Lifts for residential developments and social housing
Robust, reliable, future-proof lifts that improve access – and make tenants feel valued
For a housing association, local authority, or affordable home developer, providing constant access is a priority – so lifts within social housing need to be reliable, easy to clean, and resistant to anti-social behaviour.
We help housing providers select, install, refurbish, and maintain reliable, cost-efficient lift access with the minimum of fuss. For example:
- Passenger lifts combining a great first impression with safe, hard-wearing details
- Platform lifts to improve access in smaller units and tight spaces
- Free-standing lift structures which minimise structural load and reduce build time
- Step and stair lifts to provide wheelchair access over one or more flights of stairs
Hard-working, vandal-resistant lifts can be attractive too
A tough, functional lift is important – but residents should also be able to take pride in their surroundings. At Stannah, we can help you achieve both with our wide range of lifts. For example, our passenger lift in London’s award-winning affordable housing development, Victoria Wharf, combines an attractive interior design with a graffiti-proof finish, and anti-slip wood effect floor. As a result, Westminster Community Homes and Westminster City Council are able to give residents a safe lift experience with a premium feel – while also protecting their asset from damage.
Robust goods lifts for bike and waste storage
Heavy-duty goods lifts, like our Goodmaster CD Plus, are an increasingly popular choice among residential developers designing underground cycle and waste bin stores.
Moving bike racks, wheelie bins, 360-litre bins and Euro bins underground gives a fast way to improve security, the visual environment, and ground-level space. Vandalism, littering and odour are also measurably reduced. You’ll find more details in our guide to specifying bicycle and waste management lifts.
Rapid-response call-out from considerate engineers
Our experienced lift maintenance engineers understand the importance of respecting residents and their surroundings – whether it’s social housing or a private home. Residents at our major lift refurbishment at Gunnersbury Court called us “a pleasure to have around”.
