Our Best Selling Vertical Platform Lift (VPL)...

...and it's not hard to see why! This compact platform lift is designed to take users to heights of 1 metre, making it an ideal alternative to a ramp, taking up far less space and effort to navigate.

Because of this, it has become popular with business owners of shops, pubs, bars, restaurants, and many other premises, as well as being a popular choice for gardens and front porches across the county (where a higher travelling solution than the SP is required).

Reasons To Choose The LR

A Popular Option

Our best selling platform lift, the LR has something that keeps people coming back. We believe it strikes a balance between affordability, travel height, aesthetic, and comfort.

Designed For Indoors And Outdoors

The LR is designed with coating and material choices that make it perfectly suited to tackling tough weather conditions. We're so confident in its ability, we offer, as standard, a 5 year anti-corrosion warranty. In fact, we offer it on all our platform lifts.

No Ramp Required

Using a ramp can sometimes be an uphill struggle, but the LR makes a similar change in elevation easy to handle. With easy to use controls and effortless installation, the LR is perfect for public spaces where the lift is in frequent use.

Features At A Glance
