Gartec 8000 Features

The Gartec 8000 is our hydraulic lift option, providing a 500kg weight limit and ideal size for stretcher lift or bike lift use. Even with a hydraulic system, the small 120-140mm pit and minimal headroom mean it will fit in a much smaller space with a high capacity.

Easy to install in your own shaft, or retrofit with its own supporting structure, the Gartec 8000 offers flexibility in commercial access.

Unlike many hydraulic systems, the 8000 doesn’t require a full machine room – just a self-contained ‘power pack’ unit within 9m of the lift.

Safety Features

Safety is built in with the Gartec 8000. With an autodialler and alarm button as standard, as well as a battery backup and emergency movement operation unit for external control, passengers travel in comfort.

Overload protection and an overspeed governor are fitted as standard.

Optional Features

Choose coloured panels, glass or stainless steel for the structure, doors and shaft panels, and a range of safestep flooring choices. A half- or full-height mirror and optional lighting designs can be added to the cabin too.

A range of telescopic doors include 3 and 4 speed (4 speed is centrally opening), with the option of 1 hour fire rated protection.

Take control of access in sensitive locations with a fully programmable i-button control system for landings and floor selection.
