Whether looking for a replacement lift or new lift for a building project, selecting the right passenger lift for a housing project can be a challenge. Many different factors need to be considered carefully to ensure that the selected lift is right for the building, and the lift specification, despite sometimes a myriad of choice, options and configurations, does not cause long-term headaches for property managers.
Aesthetics and building regulations are not the only consideration. The number of people they will typically need to transport, the type of people using the lift and practical considerations such as space, building lifecycle and the number of floors are also vital factors to take note of during the specification process.
Increasingly, ticking off all the essential items on the checklist while remaining within budget is becoming more of a challenge. This is why Stannah Lifts has introduced a new range of entry-level passenger lifts that are not only cost-effective but also much easier for construction professionals to specify according to their needs. With open protocol systems to avoid service contract tie-ins and expensive switches, Stannah has long been a favourite for local authorities and housing associations – as case studies can testify
With a 150-year legacy of delivering passenger lifts to satisfied customers. A company that has been in business for this long knows how to constantly refresh products to stay ahead of construction trends and keep focused on its customers’ needs.
“We believe specifying the right passenger lift should be effortless and that no one should have to compromise between performance, dimensions and design,” explains Alastair Stannah, Managing Director at Stannah Lifts. “That’s why we’ve simplified our offering into the straightforward Maxilift range – for cost-effective, quick to specify and install traction lifts. And Xtralift, our extensive range of fully customisable traction lifts.”
“While all our lifts are built to the same high standards and comply with all regulations, we know that some projects require a simpler specification, delivery and installation process,” continued Alastair. “That’s why we’ve improved the manufacturing of our most cost-effective traction passenger lift and have focused on the most popular finishes and sizes with our Maxilift range. It is the perfect entry-level lift.”
The new core Xtralift range is also designed to cater for projects that require much more flexibility, such as fire-fighting lifts for hi-rise housing and lifts that require an element of robustness, such as vandal resistant Category 1 and 2 compliant lifts. Xtralift products give construction professionals more choice across lifts for between 4 to 46 passengers, serving up to 20 floors. Irrespective of the finish required, Stannah lifts remain as hard-wearing and energy-efficient as ever.
