Lifts for Modular Buildings

Modular building methods are revolutionising the industry offering significant advantages over traditional build such as lower Material Costs, less build time (in some cases by months), lower carbon footprint and flexibility of installation (no weather constraints).

For the lift industry, this has proved a challenge. If you imagine a modular building almost as boxes stacked on top of one another, this leaves nothing to secure a lift to.

Using our Self Supported Steel Structure as a replacement for a blockwork lift shaft, Curti Lifts has installed numerous lifts in modular buildings for companies such as McDonalds, Brims, Eric Wright, Portakabin & Elliott.

Sustainable, clean and built to contain a lift without any requirement from the surrounding building, the Curti Steel structures can be slotted directly into the pit and come complete with a built-in lifting beam. Our structures can be glazed, clad or stud partitioned according to the client’s aesthetic preferences which mean you have the flexibility to site the lift wherever you wish internally or externally.

Shabbat Lifts

Working to Zomet Institute Guidelines – Shabbat lifts are programmed to run in constant mode and stop at each floor to allow entry and exit. The call indicator shows when the lift is in Shabbat Mode so the user knows they do not need to push any buttons.
