About the installation

  • wall mounted within concrete lift shafts
  • dedicated scenic glass structure
  • traction-driven
  • lifts operate at a speed of 1.0m/s between four floors over a distance of 10650mm  

Located opposite the stairs, each 21-person passenger lift complements the light, spacious

design aesthetic whilst addressing the demanding environment: 

  • Double height stainless steel bump rails
  • Exteriors, full-depth architraves and call stations finished in satin stainless steel, with the interior car walls finished in a textured, linen stainless steel
  • Suspended down lighter ceilings, car extractor fan, hand rails, rear-wall half-height mirrors 
  • Two opposite facing car operating panels with Braille pushes
  • Black, studded, non-slip PVC floors

Low noise, energy use and running costs

The Stannah Xtralift’s oil- and vibration-free high-performance, gearless traction drive ensures a smooth ride.

Low noise, energy use and running costs are ideal for increased usage and higher travels.

  • no need for a machine room, as all the necessaries are contained in a small cabinet

Stannah worked with both the customer and project requirements, providing the supply and test of lifting beams and full depth landing architraves for additional robustness to the large passenger lifts. 

Chris Allen, Projects & Assets Manager at Huntingdonshire District Council:

“The Stannah Xtralifts represent excellent value for money and provide the heavy duty, high volume people movement needed in this distinctive, busy car park servicing the growing retail needs of Huntingdon town centre. Reassurance is part of the package with a 24-hour, 365-day after-care service courtesy of the local branch of Stannah Lift Services.”
