At Sheridan Lifts we provide a high-quality installation and maintenance service and support companies in the industrial sector in their endeavours. Some of the lifts we would recommend for the industrial sector include:

We work in conjunction with our suppliers to ensure each lift is designed to your specifications. From dumbwaiter lifts to large scale lifts, our project managers and engineers work closely with you to create a service lift to help boost your productivity and efficiency.

Platform Lifts

If you are struggling for space a platform lift could be the option for you. Often used for making the building more accessible for visitors and employees, service lifts can also be designed to transport goods.

There are many advantages of installing a platform lift, they are able to carry heavy loads while being energy efficient. They are also a safe way to transport goods in buildings where there are plenty of stairs as it allows employees to transport goods without the need for taking the stairs.

At Sheridan Lifts, we use three main types of drive systems when we install our lifts. The most durable is the encapsulated chain drive system. With a longer warranty time, it is designed with a driveshaft which rotates while pushing chains from floor to floor depending on your desired location.

Contact a member of our team today to find out more about the different drives and discuss the best platform lifts for you.

Passenger Lifts

One of the more common types of lift, passenger lifts are used across a myriad of industries from the healthcare industry to the commercial industry, we design passenger lifts our customers can rely on. Created to transport visitors and employees from one floor to another, passenger lifts come in a range of different sizes and can hold up to thirty people.

When it comes to creating your lift, there are 25 standard lift sizes and layouts you can choose from. This allows you to handpick a lift that fits in your desired location. If you have specific specifications and design in mind, our project manager and engineer will sit down with you and discuss this with you allowing us to design you a bespoke lift model.

Goods Passenger Lifts

From large tools to manufacturing materials, warehouses and construction sites need to transport goods from the delivery area to the correct floor. This is where installing a goods passenger lift may be the right move for your business. 

Installing a goods passenger lift allows you to transport equipment and users without having to compromise on space. With goods passenger lifts you can combine transporting goods with a passenger lift saving room and the need for multiple lifts. The added benefit of a goods passenger lift is the assurance the materials will remain in pristine condition while in transit.

Lift Repairs

As with anything, lifts are susceptible to the occasional breakdown. At Sheridan Lifts we offer a range of maintenance contracts which include lift repairs. We understand the impact a halt in production or a breakdown can bring for warehouses and factories. This is why our engineers and technicians will work to resolve your issues promptly in the event of a lift breakdown so you can resume business as normal in no time.

Included in our repair and maintenance services we also have a 24/7 customer service number for enquiries which allows the technicians and engineers at Sheridan Lifts to respond to your enquiry and appear on site as soon as possible in the event of a lift breakdown. In addition to this, we also have a one hour response time for emergencies where individuals are trapped within the lift. Keep your lifts in pristine condition with our repair services today.


Lift Maintenance

It is a legal requirement to make sure the lifts you install are inspected every six years or every twelve months depending on the type of lift. (Lifts such as passenger lifts which have human interaction require a check every six months whereas goods whose primary use is transporting goods require an annual inspection)

As leaders in the industry, we keep up to date with the latest regulations and guidelines across the industrial sector. This allows us to make the necessary amendments while carrying out our maintenance checks.

At Sheridan Lifts we provide our customers with a variety of maintenance packages depending on your needs. For the industrial sector, we would factor in things such as regular maintenance checks and access to our emergency services. As leaders in the field, our engineers and technicians are able to predetermine a problem before it actually happens to save you money and time in the event of a lift breakdown.

Lift Refurbishment

Even the highest quality lifts reach the end of their life eventually. After 20-25 years they often need a bit of a spruce and reboot due to regular wear and tear. However in most instances, if checked before the time comes you can expand the lifespan of the lift by up to 15 years, allowing you put the purchase of a lift on the backburner for a bit longer.

As part of the refurbishment services we offer at Sheridan Lifts, we ensure the key elements of the lifts are all in good condition. We make sure the interiors such as the lift mirrors and handles are in pristine order while also checking the electrical components and mechanisms of the lift.

For a business looking to budget and keep an eye on capital our lift refurbishment services enable you to save money. Not only does lift refurbishment prevent you from having to get a new lift earlier than needed, but it also helps reduce breakdown costs and the implications of a lift breaking down.
