Goods Only Lifts

ACE Lifts provides a variety of services for goods only lifts. These include lift maintenance, repairs, refurbishments and installations, as required by our customers. If you would like information regarding lifts that transport people, please visit our passenger lifts page.

The term ‘goods only lift’ encompasses a large range of lift types, including dumbwaiter lifts, vehicle lifts and freight lifts. As the name suggests, they are for goods only rather than passengers and therefore have some different characteristics (although the actual machinery is fairly similar). Some features of goods only lifts are not having buttons inside the lift, often the walls are made from heavy duty materials, they may have manual rather than automatic doors and they do not have to comply with DDA regulations or safety regulations relating to passenger lifts.

Some features of goods only lifts are:

  • not having buttons inside the lift, given that nobody will need to operate it from inside the lift car
  • often the walls are made from heavy duty materials to allow for the higher levels of wear expected from transporting goods
  • they may have manual rather than automatic doors to ensure that doors are opened only when the user is ready to do so
  • they do not have to comply with DDA regulations or safety regulations relating to passenger lifts

There are a variety of types to choose from to suit your needs.

Dumbwaiter Lifts

Dumbwaiter lifts are a popular solution for when small loads require transporting from floor to floor. The most common use for this is in restaurants.

These are a popular product and can be either traction or hydraulic. ACE Lifts can provide lift services, including lift maintenance, repairs, refurbishments and installations for any type of dumbwaiter lift.

Vehicle Lifts

Vehicle lifts are growing increasingly popular in the UK as the construction of multi-storey buildings is becoming more common, particularly in cities. They can be a great way to add value to a building and make good use of space. ACE Lifts can provide lift services, including lift maintenance, repairs, refurbishments and installations for any type of vehicle lift.

Freight Lifts

Freight lifts (or general goods only lifts) are very common, particularly in retail applications and storage facilities. They can be a good solution for moving heavy objects safely. ACE Lifts can provide lift services, including lift maintenance, repairs, refurbishments and installations for any type of vehicle lift.
