Commercial Lifts – High Functionality and Aesthetic Appeal

Gartec is dedicated to integrating functional innovation with contemporary design. Our commercial lifts are designed to support architects in integrating essential vertical transport solutions into a variety of architectural environments effectively and discretely.


Finding Platform Lifts That Tick All the Boxes

Architects often face the challenge of integrating essential building elements such as lifts without compromising the aesthetic integrity of their designs. This task is complicated by stringent regulatory requirements and the diverse functional needs of modern buildings. 

Our range of commercial lifts is engineered to address these issues directly. Our lifts are compliant with the latest safety and accessibility standards and are designed to complement your architectural specifications.

Hand-In-Hand Aesthetics and Functionality

Our entire range of commercial lifts has been designed with a strong emphasis on style. They feature customisable finishes that allow architects to match or contrast with the existing design of any building, with options ranging from subtle, neutral tones to bold, statement-making colours – all available in a variety of textures and materials that ensure durability without sacrificing style.

Designs That Fit Anywhere

The profiles of our commercial lifts are sleek and designed to minimise visual disruption. The engineering behind each model focuses on reducing the spatial footprint, enabling installation in tight spaces without major renovations or visible structural changes. This sleekness extends to the integration of the lifts into building designs, where the emphasis is on maintaining clean lines and uninterrupted flow throughout the space.

Achieve Functional Minimalism

For projects requiring a minimalist approach, our lifts offer options such as flush-mounted doors and hidden mechanisms that preserve the architectural integrity of both historic and contemporary spaces. The hardware and components are designed to be unobtrusive, ensuring that the lifts complement rather than detract from existing designs.

Our range also features advanced engineering solutions such as the patented screw and nut drive system, which eliminates the need for a traditional machine room. This design reduces the physical footprint of the lift installation, allowing for more flexible design options within projects. The system is also inherently safer and requires less maintenance, which contributes to the long-term reliability and operational efficiency of the lift.

Be Sure Your Design Complies

Each lift in our range is designed to meet European safety regulations, including EN 81-41 for platform lifts and the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. This commitment ensures not only the safety of end-users but also facilitates compliance with local building codes and accessibility requirements, crucial for architectural integration.

Expert Technicality

The technical design of Gartec commercial lifts also includes features such as emergency battery lowering and automatic mechanical diagnostics. These features ensure that the lifts remain operational even during power outages, enhancing safety and reliability. The incorporation of modular components and prefabricated elements also simplifies the installation process, significantly reducing the time and disruption typically associated with lift installation.

Our Fully Customisable Commercial Lifts

Our commercial lift range can be tailored in terms of dimensions, accommodating specific constraints, and building layouts. This allows architects to integrate functional lifts without compromising the design of their projects.

In terms of materials and design, we provide a range of finishes that include glass, polished metals, and custom RAL colours to match or enhance the building’s interior design. Control systems are also customisable, from simple push-button operations to sophisticated touch screens, integrating seamlessly into the overall design and user experience.



Our Testimonials

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.”

Barbara, Stourbridge

“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.”

Keith Perfect, Bellwood Homes

Collaborate With Us On Your Next Design

We are committed to a deeply collaborative process with architects from the outset of planning through to the completion of installation. This begins with detailed consultations where our team engages with architects to fully understand the specific requirements and constraints of their projects. Throughout the planning and implementation phases, we provide expert advice on compliance, design integration, and technical specifications.

After installation, we continue to offer comprehensive support services to ensure that the lifts operate reliably and efficiently. This includes routine maintenance, technical support, and emergency services, ensuring that any issues are promptly and effectively resolved.
