Gartec supplies the highest platform lift in UK

Gartec supplies the highest platform lift in UK

The visitors centre at the tip of Wales’ highest mountain, Snowdon, turned to Gartec to provide a short travel lift to go in a tight alcove for less able visitors.

The Gartec 7000 platform lift fit the bill, with a 410kg limit and wheelchair suitable sizes without a huge footprint. The modular parts were ideal for lightweight transport to the top.

The centre had a small alcove space near the railway stop, so the 50mm pit and minimal building works were ideal.

Reliability was vital as getting to the summit for a breakdown would take longer than normal. The minimal maintenance and simple mechanism was ideal.

The rip out and installation were completed by Knowsley Lifts, and the lift was in, on and ready to use in just 2 days. The ceiling was raised slightly and the original pit widened, with no problems.

A bold red finish makes a statement next to the Snowdon Mountain Railway stop and stairs, and fits the small space perfectly.
