Passenger Lifts

Niche Lifts platform passenger lifts are ideal for the transportation of people within low-rise buildings (up to 9m of travel) and provide a safe and comfortable means of transport for wheelchair users. Our passenger lifts are supplied with fully enclosed lift cars and provide smooth floor to floor travel of up to six stops.

Niche passenger lifts are available in a range of sizes, and due to them only requiring a minimal pit (175mm) they can be easily installed with only limited builder’s work. An additional benefit is that there is no need for a separate machine room.

In environments where space may also be tight, a Niche platform passenger lift is often the best solution, requiring a much smaller footprint than a traditional lift.

Our passenger lifts have many applications and can be found in retail, educational, domestic and residential care home environments.

Selection of Aesthetic Finishes

Niche passenger lifts are available in a range of stylish visual options including floor, wall and ceiling finishes and cladding, including glass. This allows customers to match the passenger lift to the building’s aesthetics and colour schemes. For examples of the available finishes, please refer to our passenger lift brochure.

Safe and Reliable

The passenger lifts we install are very safe for all passengers and are ideally suited for wheelchair access. Our passenger lifts are powered by robust and reliable hydraulic drives, with quiet running, clean electric motors.
