Gartec PublicLift Cabin

The Gartec PublicLift Cabin is our quiet, energy efficient MRL (Machine Room Less) enclosed passenger cabin lift. It has all the standard features you expect from a traction lift such as automatic telescopic doors, but with extra options such as self-supporting glazed structure to give the look and feel of a conventional lift at a fraction of the price, with less building work in connection to installation.


The lift is designed with simplicity in mind, meeting all requirements for quality, and safety. It looks, feels, performs and operates like a conventional passenger lift, with no machine room (read more about Machine Room Less Lifts here) or deep pit required, offering complete freedom in design and simple usability, providing total safety in use. The energy efficient traction drive and fully automatic telescopic doors make it a versatile, cost effective passenger lifting solution. It is a perfect fit for tough and demanding environments such as offices, care homes, schools and residential buildings.

Fitted into your existing shaft, or supported in it’s own structural frame, the PublicLift Cabin provides a familiar user experience and single touch controls, with fantastic sustainability and simple electrical operation.

Ideal as an office lift, it offers compliance with building regulations Part M and the Equality Act whilst making users comfortable with the surroundings. With no machine room required, the lift takes up minimal space. The Gartec PublicLift Cabin is an ideal meeting of simple, low cost traction lift technology, and all the features you expect from a conventional lift – with the option of a glass shaft as well, providing a stylish and familiar access choice for users.
