The perfect lift for your home
Elderly or disabled people require solutions that allow them freedom of movement inside their homes. The lifting platform “Pluto” provides the perfect solution to mobility between levels in the home. And it does it in a comfortable, safe and elegant manner.
For private homes, Pluto is the smallest screw/nut lifting platform in the world, able to fit into any environment. Pluto is a cost-effective solution for accessibility needs in private homes and is fully compliant with European Directives 98/37/EC.
- People will not have to move out of their homes due to mobility problems
- Faster, safer and more comfortable than a stair lift
- Will blend in together with current furnishing
- Lifting capacity of 2 people/1 person in a wheelchair/225kg
- Very easy to operate
- The lift can travel up to 5 floors
During the last four year period, more than 400 Plutos have been installed in more than 15 different countries around the world. The product has clearly proven itself to be reliable. The lifetime of a Pluto is equivalent to the lifetime of the building it’s in.
Pluto stands for high levels of quality and reliability. It is also simple and quick to install has a short maintenance time and, most importantly, is safe and comfortable to use.
In a Pluto, travel between floors is safe and easy. Enter the lift and operate it by continuously pressing the button for the desired floor. Release the button to stop at any time; start it up by pressing the button again. The platform operation console houses light, large tactile push buttons which also provide emergency stop and alarm functions. All edges are guarded by sensors and, in the case of an emergency, the lift can be pulled manually, or by an optional battery system, to the closest floor.
The Pluto requires very little construction work and can be installed into existing or newly built homes. All that is required is an available floor area of 910 mm x 1370 mm. The standard lifting platform requires only a 50 mm pit. If delivered with a ramp, the pit is not required.
Remarkably, the Pluto does not have an external machine room. All the necessary machinery and the electrical system are housed inside the shaft enclosure – “what you see is what you get.”
