Lifts

Lifts installation is easier and faster than you may think. It doesn’t matter whether there is a lift in your building or not – we will suggest the right solution. We have many interesting bonuses to offer customers who wish to replace a lift installed by our competitors. We can improve the quality of your lift and significantly reduce the number of breakdowns.

We install new lifts as well as replace the existing ones

You don’t need any expert knowledge. Our advisors will explain everything to you and suggest the right solutions. The surveyor will check and measure the building free of charge. After the survey we will suggest the equipment suitable for you. We always try to give a few different options, which vary in terms of budget and innovation. We never compromise in terms of your safety.

Lifts make life easier, improve the comfort, allow accessibility. For people with limited mobility, they give the independence to carry on as normal. Assembly and maintenance do not necessarily have to be complicated and time-consuming. The lift installed in an attached internal or external shaft improve the quality of life and increase the value of the building.

Aberdeen

The company’s main premises and its main warehouse is located in Aberdeen (UK, Scotland). It’s 60 miles from Dundee, 127 miles from Edinburgh and 145 miles from Glasgow. Atlas Emergency Crew is a team working 24/7. We always recommend to our customers the equipment with the lowest failure rate. Our priority is users’ safety. However, minor breakdowns may happen even in the best of models. Due to us having our own warehouse with various parts and an efficient servicing team we are able to deal with most breakdowns in one day only, regardless of the lift's brand and type.

We visit our client’s premises on a regular basis to carry out reviews, maintenance or servicing of the equipment. You, your employees, and family can relax as our company, engineers and equipment have all the required security certificates. We work on authorial software and use automated technology which allows us to notice the equipment breakdown even before yourself. It happens that our customers find out that there is something wrong with their lift from the servicing engineer coming to their home or office.

Passenger lifts

Buildings have different sizes, characteristics and architecture. We are able to install a lift in every building type. With no further obligations we can assess the object regarding the possibilities for building the shaft which was originally not there. The size and shape of the staircase determines the shaft location.

We respect your peace of mind, time, and money

Our installation processes are designed in a way to reduce disruption in a normal operation in the building as much as possible. The project realisation does not usually exceed a dozen of weeks and during that time the building occupants can normally use their flats. Before the realisation starts, we consider the building characteristics and ascertain the schedule in a way which ensures the maximum safety for users and minimizes the burden of building works. Before passing the equipment to its users, we ascertain how comfortable the travel is, as well as carry out final security and functionality controls checks.

Through Floor Lifts

Through floor lift travels through the aperture in the ceiling/floor in order to get to the upper/lower floor. When you are downstairs, the lift can be moved quietly and discreetly back upstairs, leaving the whole space free from obstruction. It has therefore a minimal impact on the home living area which makes it ideal for domestic use, even in homes in homes where there is not a huge amount of space. It is also quite easy to reinstall in another property if you move home.

The huge advantage of through floor lift is space saving and at the same time having a very modern and highly customisable look. What is more, through floor lifts need less structural alterations than lifts or platforms which makes them more affordable. At the same time they are more convenient than stairlifts as there is no need for the wheelchair user to be moved from the wheelchair into the chair.

It is recommended that the size of the lift should be around 1m wide x 1.5m long however there are also more space saving options available. The cost of the lift depends highly on specific features and customisation. The installation is quite quickly, taking usually around 2 days, as there is no need for a pit.

Platform Lift

This kind of lift may be put in the middle between space saving of a through floor lift and the longevity of a traditional lift. Platform lift does include a shaft but it differs from the standard lift as only the platform and not the whole cabin travels up and down. Its main advantage when compared with the passenger lift is that it requires less structural changes and there are usually no constraints to get it installed in almost every home as only a pit of around 7.5cm is required.

If you would prefer the lift with a shaft, platform lift is recommended for homes with more limited space. It is also good solution for lower number of passengers (the maximum capacity is usually around 400 kg) and shorter distances, therefore it may be good choice for a private property. It is also cheaper than a proper passenger lifts but more expensive than a through floor lift.

Standard Passenger Lifts

The main difference between the standard lift and platform lift is that in the case of a lift, the whole cabin is going up, not only the platform. Just like with platform lifts, installation requires a shaft to be built as well as a winding mechanism. The lift is mostly recommended when it will be the main means of travelling between floors. It’s less likely to get it installed in a private house as it requires more space and severe structural changes.

Standard passenger lift is the largest construction from all of the above and it may not be even possible to get it installed in every building due to some constraints and requirements, as for example deep pit of around 1m. Structural changes also entail higher costs. On the other hand, it is most long-lived (it may last around 20 years), has a higher speed and capacity (usually over 350 kg) and more stops may be added than in the platform. All of those makes it a construction which adds a lot of value and modernity to the building and is a perfect choice for big houses.

Which models of lifts we recommend for you?

Below you will find our recommendations for the specific manufacturers. Every lift recommended by us meets the European and UK safety regulations and standards. You get the product of the highest quality, comparable with public administration buildings. We do not recommend every lift our company is familiar with. Our recommendations are based on the product quality, easiness to use as well as the cost of usage and parts.

If you have any questions or doubts, you can seek our advice at any time. It’s free of charge. Just contact us in any way convenient for you (please see the Contact tab) and tell us what you expect – we would like you to make the best choice possible.

Wheelchair lifts

Lifts for disabled people are an excellent solution when there is a need to travel between different levels but at the same time there are budget and building limitations. They are mostly installed in buildings adjusted for wheelchair users, as well as new-built ones. Wheelchair lifts are a great alternative for passenger platform lifts where there is a need for unlimited mobility for seniors and people being unable to travel up and down the stairs.

Wheelchair lifts mostly do not require any pit nor any additional machine room. The usage is safe and easy, and there is no training required to use them. They are functional, damage-resilient, and durable platforms which can easily serve as lifts. They meet the safety standards and have all necessary certificates.

Stairlifts

A stairlift is the best gift for people with limited mobility. As the time passes by, the human body does not work as well as it used to. Activities which seemed easy some time ago are getting more and more difficult. Due to these difficulties, many seniors are unable to independently get out of their house or flat. Installation of a stairlift may be a solution.

A stairlift is a lifting chair designed to enable travelling up and down the stairs. It may be navigated by the remote or the switch on the device – most commonly under the user’s elbow. As there is a huge variety of stairlifts, they may be installed in almost every staircase, both straight and curved, as well as outside the building.

The user sits on the chair, presses the button, and goes up or down. The speed is controlled by you. On the way you turn and here you are – on the first floor. The stairlift track may be at any shape, curve and angle which means we can install it even in difficult staircases, with a limited space for the parking. We allow stairlift’s customisation therefore you can choose colour and upholstery material so your stairlift would fit perfectly to the surroundings. Every stairlift installed by us has a quality warranty.

The stairlift motion is smooth, with no bumps and tremors. The chair has safety seatbelts and sensors which take care of your safety. The track the stairlift moves on is assembled onto the steps on the left or right. When the stairlift is not used, it may be folded so it does not disturb other users of stairs.

Goods lifts

Goods lifts are devices which enable quick and easy transport of products between floors. Our warehouses contain thousands of different devices therefore we provide lifts suitable for your industry as well as specification of the load – gastronomic lifts for carrying meals, lifts for forklift trucks and pallets or small lifts for documents.

The easy construction enables to modify the lift in terms of its measures and architectonic conditions of the building.

Our engineers have installed lifts for plates as well as lifts for passenger cars. The usage of the lift is safe and easy. All doors, gates and half-pipes are secured by an electromechanical lock system. An easy access while loading in and out makes the lift very difficult to damage. Installation with no building work? Seems impossible? It is possible in Atlas Goods Lifts. The lift works with a shaft pit as well as without it and there is no need for any machine room. The lift may be easily installed between the existing ceiling and floor.

Models recommended by our engineers are most advanced technologically. Almost all lifts are digitally controlled through the central computer unit which allows programming the cabin’s stops with millimetres accuracy. It also allows to configure the stops arrangement (?) in case of for example few lifts working in the same building (by dividing them for even and odd ones or up to the middle high of the building and above). It allows us to reduce the travel time leading to decreasing costs. Lifts are equipped with a centrifugal safety brake.

Comfort and usability

It was a long time ago when we said goodbye to huge warehouses full of documents, folders and equipment bought in the eighties. Our target is modernity, as well as convenient, useful, intuitive solutions. We prepared fully digital servicing processes, technical condition control systems and auditing processes. We have models which automatically inform Atlas Servicing Centre about abnormal operation of any lift component. We value feedback from our customers and keep updating our software in order to suit our needs.

We accomplished 96% of our projects in accordance with the prearranged schedule and budget. We installed thousands of lifts in buildings where there have never been any.

Quality

Our lift engineers are fully qualified and taught by the most senior members of our team who have been in the industry for over 10 years. All engineers are given professional trainings and refreshers at least on a yearly basis (?), carried out by equipment manufacturers, who are familiar with their own products and therefore can, in our opinion, provide the most professional advice. We support ambition, development and professional attitude as we believe those qualities allow us to provide the best possible service to our customers.
