Esporta, the exclusive health and fitness chain, has ensured that people with mobility problems can have access to the wide range of facilities available at its new centre in Enfield, Middlesex by installing a Companion Prestige platform lift from Movement Management.
The latest luxury £4milllion Enfield club brings the total number of Esporta sites across the UK to 28. It combines all the elements that have made Esporta one of the UK's leading health club chains and is fully equipped to meet every fitness need.
Converted from a 22,000sq ft office block, the club provides a state-of-the art gym, dance studio, 20 metre swimming pool and relaxation area that includes sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. Members can also relax in the club bar and restaurant.
The Prestige platform lift has been installed in the club's reception area and provides alternative access to the first floor where the gym and dance studio are located.
A spokesman for the interior design company responsible for fitting out the premises confirmed that as space was restricted it was necessary to source a lift that didn't require a pit, a machine room or need much building work. As the Prestige is a fully self-contained unit and doesn't require a wall or structure for support, and simply runs on a 240v power supply, it satisfied these particular requirements.
Aesthetically pleasing in design, the Companion Prestige is designed to travel up to three storeys, can carry an optimum load of 400kg, and has a generous platform area of 1.5 x 1.1 metres. Furthermore, as it does not require a pit and has its own shaft, the Prestige can also easily be retrofitted with the minimum of disruption.
In addition to being manufactured to a customer's individual specification, all Movement Management products are fabricated to meet the most stringent safety standards, codes, and machine directives, including Part M of the UK building regulations.
Sally Hillman, general manager at Esporta Enfield says: "Whether you want to embark on a healthier lifestyle, relax and unwind, or catch up with an old friend, Esporta has something that appeals to everyone. We are especially delighted that the installation of the platform lift ensures that our less mobile members can have access to all the tremendous facilities on offer too."
