Five Stannah lifts at Packington Estate

Five Stannah Xtralift 2.0 passenger lifts are playing a key access role in Phase 3 of the award-winning regeneration of Packington Estate in the London Borough of Islington.

This £130-million, 8-year scheme is a glowing example of mixed-tenure housing, and is an ongoing venture that will replace 538 structurally defective flats with 791 energy-efficient houses and flats, together with facilities to include an energy centre, workshops, youth centre and retail units. The result? An erstwhile 1960s sink estate is being transformed into a nationally recognised triumph of integrated, uplifting, urban community living.
Phase 1 was completed with five Stannah passenger lifts in 2010, followed by two further lifts in Phase 2 in 2012. As with the previous Phases, Phase 3 sees five 8-person Xtralifts demonstrate Stannah’s ‘Access for All’ policy by helping residents access their apartment homes ranged over 6 – 7 floors in four new buildings.

The three simplex control and two duplex control passenger lifts are traction driven at a speed of 1.0 m/s in wall-mounted shafts measuring 1650W x 1835D. The lift car interiors are finished in satin stainless steel or silver-grey vinyl skinplate, with silver rear wall mirrors, handrails and black-studded, non-slip PVC floors. Optional extras include vandal-resistant reinforced cars, heavy-duty doors, tamper-proof LED ceiling lights and autodiallers.
Stannah has also supplied and installed passenger lifts in Phases I and 2 of this redevelopment, with four further lifts scheduled to be installed during Phase 4, totalling 16 lifts over the first four phases. This UK-leading lift company is experienced in delivering passenger lifts in social housing across the UK, and can work to individual specification.

Both the existing and latest five installed passenger lifts are covered by Stannah’s comprehensive 4 years service cover, which includes 24 hour breakdown cover and 12 service visits, with the continued lift maintenance by the Dartford branch of the London and South East arm of Stannah Lifts Services, part of a nationwide network providing comprehensive lift servicing and support.
