The Prime 4000 lift was a perfect solution for Barratt Homes. Our knowledge of this sector meant that the right lifts were specified and installed promptly.

Barratt Homes selected Gartec to install seven home platform lifts at their major new housing development at Hayes Stadium, West London. Barratt were constructing a number of low-cost homes within the 180 residence development, to be managed by Family Mosaic Housing Association. Seven of these low cost homes were designated for people with physical disabilities and therefore wheelchair access was required to the first floor of the houses.
The Prime 4000 lift was specified as it has been designed with the home environment in mind; its compact footprint fitted well within the limited space of a domestic setting and the sleek Scandinavian design complemented the interior décor of the homes. The Prime 4000 is also simple to maintain and operate, with push button controls for ease of use.
As the lifts were not specified until close to the handover deadline, the Gartec team worked to a tight schedule to ensure the lifts were installed on time and to budget. The Gartec team wrestled to overcome power supply issues on the building site, but successfully met the demanding programme, with each lift still only taking two days each to install.
Kerry Stanton from Gartec commented: “The Prime 4000 lift was a perfect solution for Barratt Homes. Our knowledge of this sector meant that the right lifts were specified and installed promptly. The first residents have now moved in to their new homes and the lifts have made a huge difference to their everyday lives”.
Gartec’s comprehensive experience throughout the UK of installing lifts in the home environment – in both social housing schemes and private homes – constantly informs the design of their platform lifts. A new range with enhanced features is due to be launched in May 2012.
Gartec have over eighteen years of experience in the lift industry, supplying platform and access lifts across the UK. Gartec lifts have many features; vandal resistant features such as flush buttons, and the option to restrict access via a locking facility. As standard, all access products include safety features such as safety sensors around the platform, non-slip flooring and overload indication.
