The Aritco 4000 passenger platform lift is our most compact home lift, bringing all the benefits of an elevator in your home, whilst only taking up the space of an airing cupboard or wardrobe – ideal for a small home access solution. With no major building works and just 3 days to fully install the modular structure, the Aritco 4000 residential lift is a simple and easy addition.
Created as a compact lift, we offer 3 platform sizes at 250kg, needing only a 50mm pit or ramp and no headroom, you can travel up to 13m (6 stops) with up to 2 doors on any side at each floor. Our innovative drive system uses a patented screw and nut mechanism, bringing you eco-friendly and super-quiet transport. Please note that the smaller sizes are not suitable for a wheelchair user – if this is a requirement please also see our larger lift model, the HomeLift Access and HomeLift.
With three platform sizes, the Aritco 4000 is suitable as both a standard wheelchair lift (large platform) or to carry up to 2 passengers (small and medium platform), great for any size property – and is eco-friendly to boot, using around the same amount of power per year as a washing machine.
This domestic lift comes with its own shaft enclosure, making it a virtually free-standing lift, and is very easy to install anywhere in a new build, or as a retro fit in existing properties. With single swing glazed doors or double leaf doors available in automatic or manual, the Aritco 4000 is both functional and stylish, designed to blend in and modernise any home.

Using steel, aluminium, glass and as little plastic as possible allows for recyclability of almost all the materials that are needed to manufacture Gartec lifts, with up to 92% of the materials used already from recycled and sustainable sources. All that is left which is non-recyclable are parts of the electrical cable system and the battery. Aritco, our parent company are constantly developing our lifts and as battery technology changes, our lifts will be developed to incorporate recyclable batteries.
With rigorous development to achieve maximum recyclability and the forward thinking on materials, manufacturing processes and new technology we are always looking to provide the most eco-friendly lift solutions. We are proud that every step taken from Design to Installation, sustainability and energy efficiency has been factored into the process.
When considering energy efficiency in your home, the Gartec 4000 home lift is powered by a 1.1kW motor which uses less energy than a standard domestic kettle or hairdryer. Similarly, the low-energy LED lighting and display components all contribute to a more sustainable and greener solution.
HOW DO ELECTRIC PLATFORM LIFTS WORK?
Vertical platform lifts are contained within a shaft. This shaft has guide rails along two corners of the shaft which help to guide the carrier, which is generally an L shaped platform attached to a mast. When using an open platform lift, the walls remain in the same place as the platform raises or lowers.
There is a wide range of electric, hydraulic, and mechanical platform lifts, including enclosed cabin lifts, industrial vertical platform lifts, and even hidden platform lifts. Cabin platform lifts work in the same way as normal platform lifts but, rather than having an L shaped carrier, the platform is contained within a box to give the feel of a conventional lift.
In order to use an open platform lift, applying continuous pressure to the up or down buttons will allow the user to reach their destination. From the outside, using a single touch button will call the lift to the floor. For enclosed cabin lifts, rather than having to apply continuous pressure, a single touch button will be found inside that can be used to bring the user to the correct floor.
