Commercial Lifts

View Our Wide Range of Commercial Lifts

At Level Access Lifts, we provide a wide variety of bespoke commercial lifts for both goods and passengers in commercial spaces– and even a select line of Dumb Waiters.

The range of versatile lift options available allows you to easily choose a passenger lift to suit all of your needs – not only in a practical sense but also in terms of aesthetics.

What is a Commercial lift?

A commercial lift is a vertical platform transportation system in public buildings to improve accessibility. It helps move people or goods between different floors, making it easier to get around in places like offices, hotels, and hospitals.

There are lots of different types of commercial lifts for public and commercial buildings to choose from, so it can be hard to know where to start.

From conventional passenger lifts and vertical platform lifts to goods-only and scissor lifts, the options are endless. Each type has a specific way of lifting based on factors like height, weight, platform sizes, safety features, and power.

Types of Lifts in Commercial Buildings

If you’re seeking a conventional passenger lift, why not consider the reliable, self-supporting Lyndhurst British-style lift? Its elegant design is perfectly customisable with colours of your choice, plus you can select any platform size to fit the space available.

Or, if you’re looking for bespoke passenger lifts, we recommend the Lymington Low Pit Passenger Lift, which requires minimal building requirements to install and features one-touch buttons. It’s a highly affordable option and also allows you to choose your ideal colours and finishes.

The extremely stylish Kensington Vertical Cabin is also a customisable platform lift design and offers a choice of automatic or manual doors that can either be single swing or sliding.

If you’re seeking something with greater capacity for public and commercial spaces, one of our superb Heavy Duty Large platform lifts will do just the job. It can carry up to eight people – with a weight limit of 1000kg – and its glazed doors are fire-resistant for up to an hour. Choose from a variety of platform lifts in different sizes to suit your needs.

We also offer a range of open lifts, including the elegant and low-maintenance Artico 7000, the compact Easylift that does away with the clutter of guides, masts, and columns, the stunning and subtle Scissor Lift, or the simple and user-friendly Open-Style Platform Lift.

For solutions to slightly more unusual access requirements, check out the incredible Ascendor PLK8 – a commercial platform lift that works on curved rails for wheelchair users. The brilliant “Hidden” Lift disguises itself perfectly as part of the floor until it is used, saving a great deal of space.

Of course, we offer superb goods-only lifts too, which can bear a huge maximum weight of 2000kg.

Staircase & Lift all in One Product

Flexstep – Staircase and Lift all in one product

Revolutionary, totally hidden and totally unique. Whilst idle, the Flexstep is a staircase with open treads and it is virtually impossible to see what lies within. However, once a wall button or remote control is pressed, it transforms into a vertical platform lift (sometimes referred to as a Steplift). This is the optimum solution for any application where the customer does not want to see a lift. It is also perfect for retail settings as it negates the need for both a lift and a fixed set of stairs (Flexstep occupies half of the floor space). Available with a choice of frame colours, handrails and tread inserts (including the customers own), Flexstep meets the needs of even the most discerning of clients.


Compact Open Style Lift

Easylift – Compact Open Style Lift for Indoor & Outdoor Applications

If you would prefer not see lift guides, masts or columns then Easylift is the perfect solution. Using the same proven technology as the award winning Flexstep, Easylift raises and lowers on four legs that are hidden within the side frames of the lift and appear under the lift during travel. This drive method means that Easylift is the narrowest of all Steplifts available today. Both the half height door on the lift platform and the one fixed on the upper landing operate automatically (powered) when the landing is reached. Easylift can be provided in a colour of your choice and there are also various glass tints available.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can a commercial lift benefit businesses?

Installing a commercial lift can benefit your business in many ways.

For example, a commercial wheelchair lift will allow wheelchair users to move between floors safely and comfortably – making your building much more accessible for employees and customers.

A commercial stairlift, on the other hand, will improve accessibility without taking up too much space. These have a compact footprint and feature a platform that can be folded away neatly against the wall, allowing others to use the staircase.

Commercial lifts, such as goods lifts and dumbwaiters, can be used to transport heavy or awkward items up and down the stairs. Whilst this reduces the need for manual lifting, it also increases productivity in the workplace.

To find out more about the benefits a commercial lift can bring to your business, get in touch with the team at Level Access Lifts on 023 8081 4924.

Which commercial lift is right for me?

Choosing a commercial lift can be difficult – especially with so many options available. But our experts can help.

One of the most important factors to consider is what your lift will be used for.

Commercial vertical platform lifts and wheelchair lifts can be used to transfer passengers with reduced mobility – either seated in their wheelchair or a folding seat.

Goods lifts and dumbwaiters can be used solely for goods and/or passengers and are most beneficial for busy environments, such as warehouses, factories, restaurants, etc.

Depending on where your commercial lift will go, you need to make sure there is ample space for it to be installed and used safely. It also needs to cater for the width and length of wheelchairs and have a suitable lifting capacity.

A commercial stair lift is an excellent alternative to a vertical platform lift. If your staircase has several turns or landings, a curved rail platform will ensure smooth operation, whereas a straight rail platform stair lift will suit most standard flights of stairs or wheelchair ramps.

If you’d like to discuss your requirements in further detail or receive expert advice, talk to the team at Level Access Lifts. We’ll happily assist you in choosing the best commercial lift for your needs, space and budget.

How long will a commercial lift take to install?

It can take a specialist anywhere between a few days and a few weeks to install a commercial lift at your premises, depending on the type and size of the lift.

The good news is, here at Level Access Lifts, we have worked with clients from various industries on projects of all sizes – so it’s fair to say we have vast experience when it comes to installing platform lifts.

Whether you’d like a commercial wheelchair lift, vertical platform or stair lift, our team will always discuss your requirements in further detail before making a start on the installation.

We’ll also talk you through the process from start to finish so you know what to expect.

Our expert installers will work as quickly and quietly as they can to ensure minimal disruption, but we refuse to sacrifice safety. That means, you can trust that your commercial platform lift will be installed safely and correctly – allowing you to use it for many years to come. To find out more, call 023 8081 4924.

How often does a commercial lift need servicing?

Most commercial lifts will need to be inspected at least once a year, but this can vary depending on how often your lift is used and the manufacturer’s guidelines.

For example, if your commercial platform lift is in a high-traffic area, such as a hospital or public building, it may need to be serviced more frequently to ensure uninterrupted operation.

Scheduling routine maintenance and servicing for your commercial lift can help to prevent potential issues and identify necessary repairs or replacements before they escalate into something much more serious. It will also ensure optimal performance, safety and longevity.

During a commercial lift service, an inspector will check and adjust the cables and pulleys as well as the hydraulic or pneumatic system.

They’ll also replace worn or damaged parts and test the safety features and emergency systems.
