Case Study: A Stannah Goods Lift Tames A Flying Tiger!
It takes a strong goods lift such as the Stannah Trolleylift to tame a busy stockroom – especially when it’s in the Basingstoke branch of Flying Tiger Copenhagen, the Danish quirky homeware chain and roaring Scandi-design success story.
Stannah’s full-height roll-cage lift makes light work of shifting a high turnover of goods between below-stairs stockroom and ground-floor store – no mean distance of 5.050 metres – saving people’s backs, and meeting all Health and Safety Executive manual handling requirements.
With 11 goods lifts under it’s belt, it was Stannah’s pedigree with Flying Tiger Copenhagen that clinched the deal when it came to specifying a goods lift for the Basingstoke outlet, as Russell Husbands, Partner at Quantity Surveyor Partnership, Appleyard and Trew confirms:
"Stannah has already earned its stripes with Flying Tiger Copenhagen, installing this retail goods lift model in their Bromley and St Albans outlets, so we had no qualms in going direct to Stannah for the goods handling requirements of the Basingstoke outlet of this Danish variety chain.”
Hydraulically driven, the Trolleylift carries up to 500kg in a roomy car (1200W x 1300D x 2000H) accessed by a hinged door and concertina shutter gates – a dual interface that keeps the goods super-safe in transit.
All elements of the lift car are finished in durable stainless steel, with chequer-plate flooring and fully automatic call-and-send controls at each landing entrance to make the lift perform to order.
As with all Stannah lift products, the roll-cage lift is covered by Stannah’s comprehensive lift servicing plan, with four service visits and out of hours service cover in the first year by the Southern England branch of Stannah Lift Services, part of a nationwide network providing comprehensive lift servicing and support.
