Goods Lifts for Hospitals

Lödige in UK has been specified as the goods lift supplier for several private hospitals across the UK as part of a large project. 

The architect has selected Lödige for this project due to the bespoke requirements. The door sizes differ between floors which is not something can be achieved with standard designs. Lödige team in UK have worked closely with the architect for these projects to ensure that maximum productivity is achieved. The ESCORTA® goods with attendant lift that has been designed to suit, moves at a speed of 0.15 metres per second and carries a load of up to 1500 kg. This allows staff to move hospital beds and important medical equipment as quickly as possible. The ESCORTA® comes with a call and send option so the lift can be used to move goods with attendant as designed or to just move goods only. This type of goods lift comes with a fully cladded free standing shaft so no additional building work is required from the contractor. There is also no requirement for a machine room which saves valuable space.

The range of free standing goods lifts on offer move up to 3,000 kg and can travel up to 18 metres. All lifts have bespoke cabin and door sizing options to suit the customer’s needs. With no pit and minimal headroom required the SHERPA® and ESCORTA® goods lifts can be installed quickly and efficiently.
