The Aritco PublicLift Access is our most popular lift model and has the safety features, low energy consumption and customisations you expect from a commercial lift. Larger platform sizes can be fully Part M and Equality Act compliant (please speak to a member of our team) and can be installed in less than one week.

These platform lifts are our most frequently installed models for schools, office blocks, hospitals, care homes and retail due to size, weight capacity and compliance. For external installations, see the Aritco PublicLift Access Outdoor option, and for goods and passenger, please see the Aritco PublicLift Access Goods option. If you require more information on lifts for wheelchairs or disabilities please read here.

Our patented screw and nut drive system offers a safe, quiet and environmentally friendly solution. Completely self-contained, the Aritco PublicLift Access eliminates the need for a separate machine room (read more about Machine Room Less Lifts here) or pump box housing, also ideal for restricted or listed buildings.

With a nationwide network of specialist engineers, a typical Aritco PublicLift Access installation takes just 3 days. The lift uses a modular, free standing frame structure to reduce delivery and installation time, needing only a load bearing footprint and no major building works on site.

All our lifts are supplied with a 12-month warranty as standard, and we offer a range of platform lift servicing options which can be tailored to suit your specific requirements.

Vertical platform lifts are contained within a shaft. This shaft has guide rails along two corners of the shaft which help to guide the carrier, which is generally an L shaped platform attached to a mast. When using an open platform lift, the walls remain in the same place as the platform raises or lowers.

There is a wide range of electric, hydraulic, and mechanical platform lifts, including enclosed cabin lifts, industrial vertical platform lifts, and even hidden platform lifts. Cabin platform lifts work in the same way as normal platform lifts but, rather than having an L shaped carrier, the platform is contained within a box to give the feel of a conventional lift.

In order to use an open platform lift, applying continuous pressure to the up or down buttons will allow the user to reach their destination. From the outside, using a single touch button will call the lift to the floor. For enclosed cabin lifts, rather than having to apply continuous pressure, a single touch button will be found inside that can be used to bring the user to the correct floor.

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.”
