mobile PMR lifting platforms offer a practical, simple and economical solution to facilitate access for people with reduced mobility and disabilities. Capable of crossing obstacles of up to 1.4 m, these platforms constitute an ideal response for temporary situations when it is not possible to use a PRM access ramp.

Context of use of mobile lifting platforms

Mobile PMR lifting platforms are designed to help people with reduced mobility access places such as theaters, churches, concert halls, cinemas, schools or others. These public spaces often present obstacles such as stages, podiums and stands, which are difficult to access for a person in a wheelchair. In fact, the architectural structures of these establishments often do not take into account the access needs of people with reduced mobility, making these areas often inaccessible. Thus, mobile PMR lifting platforms offer an interesting access solution, particularly thanks to their ability to overcome obstacles of up to 1.4 meters. They can be used indoors as well as outdoors.

They are used fortemporary access needs, when a permanent arrangement is not possible or desired, as they move easily and installs in minutes. They thus allow these places to be accessible to everyone, whatever the event or activity planned.

Advantages of mobile elevating platforms

One of the main advantages of these lifting platforms is theirmobility. Equipped with casters, these platforms can be easily moved and stored, thus offering numerous possibilities of use. They are brought to the place of use by one or two people and are deployed as needed without requiring much preparation. They can be stored in a technical room when not in use, thus freeing up space in access areas.

Their installation is also simple. It does not require heavy work or significant structural modifications. All you need is a single-phase 220V power outlet and a flat, hard and smooth surface on which the platform will rest.

In terms of cost, mobile aerial platforms are generally more economical than building a concrete ramp. In addition to their affordable purchase price, their maintenance is simple and is mainly limited to cleaning.

Operating mechanism of mobile lifting platforms

Handicap Accès offers several models of mobile PMR lifting platforms, each with its own characteristics and operating mechanism.

Elevating platforms with scissor lifting mechanism

The model Liftboy Type 1, 2 and 3 works using a scissor lift mechanism. This technology is based on a set of arms linked in the shape of an “X” or “scissors”. When deploying, these arms raise the platform. The movement is ensured by an electric motor which sets in motion a cylinder. It is a robust and reliable system which ensures stability and comfort during lifting.

Elevating platforms with worm drive

The PAV models operate using a screw drive unending. This training system is recognized for its ability to support heavy loads, while providing great comfort of movement. It is ideal for frequent use. PAV lifting platforms offer an optimal compromise between performance, reliability and ease of use.

Elevating platforms with hydraulic cylinder

The Liftboy MHP model uses a hydraulic cylinder to raise and lower the platform. This system is renowned for its large lifting capacity and fluidity of movement. Users of the Liftboy MHP will appreciate its quiet and smooth operation, as well as its robustness.

Regulations, size and lifting capacity for ERP

The use of these mobile lifting platforms in establishments open to the public (ERP) is subject to specific regulations. It is important to note that this regulation does not apply in a private setting (individuals or corporate offices).

According to the regulations, a mobile vertical lifting device must meet certain minimum characteristics. The lifting platform must have a useful dimension of 0.90 m × 1.40 m for single or opposite service, and 1.10 m × 1.40 m for corner service. It must be able to lift a load of 250 kg/m2, corresponding to a mass of 315 kg for a platform measuring 0.90 m × 1.40 m.

It is crucial to emphasize that only the departmental safety and accessibility consultative commissions (CCDSA) are authorized to confirm the use of elevators which do not comply with these characteristics in an ERP. It is therefore strongly recommended to consult these commissions for each particular case.
