About Our Electric Platform Lift

Our electric lifting platforms will allow you to lift goods and people during work indoors or outdoors, with scissor lift tables that provide sustainable, versatile work platforms. Using an electric scissor lifting trolley from Gartec, you will get an energy-efficient, high-performance aerial work platform with an incredible 10,000 kilogram (kg) load capacity.

The flagship electric platform lift table in our range of commercial lifts is the hybrid hydraulic-electric Gartec Platform Scissor Lift, which has the following brilliant features:

  • Impressive platform height: Many electric lift tables are limited in their reach, but the Platform Scissor Lift can extend to heights of up to 9.5 metres. This is the equivalent of servicing two storeys and is ideal for the building industry and general construction.
  • Large platform capacity: With the 10,000 kg load rating you can take small and large loads up and down with complete ease. Large loads of materials such as bricks, timber or just bulky machinery and construction equipment are easy to lift with this design.
  • Energy efficiency: Electric scissor lifts are typically more efficient than hydraulic lift tables, but we make use of superb innovations to blend top sustainability with the superior lifting power of hydraulics, which results in dramatically lower running costs.
  • Destination alarms: Announcer or display options are available when you reach the desired extension level. For quicker work, the announcer option is a good idea, but the display-only destination function is still very fast and easy to read.
  • Remote or integral power pack options: You can either have the power pack internal to the scissor lift, but for a slimmer profile when in the fully-collapsed position a remote power pack option is also available.
  • Single, double and triple scissor measurements: If you need extra support, we can upgrade the scissors supporting the platform from one to two or even three, which will give you the maximum possible load capacity.
  • Safety edges: As a platform lift that raises quite high, the safety edge perimeter bars on the BC Platform stairlift are vital and an innovative feature that you are unlikely to see on other types of electric platform lifts.
  • Overload protection: Tested up to 130%, you can be sure that the lift will function to its highest-rated capacity and will never struggle to handle rated loads. This handy feature can make it much safer and provide greater peace of mind while at work.
  • Small footprint: Aiding the manoeuvrability of the electric platform lifting mechanism is the minuscule dimensions of the lift. This will get you the versatility you need to navigate tricky areas, such as spaces with uneven ground and awkward angles.
  • Fully customisable: Although the Platform Scissor Lift is a single model, there are considerable customisations you can make. From buttons to materials to colour schemes, we can add custom functionality to make sure you get the job done right.

We are innovators in exceptional platform lifting equipment, including scissor lifts that provide outstanding electric platform lifting capabilities in the most rugged, heavy-duty environments. Please feel free to get in touch with us to find out more and build a custom scissor lift design.

FAQs and Useful Information

The following are some common questions about electric platform lifts and our services:


What’s the difference between electric and hydraulic-powered scissor lifts?

Electric scissor lifts remove much of the environmental impact of a scissor lift. Hydraulic systems pump fluid through valves to create the force that lifts the platform, traditionally using fossil fuels. This innovation was a sensible one in the early days of mobile platform lifts, as they were similar to vehicles and thus used a similar fuel source to a car or lorry – notably diesel.

Modern innovations use electrically-powered motors to move and raise the lift, which has a significant benefit to the environment. This reduces emissions and creates a greater sense of control, with no shuddering or jolts from a petrol engine. So, although hydraulic lifts are a less efficient design, using electric motors is a good way to recoup some of that efficiency.


What is a platform scissor lift?

A platform scissor lift is a type of work platform that lies flat on a surface, or in a pit, that extends upwards. It gets the name ‘scissor lift’ from the X-shaped pattern the lifting mechanism creates as it extends. The two crosses of the mechanism, or the ‘X’, lie horizontally together in its folded position and then lift the platform at either end, when it is fully extended the X-shape will be fully visible – this is the greatest amount of support this design can use, so it cannot extend safely any further.
