Commercial lifts you can rely on

The lifts you choose will depend on a variety of factors. Most commercial buildings, such as department stores and shopping centres, may require you to install a range of lifts to help customers and employees navigate their way around the premises with ease. In most cases, you will also be required to install service lifts or goods passenger lifts to make sure employees are able to manoeuvre produce across the building without impacting customers and their experience in the store/shopping centre.

Service Lifts

Utilised by clothing companies, commercial warehouses, shopping centres and supermarkets alike, service lifts provide an efficient way for commercial businesses to transport goods deemed dangerous without having to lift them manually.

At Sheridan Lifts, we understand the importance of having a top-quality service lift as a part of the building renovations. This is why our project managers and engineers work in tandem with you to create a service lift to suit your needs, including commercial platform lifts, commercial goods lifts, access lifts, exceptional load capacity lifts, durable freight elevators, low energy consumption lifts and many, many more.

Whether you are looking for a dumbwaiter lift (perfect if your shopping centre has a restaurant section) or a large-scale vertical platform lift, our engineers have the industry knowledge and expertise to design the service lift you need.

If you have a specific design in mind, we have the capabilities to install a bespoke lift based on your design specifications. Discuss this with your project manager, and we will see how we can make the design vision you have for the lift come to life.

All of our service lifts are installed with the necessary regulations in place. This includes health and safety regulations and manual handling regulations. This gives you the assurance that all of our lifts are safe to use and designed to last.

So, what are you waiting for? Install a service lift today.


Goods Passenger Lifts 

Most commercial entities will require a goods passenger lift. Be it a busy shopping centre or an independent shop, you may need to transport goods from the loading bay area to the shop floor. Often these goods come in bulk, making them unsafe to carry on foot. This is where you will benefit from a goods passenger lift.

A goods passenger lift enables users to move goods and equipment without the additional risks of injuries. Installing lifts in places, where only employees may use them will save you space. This is because a goods passenger lift can be used in the same manner as a standard passenger lift when it is not transporting goods.

Passenger Lifts

Most shopping centres will require customers to travel from one floor to another in order to access certain shops. In this instance, installing a commercial passenger lift will be beneficial.

One of the more known types of lifts, passenger lifts, are used across the majority of sectors we have worked with at Sheridan Lifts. Created to ensure visitors to the building are able to move from one floor to another passenger lift effectively, conventional passenger lifts are popular in all kinds of commercial buildings.

At Sheridan Lifts, our passenger lifts come in a variety of sizes. If you have a certain design in mind at the time of the installation, your designated project manager and engineer team will be able to discuss this with you in more detail. In doing so, we will be able to create a bespoke model for you to create prestigious passenger lifts that fit your building and your brand.

Designed to last, our passenger lifts are the perfect option if you are looking for a solution to move those in the building with ease without compromising on comfort. Create your own bespoke passenger lift today.

Glass Lifts

A luxury shopping centre requires a beautiful modern lift. This is where installing a glass lift will benefit you. Sleek and sophisticated in nature, a glass lift adds another dimension to the lift experience.

As well as the look and feel of the lift, there is also an added layer of safety that comes with the glass that encases it, which allows not only for users to see out but for others to see in, which can act as a deterrent for inappropriate behaviour.

At Sheridan Lifts, we are able to supply glass lifts that match your budget and needs. Our engineers are able to install glass lifts in a new building or as part of a lift refurbishment in an existing building.

By installing a glass lift, you can immediately put users at ease. Glass lifts have an open design, which is favoured by those uncomfortable in confined spaces as their transparency gives users the illusion of having extra space.

In terms of the design, glass lifts are powered using air instead of cables – unlike traditional lifts. This makes them easier to install than traditional lifts.

The Benefits of Commercial Lifts

There are a wide range of benefits to lifts in commercial and public buildings. They are an essential feature of modern commercial buildings and play a key role in creating functional and efficient spaces for businesses and individuals alike.

Better accessibility for all kinds of users – Lifts make it easier for people with disabilities, elderly individuals, and those with mobility issues to access different floors in a commercial building. There are a range of current legislations that require all buildings to be made as accessible as possible, which a commercial elevator can help many businesses to meet.

Improved safety when moving around larger buildings – Lifts are much safer than stairs (particularly with the many additional safety features that are found in modern lifts), reducing the risk of accidents and injuries. This is especially important in commercial buildings and public spaces where large numbers of people are moving around at the same time.

Lifts can save individuals and businesses time – Lifts are faster and more efficient than stairs, allowing the flow of people to move between floors quickly and easily. This can help to save time, especially in busy commercial environments and results in more smooth operations for commercial organisations.

Increased productivity – By making it easier and quicker for people to move between floors, lifts can help to improve productivity in commercial environments. This is particularly true in larger buildings where employees need to move between different levels regularly in order to carry out their day-to-day tasks.

Increased building value and higher tenant satisfaction – For tenants in commercial buildings, lifts can be an important factor in their satisfaction with the property. Easy access to different levels and improved building design can make a building more attractive to potential tenants, which in turn helps make a commercial building more valuable and attractive to investors in the future.


We do more than just supply lifts

While we are one of the leading lift installation companies within the UK, our dedicated technicians and engineers do more than install lifts. We provide a full range of commercial lift services so our clients always have a lift expert on hand to make sure their lifts remain safe and efficient.

Regardless of the type of commercial lift systems you install, you will require regular maintenance checks. For lifts that are specifically designed to transport the general public, such as a passenger lift, you are legally required to have this lift inspected every six months. For lifts that are less required for public use, such as a service lift, inspections may be conducted annually.

Lift maintenance is vital when it comes to ensuring your lifts remain safe for daily use. Signing up to a lift maintenance package is also a great way to make sure that your lift keeps in line with the latest regulations and guidelines, and gives you access to regular commercial lift inspections. As leaders within the lift industry, we prioritise remaining up to date with the latest industry guidelines and requirements to ensure we deliver the best lift solution possible.

Sheridan Lifts has a range of maintenance packages to fit your budget and requirements – starting with the standard package, which includes up to 12 service visits per year. We also have premium and comprehensive packages, which include emergency callouts. As a result of performing maintenance checks, our engineers can anticipate issues, resulting in fewer breakdowns and should be a priority for all buildings featuring a lift.

Unfortunately, no matter how well they are made, lifts have an expiry date. After being in commission for 20-25 years, you will find they begin to break down and fail. Instead of waiting for this to happen, it is worth revitalising the lift and giving it a bit of a spruce. In doing this, you could preserve the lift for another 15 years, giving you the space to put the additional money back into the business and avoid having to make an emergency lift purchase.

As part of the refurbishment services here at Sheridan Lifts, we examine all features of the lift. This includes electrical components to ensure they remain in good condition, as well as the design of the lift, changing the door handles and mirrors if required to make the lift look brand new.

Lift refurbishments enable businesses to save money and keep an eye on their finances. Not only does the service stop you from having to spend money purchasing a new lift, but it also keeps breakdown costs to a minimum.

Sometimes there is no avoiding a lift breaking down. At Sheridan Lifts, we understand the toll it can take on the building and its users when the lifts are not in use.

Our team of technicians and engineers are based all across the UK so they can arrive promptly on-site and deal with the issue as efficiently as possible so normal service can resume with minimal disruption.
