Case Study: Stannah Levelmaster low-rise platform goods lift – solving stock flow in a split-level storeroom
A Stannah Levelmaster low-rise platform goods lift proved the best solution for shifting boxes in the split-level storeroom of the Bromley outlet of Tiger Stores, a leading Danish retail chain offering a wide range of affordable homeware, toys, stationery, toiletries and accessories.
The Levelmaster unites two floors, moving goods over a distance of 1055mm between ground level delivery and lower ground storage. Finished in durable black baked enamel (RAL 9005) with upper front-facing glass panels for visibility, the step lift brings robust service to a tough stock-handling environment.
Access on the upper level is via a space-saving, half-height, left-hand hinged door, with a double-hinged swing door at lower ground level. Safety and grip during transit is further ensured via wall-facing, half-height chequer-plate sides and floor.
The Stannah Levelmaster carries a rated load of up to 2000kg, and the lift is supplied in a self-supporting structure for quick, easy installation with the minimum of builder’s work.
The Levelmaster was specified by Robert Walsh, Project Coordinator of HLP UK, a leading UK multi-disciplinary architectural services company: “We opted for the Stannah Levelmaster as it best suited the site’s constraints. The Tiger Store is located within a busy pedestrianised high street with no frontal access for deliveries. Goods arrive through the shopping mall service yard at the rear of the building. The storeroom is split-level from the service yard and the lift had to be able to take palleted loads between two levels, a nominal but important distance when it comes to the management of frequent, heavy, bulky stock.”
This is just the latest of 8 Stannah lift installations across Tiger’s UK stores, currently running at 29 but expanding fast.
Installing, owning and operating a Levelmaster low-rise platform goods lift helps owners to meet Manual Handling Regulations and improves the logistics within the building – all with the reassurance of continued product service and maintenance by the local branch of Stannah Lift Services (3 visits per year), part of a nationwide network providing 24 hour, 365 days a year support.
