Home Lifts You Can Trust for Safety and Reliability
Installing home lifts on any property comes with the immense responsibility of ensuring full safety and reliability for its users, and for over 25 years, our engineers have specialised in installing residential lifts that adhere to the most rigorous British safety standards.
Safety and Reliability as One
Lifts that do not meet safety standards or break down frequently can lead to injuries, entrapments, and even fatalities. You may trust your own skills, but if a lift accident occurs, your reputation and business will suffer irreparable damage.
Beyond ethical concerns, you also take on substantial legal liability when integrating home lifts. If an unsafe lift you installed or recommended results in an accident, clients can take legal action leading to massive financial penalties. Even one mistake can permanently damage your business and professional standing.
This is why safety and reliability should be non-negotiable when evaluating lift solutions. Working with engineers who properly certify lifts, use proven technology, perform ongoing maintenance, and train users, is the only way to safeguard your reputation. This is where the experienced Gartec team can help.
Our Safety-First Approach
Safety is engineered into every step of our design and installation process:
- Safety Features Across All Models: Our home lifts come equipped with safety features like emergency stop buttons, alarm systems, battery backups, door obstruction controls, and overload sensors. Safety lighting, grab bars, and seats can also be added.
- Proactive Maintenance: After installation, we perform regular examinations and maintenance to identify and prevent potential mechanical or electrical issues. If any safety concerns arise, they are addressed immediately.
- Client Education: We provide full training to homeowners on proper lift safety protocols, and this includes key instructions like weight limits, door operation, emergency features, and maintenance needs. Ongoing support is also offered to keep users informed.
Our diligent approach covers all bases, from design and installation to maintenance and user training. Architects and builders can feel fully confident that our home lifts will perform reliably for years, with safety at the forefront.

We had a limited budget and Gartec worked out the very best option and price for us, they ensured we got the correct people involved regarding the design of the hole for the lift to travel through, and we duly placed the order. We had some misgivings about what we ordered as we were concerned about how it would look when it was installed and how obtrusive it would be, indeed we decided to amend the order so the lift had glass sides and wow! How glad we are that we did. The communication was first class all through and the aftercare has been very good.
I examined the market for a suitable lift for our premises, and Gartec had a lift that would fit into our small bar area and would not be too obtrusive, hence making contact and requesting someone visit to look at the site and advise on the best option for us, we are a grade 2 listed building and were having problems getting the planning permission for the lift to be installed where it would serve us best, Gartec made contact and arranged to visit us. Gartec was very professional and most helpful, and much more interested in getting it right for us than any of the other suppliers.
The cricket club is currently being used as a COVID vaccination centre and the lift is essential for those of limited mobility. Hence it was important to get the work done as soon as possible and on a day when the centre wasn’t in use. We’re very grateful for the swift response from Gartec, the service engineer was also very competent and helpful.

“We turned to Gartec, and their innovative moving floor design. It was an attractive and successful option taking only 6 days to fit. The safety features include a remote lock and a Smart app operation from an iPhone, so parents can ensure no trapped fingers or ‘junior joyriding’ – perfect for a family house. We have been impressed with both the product and professional installation, and would certainly consider Gartec again for another Octagon home.”
Anton Dummer, Octagon Developments
“Both our Architect and Building Manager found Gartec Home professional, organised and proactive, and the installation process went smoothly. All the people my husband and I have dealt with have been helpful, and any queries dealt with quickly. The end result is totally integral to the build and reflects the modern architectural style.”
Hazel Coomber, Brentwood
“I would like to say that everyone at Gartec has been very helpful. The lift is my lifeline and enables me to live here.”
“The Gartec Home team were friendly and knowledgeable, they kept me informed and even tidied everything up at the end!”
Mary Jones, Abingdon
“Gartec offered a quick turnaround using a high-quality lift solution. It was important to have lifts that would complement the design and quality of the rest of the houses. The Gartec lifts offered this and only required a short installation period carried out by two friendly engineers. I am pleased with the overall look of the lifts installed and they will contribute to the townhouses being desirable to a bigger market. We look forward to working together again.”
