Lifts for Commercial Buildings

Lifts for Commercial Buildings

Bespoke Lift Installation for Commercial Buildings

A commercial building project that didn’t include the provision of lifts would be unthinkable. Vertical transport is now woven into the pattern of our working lives, whether it’s arriving at your desk on time, moving goods around internally, or being able to access the building in a wheelchair. Lifts for commercial buildings have to work hard, look good, and last decades.

Every building is unique, and the Tower Lifts team of designers, installers and lift consultants work with architects to determine the vertical transport solution that will best serve it. Early discussions will include topics such as:

  • Design and Aesthetics
  • Functions and Durability
  • Passenger Cabin Design
  • Equality Act Compliance
  • Security Requirements

Seamlessly Integrated Passenger Lifts

The Tower Lifts team works with architects and interior designers to ensure that the look of the lift we install matches the vision articulated in the building as a whole. For refurbishments this may mean echoing the historic style of the building, as we did with an Art Deco lift for Irene House in London.

Our bespoke passenger lifts aim for a combination of effortless public usability, and design that reflects the beauty of the surrounding environment. Most important, our designs will work within the architectural constraints of the building we’re working with.

If you have a view you want to celebrate, why not install a scenic lift as part of your vertical transport system? Our glazed scenic lifts offer users a unique experience, providing panoramic views of your building’s surroundings without compromising on space or performance.

Wheelchair Lifts for Commercial Buildings

The Equality Act 2010 requires that people with limited mobility, or those using a wheelchair, can access places of work, or public buildings. This may require adjustments to the building to remove obstacles to access, or to enhance it. The use of platform lifts make commercial buildings inclusive, rather than exclusive environments.

  • Step Lift. Used to provide access for wheelchairs and their users up short flights of steps. If you have steps in the approach to your building, or split-level flooring within, the step lift is a simple and elegant response. This durable installation can be installed internally or externally.
  • Inclined Lift. Many stairlifts require the user to leave their wheelchair in order to use them. The inclined platform lift allows the wheelchair user to remain in their wheelchair. When not in use the platform folds back allowing for foot traffic. It can be installed internally or externally on straight, curved, or spiral stairways.
  • Vertical Platform Lift. This enclosed cabin platform lift looks like a small passenger lift but doesn’t require a lift shaft for installation. This makes it a flexible, good-looking solution for access to multiple floors. It can be installed inside or out, with custom finishes to match the style of the building.

Goods Lifts for Commercial Buildings

Commercial buildings require a combination of ‘front-of-house’ (FOH) lift provision and backstage lifts that ensure goods move around the building efficiently. The traditional goods lift moves larger items from a delivery bay to kitchens, store rooms or work bays. A smaller version of this, the dumbwaiter lift can be customised for the transport of food, laundry, or cleaning materials between floors.

Tower Lifts installs a range of goods lifts dependent on the specific requirements of the building:

  • Heavy Duty Lifts for the transport of large items such as vehicles, machinery, or large artworks.
  • Goods Only Lifts don’t need a lift shaft, so they are a simple and flexible way to move goods between floors.
  • A Goods Lift With Attendant is suitable for goods and people. It’s a modular structure and doesn’t require a lift shaft.
  • The Dumbwaiter Lift is a cabinet style service lift that is normally installed at waist height. It can be used to transport food, small goods, or laundry.

Refurbishing or Modernising Legacy Lifts for Commercial Buildings

If you have a good-looking lift in situ which you would like to retain, the Tower Lifts team can modernise, or refurbish it for you. This ensures that your legacy lift meets current legislation, performs economically and reliably, and looks cared for and nurtured.

Our lift repair and maintenance service will repair any existing problems that your lifts may have, then develop a lift servicing schedule that perfectly matches your lift. Our tailored maintenance contracts take into account your lift’s operation conditions, age, usage, overall condition, date of manufacture and mechanical components.
