It is possible to install a platform lift with 2 stops and a rated load of 300-500 kg in as little as 2-3 days. Our bigger platform lifts with a rated load of 1000 kg, and our cabin lifts can be installed within 3-5 days (2-stop lift).
If the lift needs to serve more than 2 floors, the installation time will increase. The higher the lift, the longer it will take to build it, but it never takes a long time to install a platform lift.
Why platform lifts are easy to install #
All of our lifts are machine room less and need very little building adaptation, because they have a low pit and require minimal headroom. Most of our lift models also come with a ready-made lift shaft so you do not need to build one unless you want to.

Installation time of other lifts #
Conventional traction or hydraulic lifts often take several weeks, sometimes even months, to install. This is because you need to build a masonry shaft to fit the lift and also make more adjustments to your building, given that conventional lifts generally need a deep pit and a lot of space above the lift to fit the top machinery. Many hydraulic lifts also need to fit a big hydraulic tank next to the lift. Learn more about the installation time of other lifts here.
