MV Lifts have completed the replacement of three outstanding lifts for Nottingham City Hospital. This Lift Installation comprises a duplex of Heavy Duty bed lifts to move patients from floor to floor in this very busy Maternity unit with the smoothness of the lift operation of paramount importance, adjacent to the bed lifts is a smaller passenger lift. Lift Installation was delayed after a structural survey discovered the walls would not be suitable to bear the weight of the lift and the lift would have to be installed within its own heavyweight steel structure which had to be custom made to fit within the shaft and to be suitable to carry a duplex of bed lifts with a capacity of 2500kg each. The passenger lift although in a different shaft would also require the same structure.
The Lift Installation had to be carried out in stages to allow access to continue for the maternity unit, 1st was the passenger lift, and then remove the 1st of two Hydraulic lifts, install the steel structure and replace with state-of-the-art digital control, Traction lift. Our service team was on-site 24/7 to counter any breakdowns with the one remaining bed lift.
