Panoramic Lifts

For much of the twentieth century, the lift served a variety of practical purposes using a technology that required an internal shaft, hidden from view. The last thirty years, however, have seen the lift liberated from its original functions and the scenic lift is now hugely popular – especially in large cities such as London where the skyline is in a constant state of transformation. Whilst panoramic views have always been a popular attraction, the glass lift offers its passengers the equivalent of a hot-air balloon ride, gently ascending from street level to rise above the buildings to gradually attain a bird’s eye view of the world below.

Panoramic Lifts Provide Buildings with a Unique Personality

Whilst décor, services and ambiance may soon be forgotten, a spectacular view provides a unique experience for passengers which lingers in the mind. Tower Lifts have installed glass panoramic lifts in shopping centres, hotels, retail outlets and – memorably – an opera house. In each case the aesthetic of the lift carriage was designed to match and enhance its surroundings, as well as being carefully positioned to ensure that guests and visitors were treated to the most stunning aspect of the views on offer.

Panoramic Lifts, designed to Stand the Test of Time

Our clients install scenic lifts to attract and delight a high volume of passengers; that means that our panoramic lifts need to be resilient and sturdy enough to remain reliable in these conditions. Each glass lift is designed to exceed the requirements it is expected to attract; they are also installed with ease-of-maintenance as a standard to ensure that any downtime is kept at a minimum. We want everyone to enjoy the experience of soaring above ground level, which is why all our panoramic lifts are designed with disability access as a priority and are fully compliant with Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) lift requirements.
