An unrivalled range of lift and elevator solutions, with unrivalled service

We offer passenger lift services right across the UK to meet any vertical requirement, from the standard to the bespoke, with every type and style available.

Our passenger lifts can be supplied either individually, or as part of multiple lifts in a major development. Working with you to ensure each one is suited to its travel, traffic, situation and finishes to suit. Our lifts offer a choice of traction elevators and hydraulic systems, internal and external, with and without a motor room, to fit all sizes of lift shafts and structures.

All our lifts conform to the EN81 20 and EN81 50 lift standards for design and manufacture, replacing the defunct EN81 1 and EN81 2 lift standards. This means you can rely on us for a safe lift installation and ongoing lift safety.

Our service is tailored to our customers. Working with consultants and architects to deliver the perfect lift specification; with construction, professionals to help deliver a tight project deadline; with existing lift owners to help with both new lifts and replacements.

We support you every step of your project – from building design to construction and throughout the lifetime of the lift.

Features and benefits

Energy efficiency & exceptional performance

Our lifts contribute to the building’s overall energy efficiency, have a minimal environmental impact and are designed to deliver ride comfort year after year. So you can get BREEAM points and low life-cycle costs.

No servicing tie-ins

Our open protocol systems mean no costly tie-ins. When you specify a Stannah lift we don’t tie you into using us for maintenance and repair, instead, we aim to deliver a quality service that means you choose to stay with us.

Safety & Standards

Safety is our utmost priority. So we make the sure every lift is certified according to the Lift Directive 2014/33/EC, fulfils all the relevant British Standards and is equipped with the latest passenger safety features.
