The FlexiPlus table lift provides easy access to the kitchen worktop for wheelchair users
FlexiPlus is a kitchen worktop lift system that makes the worktop height-adjustable. When a kitchen worktop is mounted on the FlexiPlus table frame, and when you remove base units, the kitchen becomes wheelchair accessible. The height-adjustable worktop gives seated users enough space for the wheelchair under the table, and they can reach the tap and use the hotplates without difficulty.
A flexible and accessible kitchen
To make a kitchen more accessible, you need solutions that are flexible. The FlexiPlus lift system comes in lengths ranging from 60 to 300 cm and may be customised to meet corner solutions and other unique requirements. The result is that you can adapt the lift system to fit your kitchen layout and a wide range of worktop sizes.
Existing pipework can often be in the way when installing a kitchen worktop lift system. However, FlexiPlus has a solution to that. The legs can protrude from the wall using distance brackets, making room for any pipework on the back wall. This means that you get more space on the tabletop for a sink and hotplates.
Smart and durable design
Sometimes, accessible kitchens can have an institutional feel to them. However, the FlexiPlus lift system has an elegant and stylish look. White cover plates hide the screws, and it matches any kitchen in private or professional settings.
The inside is just as strong and durable as the outside is elegant and smart. The clever design allows you to level out the worktop in three dimensions. This means that you can get a worktop that is completely even and levelled out.
Low-noise height adjustment
FlexiPlus is delivered with a 300 mm height adjustment. If required, the system can be programmed to an extended height adjustment range from 0-660 mm.
The low-noise FlexiPlus operates at just 37-40 dB. In comparison, the Flexi Electric Standard runs at 42-45 dB. Even though it may look like an insignificant difference, the noise output is notable and worth considering if you are looking for a quiet lift system.
Height adjustment control options
There are several options to adjust the height:
- A control panel on the front of the worktop.
- A control device with a key lock: the control device locks after a configured time, ensuring that only certain employees/residents can adjust the lift height. This option is relevant in settings where multiple users use the kitchen worktop, e.g. schools.
- A control device with pre-set heights: the worktop automatically travels to the positions programmed as favourites.
- Remote control: enables users to adjust the height at a distance.
Installing FlexiPlus is made as easy as possible, and it comes as a plug-and-play solution. There are fewer parts compared to other Flexi systems, and you get a user-friendly manual guiding you through the installation steps.
Keeping users safe
As always, when using height-adjustable solutions, things can get jammed when lowering or raising the table. That is why FlexiPlus is designed with a built-in security feature: The Ropox Sicuro anti-collision. The feature identifies power peaks below and above the tabletop. If the worktop hits any hard object, it stops immediately and relieves pressure.
It is also possible to add a safety stop strip under the worktop’s front edge. The safety stop will bring the worktop to a standstill if it registers any soft tissue resistance. It also relieves pressure so that you can remove the item that is squeezed.
All in all, the FlexiPlus lift system is a smart and durable solution that makes kitchen worktops height adjustable. And due to the carefully considered design and functionality, it is well-suited for both private homes and professional environments looking to improve kitchen accessibility for people with impairments.
