Additional Information

Electricity supply: Most industrial premises operate from a three-phase electric supply, however smaller properties frequently have only single phase available. These small lifts can be manufactured to suit either situation.

Builder’s work drawings: Each lift will be provided with a site-specific Builder’s Work drawing, detailing works required prior to and after installation. A full electrical specification is also incorporated.

Builder’s Works: The necessary builder’s works will involve:

  • Cutting the required size opening through each floor.
  • Forming the enclosure, (normally made from timber stud & plasterboard, metal stud and fireboard, brickwork or blockwork). These lifts are provided in a galvanised self-supporting structure to negate the need for a load bearing enclosure.
  • Running an electric power supply to the lift shaft.
  • Providing and fitting a machine access door within the enclosure (unless part of lift contract).

Installation: A two floor lift is normally installed in 1 – 2 days, with a return visit to commission the lift once the enclosure is complete and electric supply has been run.

Health & Safety at Work legislations: All lifts satisfy the requirements, and minimises the risks, associated with Manual Handling and Health and Safety at Work legislation.

Flexibility: The flexibility of these ranges means these lifts are ideal for use in restaurants and bars, shops, public houses, offices, libraries, doctor’s surgeries, residential properties, warehouses, nursing homes, hotels, hospitals, schools, nurseries, nightclubs, airports and golf clubs.
