We are told that our school days are the best of our lives, but for a child with a disability, school can be another place that can make everyday life difficult for them to get on with.
At Kingshill School in Cirencester, pupils, teachers or visitors with disabilities have no problem in accessing different areas of the building and find that life has been made a great deal easier, thanks to movemanSKG.
When approached with the brief, the team of experts at movemanSKG advised that Kingshill's older lift should be replaced with the more efficient Prestige platform lift - an ideal model for installation at a school. A self-contained unit, the Prestige has a capacity of 400kg and travels between two levels.
The easy-to-operate lift is lit as standard and the doors are self-closing, plus many extra optional features are available, such as power-operated doors, which Kingshill School opted for as an additional benefit for the users of their lift.
"The lift is absolutely fantastic because it caters for many disabilities. People feel confident in using it because it is spacious, light and most importantly, they can see out of it. It looks smart, is well built and blends into its environment nicely. Overall, we were extremely happy with the product and service that we received from movemanSKG."

The Prestige platform lift can travel up to a height of nine metres. It is safe, reliable, comfortable and contemporary looking.
