Thanks to a Prestige platform lift from movemanSKG, the Cheslyn Hay Leisure Centre’s newly refurbished gym is accessible to wheelchair users and complies with the Disability Discrimination Act. The centre hopes the lift will encourage less able people to use the facilities and increase the gym’s usage.
Gavin Postles, Team Leader at the centre, is delighted; "Accessibility is a top priority for the Cheslyn Hay Leisure Centre and we have increased staff disability awareness training. The lift means we are equipped to accommodate less able customers and makes our services available to all. movemanSKG installed it in just two days, minimising disruption to our gym."
Located in South Staffordshire, the Cheslyn Hay Leisure Centre has sports, aerobics and swimming facilities. It spent £250,000 refitting the gym, which incorporates the latest fitness equipment and has a range of membership options. Qualified professionals are at hand to offer advice and personal training. The platform lift allows wheelchair users to move between the gym and the reception area.
movemanSKG’s Prestige is very popular and ideal for public venues. It lifts payloads of 400kg up to nine metres and has a generously sized platform, meaning users experience a comfortable, pleasant transition between levels. The Prestige is simple to operate and has a range of finishing options. It comes with a twelve-month warranty and three inclusive service visits in the first year of ownership.
Gavin continued; "Finished smartly in white, our new Prestige lift blends with its surroundings. It is of excellent workmanship and performs reliably. movemanSKG provided an outstanding service and a first class product. We would recommend the company to other potential buyers."
