Hydraulic Lifts

Reliable, cost effective and requiring quick to install, our hydraulic lifts are an excellent choice for both residential and commercial properties.

Put simply a hydraulic lift works by a pump pushing oil into the cylinder, which pushes the piston (which moves the lift car) upwards. To descend, the valve opens for the oil to leave the cylinder, and gravity forces the lift down. The lift cannot fall any quicker than the oil can leave the cylinder.  These lifts are very safe, very quiet, very cheap, and in the event of a power cut be operated manually. They are however comparatively slow and not suitable for very heavy usage. We are can help you access whether this is the right kind of lift installation for your property or premises.


Available with capacity ranges from 480kg to 20,000kg and speeds up to 1.6 m/s, our hydraulic lifts are some of the most popular versions around and many repeat customers.

As well as being functional and efficient to run, our hydraulic lifts are available in a wide variety of finishes and accessories, all aimed at perfectly complementing your existing interior design.

Our hydraulic lifts are available as:

· Machine Room-less Lifts

· Conventional Machine Room Lift

Both lifts are suitable for residential and commercial properties and have the same capacity ranges and top speeds.

Machine Room-less Hydraulic Lifts.

Our standard Machine Room-less Hydraulic lifts are highly reliable and in buildings where frequency varies, they are an ideal and efficient solution. With everything located within a single enclosed cabinet, space is optimised and the cabinet can even be installed up to 10m away from the lift shaft. Providing a quiet and smooth ride, our hydraulic MRL lifts are an excellent choice for private homes, apartment blocks and office buildings.

Conventional Machine Room Hydraulic Lifts.

Suitable for both residential and commercial buildings. These do not require a separate motor room, our conventional lifts have the same capacity ranges, speeds and reliability.
