Stannah lifts extend accessibility at SS Great Britain

Stannah lifts extend accessibility at SS Great Britain

Stannah have added the seventh Stannah lift one of the favourite UK visitor attractions – Brunel’s SS Great Britain.

This time the lift is in the NEW ‘Being Brunel’ museum that aims to inspire budding engineers to follow in the footsteps of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In addition to the museum that houses never-before-seen artefacts, visitors can experience Brunel’s original offices just as they were in the 1800s.

The latest installation is a Stannah Piccolo lift, particularly suited to its situation between the brand new and old listed buildings in a limited space and providing access to both parts of the Brunel story.

The five person, fully automatic lift has a generous platform so it can be used by wheelchair users independently and the lift’s traditional sliding doors allows maximum space for entry and exit on both floors of the museum. The lift is wall mounted within the new section of the building, its stainless steel and light grey finish complimenting the aesthetics of the stairs and landing areas and contrasting with the colourful, decorative interior of the fascinating museum.
