HDN – Hidden in the floor

Introducing the HDN, an innovative lift from Liftup designed specifically for wheelchair users. This lift combines elegant aesthetics with robust construction, offering full adaptability to its surroundings. When not in active use, the HDN lift discreetly conceals itself in the floor, seamlessly aligning with the existing floor, creating a visually pleasing and clutterfree environment.

Renowned for its ingenuity and modern design, the HDN lift effortlessly combines form, function, and elegance in a single stroke. Consequently, it holds immense appeal, particularly for entrance areas featuring 1 or 2 steps, such as shops and office premises.

Thanks to the HDN, wheelchair users can be accommodated without compromising on layout or style, even in space-constrained settings. Notably, no redecoration is required to accommodate the lift, as it effortlessly adapts to the room’s existing aesthetics. The HDN can be seamlessly and elegantly integrated into any design, discreetly blending into its surroundings.

Nordic Design

Refers to the design traditions and aesthetics of the Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. It is characterized by a focus on minimalism, functionality, and simplicity, often with a natural or muted colour palette. Materials such as wood, glass, and metal are often used, and the design often incorporates natural elements. Nordic design is known for being clean, modern, and visually appealing. It is often associated with the concept of “hygge” which refers to a sense of coziness and comfort.

Nordic Quality

Similar to our other products, HDN is meticulously crafted from durable and stable materials, ensuring longevity and reliability. The versatility of HDN’s design options allows for personalized adaptation to its surroundings, creating an exclusive yet approachable style that seamlessly integrates into a wide range of indoor and outdoor settings. With HDN, you have the flexibility to infuse your space with a touch of sophistication, making it a perfect fit for most buildings and environments.

In the heart of Herning, a town in Jutland, Denmark, stands an appealing historic structure built in 1965. Currently, this building serves as the headquarters for a prestigious engineering and consulting firm. While the building’s original 1960s red brick exterior still retains its character, significant transformations have taken place. The structure has undergone extensive modernization to enhance sustainability and accessibility, aligning it with contemporary standards and ensuring its continued relevance.

In 2018, the building underwent a significant renovation, driven by the goal of ensuring long term viability and sustainability. Today, as you step
through the main entrance, you’ll encounter an accessibility solution seamlessly integrated by Liftup. In fact, it’s so discreetly designed that you might not notice it at all. The HDN lifting platform is ingeniously concealed within the floor, expertly camouflaged with tiles that perfectly blend with the surrounding flooring, preserving the building’s aesthetics and functionality in perfect harmony.

“It’s great that everyone can enter the office, without worrying about accessibility.”

Emergency stop on the platform:
activate the emergency stop and the platform stops an unintended movement.

Safety panels:
10-cm safety panels prevent the wheelchair on all 3 open sides from rolling off when lifting/lowering the platform.

The closed system minimizes the risk of being hit by moving parts.

Overload protection:
the weight on the platform must be evenly distributed. In case of overload the platform stops. In such a case, move the platform down and exit it.

Silent drive:
as the lifting mechanism and motor are located under the lift, there is only minimal operating noise.

Elevated aesthetics for everyday life

Open your home and bring people together with HDN. This solution provides full accessibility to all levels for the whole family, and the discreet installation maintains the open spaces of a modern home. The inclusivity that HDN brings into a room promotes the sense of independence and freedom that everyone needs to feel at home.

The name ‘HDN’, which stands for ‘HIDDEN,’ is fitting when you consider it. The lift is thoughtfully concealed beneath tiles matching the entire floor, achieving a seamless integration within the interior. Furthermore, the inclusion of safety panels on the sides of the HDN lift has proven to be immensely valuable, especially with small children in the household. They serve as a safety feature, significantly reducing the risk of accidents such as getting stuck or pinched in or by the lift.
