Passenger Platform Lift installation process
Gartec install passenger platform lifts very quickly, with an average installation time of around 2-3 days for both retrofits and new builds. Once a free site visit and checks are complete, all we need are holes in the floors to build through. We then build the lift shaft using a modular structure, adding the machinery and mechanics along the way. We generally don’t need any scaffolding as we use the platform to move up and down as it is built.
The load bearing footprint is important with our passenger platform lifts, but we can and have installed platform lifts on mezzanine floors – the most we may need is steel joists under the mezzanine. Gartec passenger platform lifts need floor level fixing points, but we can attach the lift shaft to fixing points at each floor meaning flexible options and a huge range of places to position your lift.
