Liko equipment ensures smiles at Shearer Centre

Liko hoisting and tracking systems play a unique part in ensuring The Alan Shearer Centre can realise its goal of being accessible to all children, regardless of disability.

The Newcastle based facility, designed to offer a place where children can escape from the harsh realities of dealing with a disability, provides a wide range of indoor and outdoor leisure activities for families to enjoy with a disabled relative.

Liko was on hand to offer advice throughout the development stages of the centre. As Liko was involved from the very beginning, an extremely effective overhead tracking system was planned that was specifically tailored to fulfil the needs of the users.

The Centre’s Deputy Manager Rod Molineux said: "The Liko overhead tracking systems we have in place are fantastic; without it, we wouldn’t be able to function in the way we want to. The centre has only been open for two years but is already a hub for community projects and activities for disabled and able bodied children. Our visitors range from those with mild learning disabilities to those with severe spinal injuries, and we want to maintain access for all of them.”
