Thyssenkrupp Access – Vector Lift
Previous solutions to overcome barriers to wheelchair users often involved major building alterations, and the installation of expensive, traditional elevators or huge ugly ramp systems. These ineffective solutions are no longer necessary.
The Thyssen Vector has proven to be a very safe design and still meets the demands of today. The Vector is a platform lift, a shaft and an engine room all in one, making installation simple, without requiring any major structural alterations or drastic architectural adaptations. The standard carrying capacity is 400 kg and this can be upgraded to 630 kg. Operating in some countries up to 9 m high, the safety features include “hold to run” controls and an operating speed of 0.15 m/s.
The lift is usually shipped partially assembled and all components are equipped with convenient assembly features. The Vector is easy to assemble on-site and usually fits into an existing space, such as a corner or adjacent to a staircase. Once on site the build time usually takes two to three days.
The moving platform is enclosed on all sides so there is no danger to other people in the vicinity. The platform size can be varied – the standard lift occupies little more than 2 square metres. Above all, a lift should be pleasant to use and should integrate with the building design. The Thyssen Vector has an open character with optional glass walls or additional glazed door panels creating a feeling of spaciousness and comfort, despite the modest dimensions. The opening of the door can be varied from floor to floor on any of three sides.
