Frequently Asked Questions

The time it takes to install a commercial lift can vary depending on several factors, including the type and size of the lift, the complexity of the installation, and the specific requirements of the building. Generally, a commercial lift installation can take anywhere from several weeks to several months.

The installation process involves several stages, including site assessment, design and engineering, permit acquisition, construction, and final inspection and testing. The specific timeline for each stage can vary depending on the size and scope of the project, as well as any unforeseen issues that may arise during the process.

Factors that can affect the installation timeline include the need for custom design or modifications to the building structure, the availability of necessary permits and inspections, and the availability of skilled labour and equipment.

Yes, commercial lifts can be installed in existing buildings with the proper planning and modifications. Retrofitting a commercial lift into an existing building can provide accessibility and convenience for individuals with mobility issues, as well as improve the overall functionality and value of the building.

Regular maintenance and servicing of a commercial lift is essential for optimal performance, safety, and longevity of the unit. The frequency of service and maintenance depends on several factors, including the type and usage of the lift, as well as any specific requirements of the manufacturer or local regulations.

Generally, it is recommended to have a commercial lift professionally serviced and inspected at least once per year, and more frequently for high-traffic or high-use areas, such as hospitals or public buildings. Regular servicing can help prevent potential issues, ensure proper functionality, and identify any necessary repairs or replacements before they become major problems.

Some specific maintenance tasks that may be performed during a commercial lift service include:

  1. Cleaning and lubricating moving parts and components
  2. Checking and adjusting cables and pulleys
  3. Inspecting and testing safety features and emergency systems
  4. Replacing worn or damaged parts
  5. Checking and adjusting the hydraulic or pneumatic system
  6. Testing the lift under load conditions

In addition to annual servicing, it is important to perform regular visual inspections of the lift and report any issues or concerns to our service department as soon as possible.

Generally, a well-maintained and properly installed commercial lift can last anywhere from 15 to 25 years, or even longer in some cases.

However, factors such as heavy usage, improper maintenance, and wear and tear can significantly reduce the lifespan of a commercial lift. Regular maintenance and servicing, as well as prompt repairs and replacements of worn or damaged components, can help extend the lifespan and ensure optimal performance and safety.

  • Outdoor stairlifts:

These lifts are designed for outdoor staircases and can provide accessibility and convenience for individuals with mobility issues.

When selecting an outdoor commercial lift, it is important to consider the specific requirements of the outdoor environment, such as weather conditions, exposure to UV rays, and potential vandalism or theft.

The type of lift and how it is used, in addition to any particular requirements set forth by the manufacturer or local regulations, will all influence how frequently the lift needs to be inspected and maintained. A commercial lift should normally have a professional inspection and service performed at least once a year, and more frequently in high-traffic or high-use areas.

During a commercial lift inspection, our qualified technicians will typically perform a thorough visual and functional check of the lift, including:

  1. Checking all safety features and emergency systems
  2. Testing the lift under load conditions
  3. Inspecting and lubricating moving parts and components
  4. Checking and adjusting cables and pulleys
  5. Checking and adjusting the hydraulic or pneumatic system
  6. Replacing worn or damaged parts as necessary

Choosing the right capacity for a commercial lift depends on several factors, including the intended use of the lift, the number of passengers or occupants, and any specific requirements of the building or local regulations.

The capacity of a commercial lift is typically measured in terms of weight or number of passengers and can range from a few hundred pounds to several thousand pounds, depending on the type and size of the lift.

To determine the appropriate capacity for your commercial lift, consider the following factors:

  • Intended use:

Determine the primary purpose of the lift and the type of traffic it will serve. Will it be used for transporting goods, passengers, or both?

  • Number of occupants:

Consider the maximum number of occupants who will use the lift at one time, including any equipment or materials that may be transported.

  • Weight capacity:

Determine the maximum weight capacity of the lift and ensure that it can accommodate the weight of all occupants and any materials or equipment being transported.

  • Building requirements:

Check with local building codes and regulations to ensure that the lift capacity meets all necessary requirements for the building and intended use.

  • Future needs:

Consider any potential future needs, such as increased traffic or changes in building occupancy, and choose a lift with a capacity that can accommodate these needs.

Various weight capabilities, sizes, and configurations can be accommodated by customising any lift to meet the unique needs of the building and its intended use.

Handrails, power doors, and braille buttons are a few examples of additional accessibility elements that can be incorporated to maintain compliance with accessibility laws and enhance usability for those with mobility challenges.

  • Safety features:

Additional safety elements, such as as backup power, interlocks, and emergency lighting, can be added to any lift to guarantee dependable and safe operation in the case of an emergency or power loss.

  • Aesthetics:
