Lifts for Timber Frame Buildings
The most popular method of construction In many parts of the world including the USA, Canada and Australia is timber frame and the UK is starting to agree. Not only are The materials that go into a timber frame system cheaper, more sustainable and more energy efficient than traditional masonry, but the construction benefits are vast. Faster construction with minimal wet works and the ability to continue construction during freezing temperatures all offer significant advantages to a developer.
As members of the Structural Timber Association – Curti Lifts are dedicated to offering a solution tailored to timber frame construction.
Using our Self Supported Steel Structure as a replacement for a blockwork lift shaft, Curti Lifts has installed numerous lifts in timber frame buildings for companies such as Taylor Wimpey, Galliford Try & Rushmon Homes
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 means you have the flexibility to site the lift wherever you wish internally or externally.
