Architect: Heritage Icon Made Accessible

This is our most recent installation at Windsor Castle.  Working with the architect this lift has been designed to match adjacent balustrades with vertical bars and ball head finials.

It has been finished in Windsor Green paint and York Stone has been laid in the platform to complement the flooring elsewhere.  This lift provides access to the children’s education facility in a newly refurnished part of the property.

Modernisation of Reception

Located in the heart of The City, this newly remodelled reception area includes state-of-the-art technology and design.

This new platform lift installation compliments the rest of the reception perfectly.

It provides access to the lower ground floor level and passenger lift lobby using a low profile Lyfthaus Autograph model finished in matt texture paint RAL9005.

Let’s Get Creative

We work with the finest architects in Britain with all types and styles of built environment.  We asked 20 of our top architectural clients what was the No. 1 reason they chose lyfthaus.  The compelling answer was our bespoke capability. This should not be a surprise as its also a very important factor for our team who are tailor made specialists with many years experience.

Lyfthaus have built a team of creative people with backgrounds in architecture, construction, engineering, product development, project management and creative design.

Together we make the most beautiful spaces beautifully accessible.

Heavy Load

One of the many advantages of using a super stable twin cylinder scissor mechanism as our principle method of elevation is that it also has a mammoth 2000Kg capacity.

Whilst compliance dictates that 500Kg should be the maximum operating capacity for special applications such as bariatric use or for dual DDA and goods requirements we can include the option of a 1000Kg lifting capacity.

Bow Street Hotel

This bespoke design captures the character of this 266 year old former Police Station, Jail and Court House beautifully.  Now a stunning five star hotel in London’s Covent Garden, this lift can be found in the entrance lobby and is intended to provide a glamorous reminder of the buildings infamous residents which include the Kray Twins, Dr Crippen and General Pinochet.

The lift reflects this heritage perfectly with chemically blackened steel with a bronze lacquer, leaded glass and granite slabs to the platform.  The lift is used for disabled access and luggage transportation.

Another unique platform lift designed to suit the very specific requirements of this grade 1 ecclesiastical heritage property. The shaft features a bronze patchwork decorative design using staggered tiles of differing sizes to great effect. Full height glass doors highlight the scissor mechanism beyond and draw natural light from above. The sequential vertical steel ribs within the shaft exaggerate the height which reflects the grandeur of the vast nave to which you are transported. This entire lift including the triple scissor mechanism was delivered in manageable sized component parts and then reassembled in the basement. The results are stunning.
