Vertical Platform Lifts for Public, Residential & Commercial Buildings

Altair vertical platform lifts provide a cost-effective alternative to conventional passenger lifts. This vertical platform lift is the ideal solution for moving people and light goods between floors safely and comfortably.

Niche’s Altair vertical lifts can be used as disabled access lifts, as they meet the needs of wheelchair users and passengers with disabilities. When it comes to making businesses, shops and restaurants compliant with The Equality Act 2010 (formerly DDA), many of our customers have chosen the Altair disabled lift for its ease-of-use and affordability.

This vertical platform lift uses a screw-driven drive technology, making it safe and reliable, and it ensures a smooth and comfortable ride for passengers.
