Sesame Access Systems has installed a wheelchair stair lift at the Grade I Listed Bank of England in London. The Bank of England had been searching for an accessibility solution for a number of years. Its Grade I Listed status plus being situated in a very busy walkway and road in the City of London made it a challenging building to adapt.
English Heritage and the City of London approved a Sesame Access Victoria Stairlift at the front entrance to the building, in the staircase to the right of the principle entrance. The Sesame lift was clad in stone to match the rest of the building. Bespoke handrails were installed to complement the heavy iron historic door.
This was the first Sesame lift to be installed in one section using a 'plug and play' methodology. This worked really well and is now the installation method for the majority of Sesame's lifts.
