Stannah beetles into action at the BugWorld Experience!

Stannah beetles into action at the BugWorld Experience!

Housed in a Grade 1 listed historic building at Liverpool’s Albert Dock, the UK’s first state-of-the-art insectarium, the BugWorld Experience, has made a very natural selection in a Stannah Midilift SL to help visitors with compromised mobility discover the venue’s creepy-crawly attractions.

This two-stop vertical platform lift improves access for everyone in this £3.8 million refurbishment. From buggy-pushers to wheelchair-users, it helps the public to participate fully in all its interactive challenges, games and simulated natural environments. Braver visitors can also touch some of the creatures and even tuck in to insectivorous delicacies from around the world.

Ideal for improving access to public buildings, the Midilift SL features easy-to-use, constant-pressure buttons and joystick, slip-resistant floor and sensitive safety edge that will stop the lift automatically should an obstacle impede it. Finished in matt grey to complement the décor, the lift operates within its own structure-supported enclosure and fully-glazed shaft, with a ramp to ease entry and exit to the rear of the ground floor. Importantly, the lift helps premises’ owners meet the requirements of the DDA.

The BugWorld Experience General Manager, Jenny Dobson, comments: “A must for all budding scientists, adventurers and travellers, the BugWorld Experience is the only venue in Britain where they can get up close and personal with insects in such a fun and educational way. Our Midilift helps everyone experience our attraction and it is giving invaluable service to our many visitors.”
