On Wednesday this week we had our first power cut of the season, it lasted one and half hours.
It's never convenient, often a real nuisance but sometimes it must be really worrying.
Because of the recent discussion about lifts, my mind wandered on and I began to think about
the possibility of someone being stuck mid way in a through the floor lift.
I rang a reputable supplier and asked about backup emergency power supplies, and whether
they were standard, generally speaking.
There are basically two types of through the floor lift. Hydrolic and Traction.
The unbiased advice was try to opt for Hydrolic, a backup emergency power supply is usually standard.
With the Traction it's an extra, which can be more expensive.
It's also possible to have a special phone line in the lift, which would still work in a power cut.
