Modern Lift Designs for Commercial Spaces

In the commercial lift industry, design influences user experience, accessibility, and even brand perception. This is where our commercial lifts come in, with models that are as visually appealing as they are efficient and safe.


Why Commercial Lift Design Matters

Clear and functional design is crucial in commercial settings, often serving as the first impression for clients, customers, and stakeholders. A well-designed lift exists as an extension of your brand and a statement of your commitment to quality, innovation, and user experience.

Our commercial lifts are cohesive in design, intuitive in operation, and comfortable in ambience – and it is these subtle yet impactful elements that contribute to a positive user experience, reinforcing your brand’s promise of excellence and attention to detail.

Our Design Philosophy

We begin our design process with a deep understanding of our client’s needs and the challenges they face. This client-centric approach allows us to create customised lift solutions that address specific areas of concern, whether that be spatial constraints, accessibility requirements, or sustainability goals.

Our lifts are designed to be easy to work with, from the initial consultation phase right through to installation and aftercare.

Commercial Features

What sets our commercial lift range apart are its tailored design features, including:


The first thing you will notice about our platform lifts is their seamless appearance. Our collection is designed to be visually appealing, with no compromise on functionality, with clean lines and a minimalist, Scandinavian aesthetic that complements any architectural style.


We incorporate the latest technology in every one of our commercial lifts to ensure that they are as efficient and reliable as possible. Features like energy-efficient operation, intuitive user interfaces, and smart safety measures are all a Gartec standard.

This modern approach extends to the user experience as well, offering smooth rides and quick response times that meet the demands of today’s most fast-paced commercial environments.


Whether you are looking for specific dimensions, unique finishes, or advanced technological features, we can tailor our lifts to meet your exact requirements. Our team works closely with you to understand your needs and challenges, offering bespoke solutions that align with your brand and operational goals.

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.”
