“We were thoroughly impressed with Niche’s professionalism, speed and efficiency of the job in hand. We found them to be quick and efficient and importantly we did not get bombarded by inexperienced sales people – they did everything that they said on the website.” – Phil Coombes, Fastlane Turnstiles
We were contracted by Fastlane Turnstiles in Feltham to install a two stop platform lift within their modern office building. Being the market leader in entrance control products, and having recently received the Queen’s award for Enterprise for growth in international trade, Fastlane have been expanding rapidly. Therefore, in reflection of their expansion they decided that improved accessibility was needed within the building.
A key factor was compliance with the Equality Act 2010, Fastlane required a lift that provided safe, comfortable and easy access to the first floor for those with disabilities. They also wanted the platform lift for transporting heavy exhibition equipment from one floor to the other, creating a safer and less stressful transfer. Their investigation led them to the Niche Lifts website where they used our Quick Quote Budget Calculator. Therefore, when it came to contacting us, they knew exactly what they wanted. It was paramount that the lift was fully accessible, have easy-to-use controls and required low maintenance to run.
Niche Lifts installed a five-person Altair fully enclosed platform lift, an attractive choice for any active business as installation is quick, easy and requires limited building work. One concern was that they did not want it to be an eye-sore in their stylish, modern glass panelled building; they wanted the lift’s appearance to match seamlessly with their interior. Therefore, working together, the decision was made that the lift was to be enclosed in a fully glazed lift structure.
