Marine Academy Plymouth has created accessibility for its pupils by installing a Cibes lift in the primary school.
The academy called in Cibes to add an A5000 platform lift; a smart and adaptable lift solution for public and commercial buildings, to the existing lift space.
Alex Bettinson, Site Manager at Marine Academy Plymouth said: “We found Cibes Lift UK in very fortunate circumstances as a parent of a pupil at the academy said he was an engineer for Cibes and recommended an assessment.
“The previous primary school lift was a unique platform lift that had failed, which resulted in a variety of lift companies assessing the situation but did not understand what was needed and made it worse.
“The engineers, Rikki and Trevor, were very professional and knowledgeable of what needed to be done, they recommended that a new lift was needed to replace the old one and carried out the installation in just two days.”
The Cibes A5000 is very user-friendly and safe, which makes it a popular lift solution for schools and day-care centres.
The lift can hold a weight of 400kg and is installed with fire doors that comply with safety requirements for most public and commercial buildings.
Rikki Lennon, Technical Support and Service Engineer at Cibes said: “The Cibes A5000 standard platform lift fit in the footprint easily and worked out cost-effective for the academy, by installing a new lift with a warranty, rather than fixing the previous one.
“It was great to create reliable access for pupils with disabilities in the school and seeing the children enjoy watching the work that we carried out.”
Alex continued: “I know that we will use Cibes again as it was brilliant working with the team, and I would recommend them to anyone.”
