How Hydraulic Lifts Work

Hydraulic Lifts

Hydraulic lifts are a very common type of lift found in many buildings throughout the UK, from nursing homes, retail stores and apartments to offices and many other places in between. They are usually used in shorter buildings and travel at slower speeds. Hydraulic lifts can be used as both passenger lifts (including platform lifts and disabled lifts) and goods lifts (including vehicle lifts, dumbwaiters and freight lifts). Existing hydraulic lifts can be repaired and maintained by ACE Lifts and we are experts in carrying out lift refurbishments on all types of elevators.

The other main type of lift installation is a traction lift. If you’d like to see how the two types of lift installations compare check out our hydraulic vs. traction lift page.

Whatever the situation ACE Lifts can offer the best solution for your vertical transport needs. If you are interested in a hydraulic lift installation click here to contact us to arrange a FREE site survey.
