Stannah provides vertical-access in listed rail station

As part of Network Rail’s revamp of Haymarket Station in Edinburgh, the Stannah has installed three 16-person passenger/goods lifts to help bring step-free access to the travelling public, whatever their mobility level.

Haymarket Station is a Category A listed station located near the city centre. With a footfall of over 2 million, it is one of the most congested stations in the Scottish rail network.

Combining function and style for scenic travel and sense of space, the fully glazed, hydraulic passenger/goods lifts travel at a speed of 0.63m/s between the platform level and the footbridge, a distance range of 5645mm – 5765mm.

Each lift has been tailored to fit shaft constraints of 2100mmW x 2675mmD. The lift cars have also been customised from single entry to through car, with NICEIC electrical 240v installation, testing and certification offered as an optional extra. The machine rooms are separate.

To optimise design and performance in a demanding environment, the lifts feature vandal-resistant lighting, a durable finish, and remote monitoring by a Central Management System via a dedicated phone line, for fault analysis.

All works are in accordance with BS EN81, BS 7255, Network Rail specification NR/SP/ELP/27228, CDM, Stannah Lifts Services H&S policy, PUWER and LOLER.
