A Stannah Goods Lift Solves Bike/Bin Storage in City Office Refurb

  • 1 May 2019

A Stannah Goodsmaster 1000 CD Plus goods attendant lift was recently chosen to help move bicycles and bins in the revamped Kings House office building in central London.

The 1000kg through-car lift moves bicycles and a 1100 litre wheelie bin between the ground floor and the basement storage facility in this extensively reconfigured and refurbished building located on King Street.

Marketing Manager, Jo Monro, explains: “Stannah’s heavy duty goods lifts are an increasingly popular choice with architects and specifiers when planning the storage of bikes and bins. In Kings House, our Goodsmaster supports the aesthetic, smooth-running and security of the six workspaces ranged over six floors, all with 24-hour access.”

The Goodsmaster CD Plus was specified by international multi-disciplinary consulting engineers Cundall. Graham Barker, Director of Vertical Transportation, explains: “Due to existing site restrictions, the provision of pit depth for the lift was a significant issue. Cundall developed a design which called for a goods lift complete with attendant control facility. Following a competitive process, Stannah was appointed to provide the building with their Goodsmaster Plus CD product.”

Stannah goods lifts offer many benefits, including coming in various sizes to accommodate two or three residential wheelie bins, with larger units for apartment buildings and commercial use.

The lift also offers double protection during travel with its concertina and shutter doors, as well as simple-to-use constant-pressure buttons, an emergency stop button, and a grab rail. 

Hard-wearing grey baked enamel with heavy duty chequer-plate steel floors, wood buffer panels – built to withstand daily bumps and bashes – also add to the benefits of the lift.

Plus, the through-car has been configured to maximise versatility and has been installed within its own rapidly erected, self-contained steel structure.

The lift offers an ideal solution for locations where headroom is limited due to the traction chain drive of the lift combining increased efficiency and power with low-cost maintenance. In addition, the lift platform can be virtually the same size as the load, and the goods attendant lift also carries up to two people.

As with all Stannah lift products, the Goodsmaster CD goods lift is covered by Stannah’s comprehensive lift service plan, which includes four service visits in the first year, with continued lift maintenance by the London and South East (Dartford) branch of Stannah Lift Services, part of a nationwide network providing comprehensive lift servicing and support.
