Meet Your Client’s Needs With Our Tailored Commercial Lifts

Architects face the crucial task of aligning their designs with specific client needs and detailed design briefs. Gartec is dedicated to supporting this endeavour by providing fully customisable commercial lift solutions – designed to meet a wide range of architectural demands and client preferences, ensuring each project achieves its unique functional and aesthetic goals.


Evolve Alongside the Needs of Your Client

Clients increasingly expect facilities to be fully accessible to people with disabilities, in line with regulations such as the Equality Act in the UK, and there is a growing need for adaptable features that can be updated or modified without extensive redesigns or interventions. This requires a thoughtful design that incorporates lifts and other accessibility features without compromising the building’s visual appeal or architectural integrity.

Our customisable platform lifts are engineered to meet these needs, providing options that enhance user experience and maintain design continuity, ensuring that every installation is both compliant and visually appealing.

The Custom Options Offered By Gartec

We offer a comprehensive range of adaptable options that cater to the diverse needs of architectural projects, ensuring each lift installation aligns perfectly with strict design briefs. Architects can choose from a variety of materials, including glass for a sleek, modern look, or brushed steel for a more robust, industrial aesthetic. Custom RAL colours are also available, allowing lifts to either stand out as a feature or blend seamlessly into the existing design palette of the building.

In terms of dimensions and technology, Gartec’s platform lifts are designed to fit precisely within the architectural plans, accommodating unique space limitations or design configurations. This flexibility is evident in models like the Aritco PublicLift Access, which offers up to 13 metres in travel height and can be equipped with up to three doors per floor, tailored to client specifications for functionality and access.

Future-Forward Technologies

The technology integrated into these lifts, such as user-friendly touchscreen controls and advanced safety features, can also be customised. For instance, the Aritco 9000 features options for enhanced user interaction and additional safety, making it ideal for environments such as retail spaces and educational buildings, where usability and accessibility are non-negotiable.

How We Ensure Seamless Design Integration

Gartec lifts are expertly designed to integrate into a wide range of architectural styles, ensuring that each installation complements the aesthetic and structural integrity of the building, whether it’s a modern commercial space or a sensitive historical renovation.

For contemporary designs, these commercial models can feature glass panels and minimalistic metal finishes that echo the clean lines and open spaces typical of modern architecture. In traditional renovations, Gartec’s ability to customise lifts becomes particularly valuable. Lifts can be designed with finishes that match the existing woodwork or stonework, integrating modern technology discreetly into heritage settings without visual disruption.



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

Our Technical Support Offers and Collaboration Potential

Gartec provides comprehensive technical and design support to architects throughout the planning, customisation, and installation phases of each project. From the outset, the team collaborates closely with architects, offering detailed consultations that include technical assessments, design discussions, and solution modelling. This process helps to identify the most suitable lift options based on the specific constraints and objectives of each project. 

During the customisation phase, our dedicated engineers can work hand-in-hand with architects to tailor the necessary aspects of the lift’s design – from dimensions and materials to advanced technological features – and once the design is finalised, we continue to offer support during the installation phase, overseeing the integration of the lift into the building to guarantee seamless functionality and design coherence.
