Sesame Access Systems Ltd have provided their Sesame Stairlift for ‘The Space Needle’ one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world in Seattle.
The specification was for a high quality but unobtrusive wheelchair access lift, to transport wheelchair users 900mm within the viewing platform.
Sesame’s invisible wheelchair lift was designed bespoke for the Space Needle, lit glass stair risers were required as well as bespoke handrails.
Sesame travelled to Seattle to meet the Client and Architects to develop and agree the design.
The bespoke lift was manufactured in Sesame’s workshop in Surrey and then seafreighted to Seattle.
Steven Lyons, Managing Director said: “I am really pleased we have now installed our wheelchair lifts in USA. It’s is challenging to make a lift which complies to the USA market.”
“This now opens the doors for future exports all over the USA. We thank Department of International Trade (DIT) and the British Government for helping us export to USA and also supporting our Research and Development of this important product”.
Alison Lyons, Director of Commercial Development, said: "Sesame has increased its exports over recent years, mainly due to the incredible support of our Department of International Trade (DIT) (SE Team) advisor Andrew Mapstone.”
“Andrew has taken time to understand our business, signposted us to key export events and has given us invaluable advice and encouragement over the years. We have discovered exporting is much easier than we originally thought. Sesame is now proud to be a DIT Export Champion 2019. If we can, you can".
