FLEXSTEP Case: Danish Parliament: Christiansborg Palace

The first of 4 FlexSteps in the Danish Parliament

Liftup was contacted by the architect responsible for the old historic building Christiansborg Palace, because he was looking for an integrated solution to provide access to all persons, walking and walking-impaired, for one of the main assembly rooms in the Danish Parliament.

The wide historic staircase 6 steps down to the assembly room was divided with a FlexStep in the middle to create easy access to wheelchair users and walking impaired. The old floorboard steps were re-used as step inserts and brass handrails were the finishing touch preserving the style and atmosphere in this historic room.

The Danish Parliament, the Folketing, is located in Christiansborg Palace in the heart of Copenhagen city. Members of Parliament use most of the rooms in the building for offices and meeting rooms.

FlexStep

The FlexStep stairlift is designed to function both as an ordinary staircase and as a wheelchair lift. Developed and manufactured by Liftup, the FlexStep is flexible and equally useful for pedestrians and wheelchair users alike.
