When it comes to installing or replacing a service lift in your building, it is vital to make the right choice. The backbone of many work pipelines or companies, finding the right unit for the job can help cut down employee effort, make difficult tasks simple, and ensure that you make the most of the working day.
So, what exactly is a service lift, and what role can they place in a commercial, professional, or private environment?
What is a service lift?
Used in a range of professional environments, service lifts perform a number of specific roles in your day to day working life. These can range from small units that ferry and transport food and purchases to industrial sized options that can support workers, deliveries and more.
While many options are available for bespoke jobs, there are a number of dedicated units that can suit you your specific needs or even allow your teams to meet the challenges of expanding business remits or professional growth.
What options do I have?
When it comes to the right service lifts for your work, there are a number of choices available. These broadly include, but are not limited to-
Dumbwaiter Lifts: These space saving units are used to transport small items at speed. These are normally used in kitchens and hotels and are made from galvanised steel to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and reliability. These can range from bespoke units to larger models that can transport heavy loads or larger volumes of cargo with weight limits of 100kg.
Document Lifts: Used to transport paperwork, heavy office supplies, or mission-critical documents and hardware – these types of lifts are used to transport bulkier items around a building with ease. Commonly available in 5kg and 20kg models, these can help safely paperwork, with safe and easy to use doors and fully customisable to suit your space.
Trolley Lifts: The backbone of many bricks-and-mortar businesses, these are high performance goods lifts that peak at a 250kh capacity. This makes it perfect for hotels, restaurants, and other client-facing businesses that need to regularly move items between floors with speed and efficiency. Built with modularity in mind, these can be adjusted as needed to ensure physical security, tiered access, and optimised energy efficiency.
Combination Lifts: These two-tiered units act as a dual lift system, allowing for multiple types of goods to be safely transported together. This makes them ideal for food transport, ferrying lab materials, and allows for heating or refrigeration options to allow any goods to arrive in peak condition even with the longest of waits.
Under-Bar Service Lifts: As the name suggests, these are used to transport stock for bar staff from store to service. Designed with efficiency in mind, these use a small form factor that can accommodate any item from your stockroom without ruining your aesthetic. This also allows for safety with a robust design and hinged loading to prevent accidents.
