Usage and Requirements
Platform lifts are ideal as school lifts, so it is easier to look at where they are not suitable!
There are certain building features that would make a larger lift (conventional lift) more suitable:
- If you need to travel over 6 floors / 13m
- If the lift will be used more than once every 2 minutes
As with everything, cost is a big factor. Our platform lifts are a great mid-range solution, starting at around £13,000.
Platform lifts come into their own when it comes to lifetime costs. With annual servicing packages from £300, optional LOLER certificates, and a spare parts department on hand, we’re here to keep your lift running.
Put your lift almost anywhere! With a small footprint, and option to install inside or outside, there is always a way. With free school lift site visits, we can advise on best locations as well.
As Gartec platform lifts are able to have doors on multiple and different sides at each floor, an external to internal lift is easy.
We can install our lifts with the included shaft, or put the lift into your existing shaft too. All we need is a hole in the floor!
