When it comes to our lifts, we offer models with or without pits. However, there are a few pros and cons to consider when deciding whether a lift with a pit is right for you!
If you choose a pit, it can make life easier entering and exiting the lift. Having a small pit means the floor of the lift car can line up nicely to be level with the ground, giving level wheelchair access. However, when forming a pit isn’t possible, our lifts are designed to have small ramps that fold out, making it easy for wheelchair access.
Pits have to be constructed, which will add to building work costs. Externally mounted lifts may require drainage systems to allow water egress. If you ever want the lift removed, filling in the pit is another added cost. All of this will affect the cost of the product and, as such, we offer our lifts with alternative solutions to the pit.
