regulations on the removal of architectural barriers.
The Millepiani PASSENGER is the ideal platform lift for private residences and commercial premises. It integrates seamlessly into the installation environment and can be made to fit into very restricted spaces, achieving the perfect balance between attractive appearance and ease of use.
This lift can be positioned at an appropriate distance and in very small spaces, and consumes only a very limited amount of energy, similar to the quantity used by a normal home appliance.
In contrast to traditional systems, this type of lift requires the button to be held down throughout the period of travel. This feature makes it possible for the user to interrupt the movement of the lift immediately, thus ensuring maximum security inside the car.
This platform lift complies with the new Machinery Directive 2006/42/CE.
The new Directive, which came into force on 30/12/2009, allows for the application of doors inside the car, enabling AUTOMATIC control. As such, this platform lift is like a small passenger lift, and can travel at a maximum speed of 0.15m/s.
