These look and operate in the same way as a standard commercial passenger lift.

  • Designed for travelling shorter distances, typically around 9m
  • They are designed to accommodate a wide range of access requirements. For example, you may need doors on different sides of the lift for different floors.
  • Typically travels within a fully enclosed structure, securely fixed to a wall or floor level. This removes the need for costly building works and provision of a lift shaft.
  • Can be installed internally or externally to a building. With the enclosed structure being external this removes the requirements for any floors to be removed and is ideal for smaller spaces.  
  • The colours can be tailored to your surroundings.
  • Ideal for: Care/ residential/ nursing homes, restaurants and cafes, hotels, offices, stores, domestic buildings.
