The installation of 2 lifts at the Ysgol Cynwyd Sant School in Bridgend, South Wales gives special needs students access to both learning and fun.
The Ysgol Cynwyd Sant school is located in a period building, situated in an elevated position above the picturesque town of Maesteg. The school enjoys beautiful views of the surrounding valley, but its playground was difficult to access for any special needs students. The age of the building also meant that some classrooms were only accessible through a curved staircase. Two platform lifts were required in order to ensure everyone could fully utilise the school’s facilities.
Study hard, play hard
Time was of the essence with both installations as they needed to be completed during the summer school holidays to keep disruption to a minimum. Furthermore, the council wanted to avoid any major building works and achieve both a functional and aesthetically pleasing solution.
The S7 CR Inclined Platform Stairlift was the perfect solution for the school’s curved staircase. Folding away neatly while not in use, the lift allows normal access up the narrow staircase for the ambulant.
The LR1 Vertical Platform Lift, on the other hand, was a great choice for the school’s playground, which was situated in a unique location. Accessible only through a narrow passage and stairs leading up to an elevated ground, the playground was difficult to reach until the LR1 was in place. With both installations completed on time, a special needs student no longer had to miss a single game with his friends in the playground!
