Tower Lifts also understand the importance of accessibility in public spaces

All of our retail lift installations are designed to be fully accessible and are compliant with Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) guidelines.  We are an ISO9001:2008 Lift Cert and UKAS approved company adhering to all lift regulations.

The Requirements of Retail Lifts

Lifts that are used in busy retail environments must be designed and constructed to tolerate frequent use throughout the day. Tower Lifts understand the requirements of retail lifts and our engineers use cutting edge technology to ensure reliability and safety in heavy-use environments.

We understand that busy retail environments require lifts that have very little downtime

Our retail lift installations are designed to be very low-maintenance.  When repairs or maintenance are required for the lift, it can be performed quickly and efficiently — minimising downtime in your busy retail environment.

Businesses in retail environments have a need for lifts for a variety of reasons including:

  1. To accommodate elderly and disabled customers who may find walking up stairs difficult
  2. To give the retail environment an advantage over competitors, where customers have to negotiate ramps and stairs
  3. To provide easy access in retail buildings where there is no room for a ramp
  4. Where consumers purchase heavy items that are difficult to carry down stairs or a ramp
  5. Retail lifts can increase worker productivity
