Goods Only Lifts Solutions

Part of our Rise range where safety is the principle design criteria for all of our lifts. We have developed safety measures to protect the end user, the installer and maintenance personnel.

  • Double traction system and double safety cable on the suspension
  • Mechanical blocking of the lift car for safety during maintenance operations in the pit
  • Our doors specific to our platforms with fireproof certification
  • Stop button in pit with a plug point for small electrical devices on maintenance
  • Unauthorised pit access detection that disconnects the platform
  • Latch key inhibitor on the push button panel of every floor
  • Overload detection device. Standard on platforms for loads higher than 1000 kg and optional for smaller loads
  • Blockable main switch with a padlock on the outside of the panel door
  • Thermal circuit breaker to protect against over crrent and short circuits on the lighting circuit
  • The carrier can be provided with doors less lift car with interior lighting, lateral walls (roof less car) of heights between 2 m and 2.5 m or 1.1 m handrails
Goods Only Lifts


Platforms are provided with calibrated guide rails welded to a frame. The suspension is by means of chains and is provided with a rupture valve as protection against any failure of the suspension elements. The shaft space has been optimised and requires a minimum pit of only 120 mm.

  • Dumbwaiters for restaurants, bars, coffee shops
  • Service lifts for shoe stores
  • Small packages
  • Libraries and Book Stores
  • Hospitals, Clinics, Chemists
  • Offices


The platform is more robust with a guide structure made of laminated profiles and metallic rollers, two working cables or chains and two safety cables as protection against any failure of the suspension elements. The platform is suitable for a larger surface area, weights of up to 750 kg and can be supplied with handrails, lateral walls or door-less car with light on the carrier.

The MIDI Plus is built in a similar way to the MIDI, it is a very robust platform with a guide structure of laminated profiles. The sling has been fitted with a lateral guiding of 4 rollers for a better stability when loads are not centred or when using lateral entrances. The goods only lift is ideal for warehouses and retailers as it is designed for loads of around one and two tonnes, which is usually the normal maximum weight of a food pallet. Not only does it have a slow speeds re-levelling option but it can also be fitted with an anti-creep system (pawl device) that keeps the lift car perfectly levelled to the landings whist loading and unloading.

The platform can also be fitted with 1100 mm handrails, 2000 to 2500 mm lateral walls (roof less car) or a door less car with interior lighting. In this, and other models used for heavy loads, the lateral walls and the door less cars have reinforced protections (which can be easily replaced) that have proved highly efficient in protecting against the inevitable bumps and knocks that occur during loading with pallet jacks.


The MAXI platforms are for loads of 3 to 5 tonnes and include the same options as the MIDI Plus. The MAXI is the best option when working with a fork lift truck. Made up of opposing columns, the MAXI is used when the floor of the lift is wider than what is advised for lifts with columns on just one side. Made up of adjacent columns on the same side, the MAXI L is used when a greater load capacity is required than that of a MIDI Plus. In this way, there is still the possibility of entrances via all three sides and utilised the shaft better than the model with opposing columns.

  • Hotel laundry and restaurant services
  • Warehouse service lift for packages
  • Service lifts for merchandise only in retail and industrial buildings


JUMBO's are built for loads from 4 to 10 tonnes and can even be made for loads up to 40 tonnes. The four columns on each corner allow entrances on all four sides, making it highly versatile. It can optionally be supplied with a floor prepared for side entrance. This model is best when a long travel distance with heavy loads is required. It is also equipped with anticreep (pawl device) and slow speed re-levelling. The carrier can also be fitted with 1100 mm handrails, 2000 to 2500 mm lateral walls (roof less car) or a doorless car with interior lighting.

Special Lifts

Lifts with inverted slings are to be used when guides must not protrude from the floor at the last stop and the upper floor itself must be flat and free of any obstacles whilst the lift is not in operation (stages, heliports, etc). For each of these applications, specific safety measures must be taken and a qualified person must operate the lift.


The provided safety locks have been designed for a permanent electrical connection. Doors are kept unlatched while the car is at floor level or with open doors. Our doors are made for the sole purpose of being fitted to our goods only lifts. Fire certified according with EN 81-58. Adjustable and highly resistant hinges that allow an easy substitution of leaves.

Service Lifts

The MINI and MAXI service lifts are a range of small service lifts designed for the vertical transport of small and medium loads and to facilitate multiple applications within the industrial and service sectors.

Our rigid quality controls make these service lifts lasting and reliable products. The service lifts are in accordance with Machine Directive 2006/42/CE. They are supplied with the CE mark. The main advantage of this type of product is its adaptability to your specific requirements. This adaptability is achieved by offering a wide range of sizes and two different installation versions: wall mounted or using a self supporting structure. Moreover, both hydraulic drive (low noise level) and electrical traction drive (for travel distances greater than 8m) are available.

In addition to the above, these service lifts include manufacturing features designed to optimise installation times, such as: manufacture of modular elements, prefabricated electrical installation, ready to plug in, as well as pre assembly of several elements.

City Lifts specialises in vertical transportation equipment. We are Perth's largest privately owned provider of these products and utilise a global network of manufacturing facilities as well as our in-house lift interior manufacturing to deliver superior value for money.
