Service Lift Installation

The installation of your service lift will vary slightly depending on the specifications. They will use either a shaft design, a wall-mounted design, or a service lift with a surrounding cage. We will also assess, clean and prepare the site as thoroughly as possible for a fast installation once the work begins.

When we install lifts you can expect the following from our incredible team:

  • Full compliance with all commercial regulations and standards
  • Rigorous testing, maintenance and first-time setup
  • Minimal time spent on site

We will fit and install the lift with aesthetics in mind, too, as we always offer attractive installations; this is important for service lifts in environments such as hotels, as the lifts often interact with public-facing areas. Take a look at our case studies for further information.
