Gartec provided their 7000 platform lift as part of renovations at Framlingham Castle, Suffolk.
Framlingham Castle, an 11th century listed fort nestled in the countryside of Suffolk, has been undergoing a series of renovations – including a café, shop and new exhibition.
The new exhibition required an access lift, but - across all the works - there were restrictions due to the castle being a listed building. The installation needed to be carried out with minimal damage to the surrounding buildings and around the work of other contractors. The lift also needed to be stylish but in-keeping with its surroundings.
A Gartec 7000 platform lift fit the bill perfectly as it had minimal fixing points and a modular shaft, meaning no scaffolding was required. The lift also has a large platform for wheelchair access as well as a key lock for safety.
The installation took just 3 days, and Framlingham Castle then added the frosted coating for privacy and style.
The lift can easily be demounted if required when phase 2 of the renovation begins.
The new café, shop and educational exhibition look fantastic, and the lift is a stylish and functional addition that is great for prams and wheelchair users.
