See the Invisible Step Lift by Oyster Mayfair in action on this video:
There are 3 different models of The Invisible Step Lift by Oyster Mayfair, all suitable for domestic or commercial use:
This model is for travelling straight up/ down between two different floor levels (of up to * 800 mm) where a series of steps are not involved- for example in a split level room or travelling from floor level up on to a stage/ raised platform area or directly up from the driveway or garden level to a ground floor front or back door threshold.
* Optional Extra on Special Order Model V : The maximum elevation on Model V can be extended to 1,000mm.
This alternative model also travels vertically and then on reaching the desired travel height (of up to 800 mm) the top platform that the wheelchair stands on slides out horizontally bridging the gap between the steps and the floor (up to a maximum of 1,000 mm).
For overcoming a single step up to a maximum height of 220 mm.

The Invisible Step Lift by Oyster Mayfair blends in with its surroundings, the top surface can be finished in a variety of materials such as: marble, brick, slate, wood, laminate, carpet and many other flooring finishes used in domestic or retail/ business premises.
Requiring no ramp – there is virtually no visual impact with this low rise transfer lift. Suitable for many domestic installations and also where an alternative option is required for providing disabled access for wheelchair users in commercial or heritage buildings where traditional wheelchair ramps may not be a viable option due to lack of space for a long ramp or other aesthetic/ interior design considerations.
Preparatory site works – We will provide customers, including their builders and electrician, with instructions and guidance for any necessary building work (creating a pit outdoors or an under floor recess indoors for the lift to be concealed in) including details for providing an electrical supply that will need to be arranged by and paid for by the customer direct to their contractor before we can install and connect the lift.

The Invisible Step Lift by Oyster Mayfair can also be permanently installed outdoors in order to provide discreet wheelchair access to/ from gardens, driveways, patios and decking. It can blend in with modern or traditional properties and their surroundings.

The invisible step lift by Oyster Mayfair can also be used in commercial premises such as restaurants, shops, offices, hotels, clubs, pubs, bars, coffee shops, reception areas as well as museums, art galleries, schools or other buildings where split level flooring can present problems for disabled access in wheelchairs.
Did you know that there are about 1.2 million wheelchair users in the UK? (Source: Google/ NHS England – April 2019).

Naturally the “Invisibility” of our low rise transfer lift makes it an interesting option for providing disabled access for wheelchair users to heritage buildings or churches where alterations to a building might have to be as sympathetic/ discreet as possible.
