Lift Products:

Northern Lifts Ltd supply, install, test, commission and CE Mark a complete range of passenger and goods lifts. Here you will find information on our range of lifts including:

Machine Roomless Lifts:

Machine Roomless Lifts do not require a separate motor room, and are absolutely quiet in operation beacuse of the silent gearless motor.  They are space saving, combining comfort and very low energy consumption and running costs.

Machine Roomless Lifts make optimum use of space. Machinery is within the shaft on top of the car (no plant room). With a capacity of up to 21 persons, travel speeds of up to 1.6 m/s and travel of up to 16 floors; machine roomless lifts are a great choice of lift.

We are now including Evacuation and Fire Fighting Lift specification packages using machine roomless lift technology.

Electric Traction Lifts:

Electric Traction Lifts have a capacity of up to 2500kgs with travelling speeds of up to 3.0 m/s and vertical travel of up to 40 floors. Because of this large capacity, electric traction lifts are ideal for heavy duty lift systems. The machinery for these lifts are contained in a separate plant room and they have a variety of applications including:

  • Heavy duty passenger lifts
  • Heavy duty goods lifts
  • Evacuation and Fire Fighting lifts

Hydraulic Lifts:

Hydraulic Lifts are available for standard low cost and specialist installations with capacity of up to 4000 kgs. With speeds of up to 0.6 m/s and suitability for internal and external use hydraulic lifts are ideal for the following uses:

  • Passenger Lifts
  • Hospital Lifts
  • Goods Lifts
  • Vehicle Lifts
  • Scenic Lifts including all glass models.

Prefabricated Lift Shafts:

Northern Lifts have recently become the first lift installation company in Scotland to supply, install and test a number of 8 person - 630kg machine roomless passenger lifts in Corus bi-steel lift shafts.

Prefabricated Lift Shaft

The prefabricated lift shafts arrive on site fully dimensioned with all door and control panel apartures preformed. Erection of the shaft units is a rapid process, enhancing the building programme.

The lift installation varies only slightly from a traditional build but the main advantages are accurate dimensions of the shaft +/- only a few millimeters, a clean wind and watertight environment allowing our engineers a trouble free  installation and ensuring any pre-finish snagging is kept to an absolute minimum.
